palmOne Launches Treo 650
We haven't been too impressed with the latest offerings from palmOne. The new T5 really could've used some built-in WiFi and voice-recording, and the slider design in previous models were an unnecessary mechanic. Hopefully, today's introduction of the new Treo 650 will get folks excited again. It's considered an evolution of the 600 model. Some key new features include an improved 312 Mhz Intel PXA270 processor, a new 320x320 High resolution TFT screen, built in Bluetooth, non-volatile flash memory, a removable battery, and a new connector. The camera is still .3 megapixels. I've had some limited experience with the older model and my big thumbs really couldn't come to grips with the little keyboard. Still, this is one of their better overall devices. The Treo 650 will be available as either a digital dual-band CDMA/1xRTT or a GSM/GPRS/EDGE quad-band world phone, with pricing to be set by individual carriers. Carrier availability is expected to begin later this year in the US, with worldwide rollout to follow in 2005.
