Palm, Inc. and Sprint are introducing the Palm Treo 800w, Sprintís newest smartphone with Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional. The new Palm Treo 800w operates on the Sprint Mobile Broadband Network and comes out of the box with support for EV-DO Rev. A data speeds, WiFi for data and GPS capabilities.

The companies say the Treo 800w is Palmís most business-friendly phone yet. For example IT departments can simplify infrastructure and lower costs with a direct connection to Microsoft Exchange Server, giving users up-to-date email, contacts, calendars and access to other productivity applications.

Palm designed the Treo 800w for easy-to-use mobility with a full QWERTY keyboard, five-way navigation and one-touch buttons to the most-used applications, making it a smartphone people want to use.

With EV-DO Rev. A support, peak network download data rates increase to 3.1 Mbps and peak upload data rates increase to 1.8 Mbps; average download speeds improve to 600 kbps to 1.4 mbps and average uplink speeds increase to 350-500 kbps.

The one-touch WiFi button provides a clean WiFi experience that gets Treo 800w users rapidly connected at home, in the office or in WiFi hotspots. It includes 802.11b/g WiFi and built-in Internet Explorer Mobile for website browsing.

This device also offers maps, point-to-point directions and point-of-interest (POI) searches for locations such as restaurants or stores. POI search is available directly from the Today Screen and is integrated with contacts, giving customers one-touch access to the places they want to go. Treo 800w also supports Sprint Navigation for turn-by-turn directions as well as other popular third-party location-based services applications.

Users can download email attachments to view and edit Microsoft Word and Excel files, view PowerPoint and PDF files, and open ZIP files.

Treo 800w customers can leverage the speed of the Sprint Mobile Broadband Network to access Sprint content, including Sprint TV allowing users to watch live TV or video-on-demand with full-motion video. This allows users to choose from more than 50 live television channels and watch programs such as CNN mobile, FOX sports and E! Entertainment; access NFL Network and special programming via Sprint Exclusive Entertainment.

The Treo 800w is available for US$249.99 after discounts and rebates with a two-year contract.
