Palm, Inc. officially unveiled the Treo 755p last week, but this smartphone didn’t launch at that time. However, this device is now available from Sprint PCS.
As expected this model — which will be one of the last to run the Garnet OS — comes in either a blue or a burgundy casing.
It sells for $279 with a two-year service agreement and a $100 mail-in rebate. It’s base price is $580 for those who are not signing a new service contract and don’t send in the rebate form.
The Treo 755p can be purchased now through Sprint.com.
An Overview of the Treo 755p
This smartphone uses the same general form-factor as two other recent Palm models, the Treo 680 and Treo 750. This means it has a tablet shape with a QWERTY keyboard below a 320-by-320-pixel touchscreen.
Those interested in this model should be pleased to learn that it offers support for the 3G cellular-wireless networking standard EV-DO.
In addition, it is the first Treo to ship with built-in support for Microsoft’s push email system.
The 755p runs Garnet OS 5.4.9 on a 312 MHz XScale processor. It offers users 62.8 MB of internal storage, and a miniSD slot for additional storage.
Naturally, in addition to being a CDMA phone this device is a fully-functional PDA. It is able to keep track of the user’s address book and calendar, and even comes with Documents To Go, a suite of applications that allows users to open and edit Microsoft Office documents, spreadsheets, and presentations.
But it isn’t just about business. This Treo includes a 1.3 megapixel camera with image and video support, and comes with software for playing MP3s and videos.
Users of this device are able to use a Bluetooth headset to make hands-free phone calls.
