Palm Treo 750v

 PalmOme Treo 750v Discontinued
13th September 2006

The Palm Treo 750v is Palm's first 3G device, available exclusively on the Vodafone network in Europe, a device that we first featured back in July. As with the Palm Treo 700w, this is a Windows device rather than a PalmOS one.

It's a Windows Mobile 5.2 device with a 1.3 megapixel camera, 240x240 pixel display, and the Treo 750v has stereo Bluetooth and miniSD expandable memory. There's 128Mb of internal memory, 60Mb of which is available to the user.

Vodafone support both Exchange Push Email and BlackBerry Connect on the Treo 750v, plus it supports standard internet email protocols, so it should be a good proposition for corporate customers.

 Palm 750v on Vodafone We said that it's a 3G device, and in fact the Palm Treo 750v supports UMTS 850, 1900 and 2100 so it can be used on North America UMTS networks as well as European ones. On top of that, the Palm Treo 750v has quad-band GSM, GPRS and EDGE data so it can be used pretty much anywhere outside of a 3G coverage area. However, there's no WiFi support on the Treo 750v, nor does it support video calling.

It's a more compact device than the Treo 700w, even though it weighs a significant 154 grams, the Treo 750v is actually 15% lighter than the previous model. Overall, the Treo 750v measures 111x58x22mm and has a maximum talktime of 4.5 hours with up to 10 days standby time.

The software on the Treo 750v is the standard Windows Mobile stuff, including pocket versions of Office applications, a PDF viewer and web browser. Palm have added some enhancements though, and the 750v will also be tailored for Vodafone, so it won't be quite a vanilla implementation.

It's a decent looking handset with an impressive amount of features, but corporate customers might not be so keen on the "fun" features of the camera and multimedia player. However, Palm haven't had much of a presence in Europe lately and even the old Treo 650 was recently withdrawn from sale as it didn't meet EU environmental standards. This particular market segment is beginning to get crowded too, although to its credit, the Treo 750v will be available in the next few months, rather than being a "coming soon" phone that you have to wait ages for.

Vodafone and Palm say that the Treo 750v will be available in the UK from October 2006, presumably with other Vodafone regions following afterwards. However, Vodafone UK is notoriously reluctant to sell devices such as this to consumers, so if you're a private user you may be out of luck.
