Treo 800w Gets New Bluetooth Feature

by Reads (2,347)

Palm, Inc. has released a software patch for the recently-released Treo 800w that allows users to do voice dialing over a Bluetooth connection.

What Is It?

This smartphone comes with the short-range wireless networking standard Bluetooth 2.0, and can be used with various wireless headsets and car kits for hands-free calling.

The software patch just released will add a feature to this: 800w owners will be able to use a Bluetooth headset or car kit to initiate phone calls on the Treo 800w via the Voice Command voice dialing software.

How Do I Get It?

This software patch is available now on Palm’s website. It is a free download.

It is only for Sprint’s version of the Treo 800w, and should not be installed on any other device.

As it is a patch, and not a full ROM update, it will have to be reinstalled if the smartphone ever undergoes a hard reset.
