Palm Introduces Treo 750 Windows Mobile in Europe
Palm, Inc. has announced the Palm Treo 750 smartphone, previously available on Vodafone's 3G/UMTS network since September 2006 in the UK and across much of Western Europe, will be made generally available across Europe via Palm's online store and from retail outlets in the coming month.

This move broadens the customer base that will be able to benefit from the Palm experience on Microsoft's Windows Mobile 5.0 operating system and adds HSDPA capability to the device.

The Treo 750 combines the Palm experience of a multifeatured mobile phone with email, messaging, web browsing and organization software all in a compact design. Among the software on the Treo 750 smartphone will be Microsoft's Pocket MSN, giving users access to MSN services, such as instant messaging and support for MSN Hotmail accounts within Outlook Mobile.

The device will be compatible with 3G UMTS/HSDPA networks. The UMTS/HSDPA is a global standard and natural 3G evolutionary path for GSM providers.

The Treo 750 smartphone runs Windows Mobile 5.0 Pocket PC Phone Edition, offering users access to Outlook applications as well as the ability to view and edit Microsoft Word and Excel files and view PowerPoint and PDF files. The touch screen makes surfing websites, gathering data and navigating forms and applications much easier.

The Messaging and Security Feature Pack (MSFP) is available out of the box with the Treo 750 and includes Direct Push Technology, which gives users connected to a Microsoft Exchange Server fast, automatic wireless updates of their email, calendar items, contacts and tasks. It provides added security features for IT administrators, such as over-the-air password policy enforcement and remote wipe for lost or stolen devices. MSFP also gives users over-the-air lookup of a company's Global Address List (GAL), providing employees with quick access to colleagues' email and contact information.

Unique to the Treo smartphone on Windows Mobile 5.0 is a suite of software enhancements developed by Palm, including a threaded chat view for text and MMS messages; 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; -- Ability to manage a call directly from the Today Screen and capability to ignore a call and quickly send 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.
