Palm and Vodafone New Zealand introduce Treo 500v
Palm has announced the Palm Treo 500v smartphone on the Vodafone network in New Zealand. The new smartphone combines multiple forms of communication and multimedia capabilities with high-speed 3G mobile Internet access, allowing users to access popular websites, such as YouTube, whilst on the move.

The new Treo 500v smartphone will be available exclusively through Vodafone for several months.

The Treo 500v smartphone runs on the Windows Mobile 6 Standard platform and has a full keyboard, large screen, audio- and video-streaming capabilities, comprehensive multimessaging functionality (Instant Messaging, SMS and email), phone and personal-information-management software in a new design.

Olivier Rozay, Palm's country manager for Australia and New Zealand, said, "The Treo 500v is priced to enable a broader audience to experience the Internet and email on the go. Today's generation has really embraced the Internet as a way of keeping in touch with friends and family, seeking out entertainment and managing their day-to-day lives. We can offer users the choice to do what they want, how they want, when they want. The unique Vodafone interface makes the Treo 500v easy to use even for customers who have never used a smartphone before"

With the Treo 500v smartphone, customers also can view documents using mobile versions of familiar Microsoft applications, such as Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint. In addition, users can use the Treo 500v as a modem for a laptop, so that they can stay connected anywhere within wireless coverage.

Users will also be able to access the Vodafone live! portal and its contents, a first for Windows Mobile devices.

The device comes with a built-in 2-megapixel camera for capturing photos and video and 150MB of user-available memory, expandable with microSD expansion cards. It also supports stereo Bluetooth and the Microsoft Direct Push Technology to connect directly to Exchange Servers.
