More About the Palm Treo 750

This model is the first Windows Mobile-based Treo to use the GSM cellular-wireless standard.

The 750 greatly resembles previous smartphones from Palm, but, unlike its predecessors, does not need an external antenna. It has a tablet design, with a 240-by-240-pixel touchscreen above an alphanumeric keyboard.

It runs Window Mobile 5.2 for Pocket PC on a 300 MHz processor from Samsung. This device has 64 MB of RAM and 128 MB of ROM, about 60 MB of which is available to uses as non-volatile internal storage. A miniSD card slot provides additional storage capacity.

This quad-band GSM phone also supports GPRS, EDGE, and UMTS.  Palm hasn’t yet made an official announcement of this, but the word on the street is that a software upgrade will add HSDPA support.

In addition, it includes Bluetooth 1.2, and give users the ability to use wireless stereo headsets.

This Treo has a 1.3 megapixel camera with 2x digital zoom. It is able to take both still images and video.
