Palm Treo 700w Available from Verizon Wireless
Palm, Inc. and Verizon Wireless have announced the availability of the Palm Treo 700w smartphone, the first Treo smartphone to take advantage of Verizon Wireless' BroadbandAccess service on its EV-DO network.

The Treo 700w smartphone also is the first Treo smartphone to run the Microsoft Windows Mobile operating system. It combines a great mobile phone with high-speed wireless data access to email and business applications.

BroadbandAccess is Verizon Wireless' high-speed wireless data service, based on CDMA EV-DO (Evolution Data Optimized) networks, giving customers a fast cellular internet connection.

The newest member of the Treo family builds on the award-winning design of the Treo 600 and Treo 650 smartphones and takes advantage of Windows Mobile 5.0, offering Microsoft Office applications for Windows Mobile, Internet Explorer Mobile and Windows Media Player Mobile; as well as direct access to Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 for mobile access to information.

The new smartphone delivers a unique suite of software enhancements on top of Windows Mobile that includes some Today Screen enhancements, which feature the ability to "dial by name" with a few keystrokes on the keyboard, perform a web search directly from the Today Screen and perform one-touch dialing with personalized photo speed dials.

Other features include the ability to manage a call directly from the Today Screen and stay on top of voicemail with on-screen, VCR-like icons, such as rewind, delete and fast-forward controls for easy navigation; and the ability to ignore a call and quickly compose a text message such as "In a meeting" or "Can't talk right now" by selecting the "Ignore with text" option from the incoming-call screen.

Users will benefit of a new 1.3-megapixel built-in digital camera, integrated Bluetooth 1.2 wireless technology for communicating with compatible headsets, car kits, computers and printers equipped with Bluetooth technology; removable battery and non-volatile memory; built-in voice Command for voice dialing.
