Palm announces Treo 750 to be generally available across Europe
Posted: 05-Feb-2007 [Source: Palm, Inc.]

[The HSDPA capable Treo 750 running Windows Mobile 5.0 will be made available across Europe through Palm's online store and retail outlets beginning February 6.]

London -- Palm, Inc. today announced the Palm Treo(TM) 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 (http://eurostore.palm.com) and from retail outlets in the coming month, beginning Feb. 6. 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, underlining Palm's commitment to its European customers.

The Treo 750 combines the hallmark 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. 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. The Treo 750 offers mobile professionals other corporate email options, including streamlined access to Microsoft Exchange.

Unique to the Treo smartphone on Windows Mobile 5.0 is a suite of software enhancements developed by Palm that underscores its brand promise of fast access, ease of use and simplicity. Examples include the following:

* 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 stay on top of voicemail with on-screen, VCR-like icons, such as rewind, delete and fast-forward controls for easy navigation; 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.
