Palm Treo running Windows Mobile OS?
Ok, this is something we saw (or not?) coming. A little more than one year ago someone told me Palm (then palmOne) was working on a version of Treo running Windows Mobile. I didn't post anything about this then because it was rumour, although I believed my source (very good reason to) - and that was before anyone talked about this on the Internet.

Since then a lot of talk on the Internet about the possibilities of having this. And why? Because Palm OS 6 wasn't ready, because enterprise applications needed the .Net Compact Framework to run and connect to web services, because of Exchange ActiveSync (this one solved by palmOne licensing the protocol for its treo 650 directly) and lots of other reasons.

Now Engadget has posted three videos showing a Treo running Windows Mobile - apparently a prototype, which they call Treo 670. Although I see the UI is a little different of the current Windows Mobile 5, it could be it. It is actually a CDMA device, since it has the Verizon logo in it.

But could it be some very good designer that is simply running a program with a skin that looks like Windows Mobile? Yes, it could. We will only know for sure when it is released.

I usually don't post about products on Geekzone before their official release, but this one is too nice to let go.

Until the product is announced (if ever), let's treat this as a rumour...
