Palm and Vodafone to release 3G Treo in Europe

 Palm and Vodafone 13th July 2006

Palm and Vodafone have announced that they are working on a 3G Windows-based Treo smartphone, due to be released in Europe before the end of 2006.

No firm details have been given, but it can be assumed that it will be a unit derived in part from the US Treo 700w - but the exact details of the unit won't be released until later in the year. It will support push email and run the Windows Mobile 5.0 operating system.

The announcement comes at a difficult time for Palm in Europe, as it has recently had to withdraw the older Treo 650 from Europe because it does not meet the EU's new ROHS regulations.

Competition is fierce in this market sector, with capable messaging smartphones from Nokia, Samsung, BlackBerry and the possibility of a European version of the Motorola Q next year. A critical assessment of Palm's position might well be that it has left it too late to make an impact. Still, Palm virtually created the PDA market, so the new device should at least be very promising.

The new Treo should be available in most European Vodafone markets by the end of 2006.
