Customers can activate the Treo 650 on a variety of Vodafone Australia voice and data plans, including the AUD$49.95 GPRS Unlimited Data Bundle.

The Treo 650 combines a quad-band mobile phone with a wide range of productivity applications, including email, organiser and web access. Users also can view, edit and create Word and Excel compatible documents or access PowerPoint presentations on the go. In addition, Bluetooth wireless technology allows the Treo 650 to connect wirelessly to other compatible Bluetooth devices, such as printers and headsets.
