Palm Release Treo 700p Smartphone
Palm, Inc. has announced the Palm Treo 700p smartphone, which the company says includes hardware and software innovations centered around usability, connectivity, multimedia and compatibility.

The new Palm Treo 700p is the first Palm OS device to connect to CDMA EV-DO cellular networks. Pricing and availability for the Palm Treo 700p smartphone will be announced later by Sprint and Verizon Wireless.

Treo 700p users can also take advantage of EV-DO download speeds on laptop computers by using the new smartphone as a wireless modem via USB or Bluetooth wireless technology. For the first time this capability is available out of the box on a Palm OS-based product.

The Treo 700p smartphone includes a 1.3-megapixel camera and camcorder. Users can organize and share photos, and once albums are created, Treo 700p smartphone customers can use the slideshow application to add music, audio captions and transitions.

The Treo 700p includes Pocket Tunes from NormSoft, Inc. for playing music files. The new application, with an easy-to-use Palm-customized user interface, offers customers more options for sorting music and making play lists. With an upgrade to Pocket Tunes Deluxe, Treo 700p customers can play content from all music stores that use Microsoft's PlaysForSure/Janus technology.

The Palm OS based Treo 700p smartphone includes 128MB of memory (60MB user available). By using SD memory cards, currently available with 2GB of storage (sold separately), in addition to the 60MB of dedicated user storage, users have plenty of room to download and carry important documents and multimedia content.

Palm deciced to use the Palm OS version 5.4.9 to drive this new device.

A CD in the Treo 700p smartphone box includes extra applications such as VoiceSignal, for users who want voice dialing, and Avvenu, for those who want access to their home- or work-computer files while on the go. A secure VPN software client is provided by anthaVPN. Other software include games from Handmark (Solitaire) and Astraware (Bejeweled).
