Palm Treo

Palm Treo
The Palm Treo is a line of smartphones originally acquired and subsequently developed by Handspring. However, after Palm’s purchase of Handspring, they are now manufactured and maintained by Palm, Inc. The Treos are one of the most popular PDA mobile phones. They have a number of integrated features making it possible to check the calendar while talking on the phone, dial directly from contacts list, send emails, and recent models include software to use the built-in camera.

As of December 2005, there have been thirteen Treo models, listed below in order of introduction. With the exception of the Treo 700w, all Treos utilize Palm OS; the Treo 700w uses Windows Mobile.

In addition, Palm has recently negotiated a licensing deal with RIM which will allow Treo 650s and “other wireless devices” to connect to RIM’s popular BlackBerry e-mail service with PalmSource Mail for BlackBerry Connect. Palm and RIM have announced that they expect to roll out Blackberry-enabled Treo devices in early 2006; pricing and availability have yet to be announced, although Palm has stated that the service will be available to both new and existing Treo 650 users.
