Palm Treo 700p announced

I’ve been waiting a long time for this.  Today, Palm announced the release of the Treo 700p, offering for the Palm user what the Treo 700w did for Windows Mobile crowd earlier this year.

The 700p will feature:

  • EV-DO (broadband Internet wherever you are)
  • 312MHz Xscale CPU,
  • 128MB flash memory (60MB usable)
  • 1.3 megapixel camera
  • Bluetooth
  • SDIO
  • 320 x 320 resolution screen

No word yet on the price or the official release date, but something to look for.  Some say that Palm OS 5.x is getting a little long in the tooth, but Palm keeps churning out successful devices that use the OS.  I’ve been eye-balling this myself as a replacement for my CLIE TH55.  The only problem is that I don’t need…and can’t use…EV-DO.  You just can’t find a provider in Kosovo!

On the other hand, the release of the 700p is certain to unleash a deluge of Treo 650s on Ebay. Now that’s something to be looking out for.
