I was wrong in my comments before. I thought the Telecom New Zealand, Palm and Microsoft announcement
of the new Palm Treo 700wx on CDMA EV-DO would be the first one outside the U.S.
I just got a press release from Palm annoucing the launch of its Palm Treo 700wx Windows Mobile
device in Canada, through Bell Canada. This is just a few hours before our local announcement.
The Treo 700wx provides the same great world-class Treo experience and ease of use that customers expect, as well as the following key features:
- Support for Email on the Go: Windows Mobile Messaging and Security Feature Pack (MSFP), which includes Direct Push Technology, native S/MIME support, certificate-based authentication to all Exchange data, and remote and local device wipe, is available out-of-the-box giving smartphone users fast, automatic wireless updates of their email, calendar items, contacts and tasks. The Treo 700wx smartphone also supports Good Mobile Messaging and Good Mobile Defense for robust security and fleet management, giving users support for web-enabled enterprise systems, including sales force automation (SFA), customer relationship management (CRM) and corporate intranets.
- Built-in Dial-up Networking (DUN) Capabilities: Treo 700wx smartphone users can take advantage of broadbandlike download speeds on their laptop computers by using the new smartphone as a wireless modem via USB technology. This out-of-the-box functionality offers an alternative to Wi-Fi, enabling users to access a high-speed connection in coffee shops, airports or hotels.
Additional Treo 700wx Features and Benefits
- Device User’s Guide -- customers can view the full User’s Guide (located in the Quick Tour and My Treo sections) right from their device, providing convenient access to tips, troubleshooting techniques and how-to instructions;
- 1.3-megapixel camera to shoot crisp, clear digital images and videos;
- 64MB RAM for program execution;
- Integrated Bluetooth(R) 1.2 wireless technology for communicating with compatible headsets, car kits, computers and printers equipped with Bluetooth technology;
- Removable battery and non-volatile memory;
- Expansion-card slot (SD, SDIO, and MultiMediaCard compatible); and
- 240x240 transflective (TFT) screen
Let's see when this device is available here in New Zealand. I didn't get any other information from Palm, Telecom or Microsoft about this device, so I am still waiting for some data to work with.
