Palm today presents its new Palm Treo 755p phone. This is the first Treo phone with support for Microsoft's Direct Push Technology email and Google Maps for mobiles. The phone uses Palm OS and has a new design, with an integrated antenna, a slimmer form factor and a mini-SD slot for memory expansion.

  • Ability to watch mobile video directly on the Treo 755p with Sprint TV, which features more than 50 channels of live and on-demand content, including CNN, FOX, ESPN, The Weather Channel, MTV, E! and The Cartoon Network;
  • Dial-up networking via USB or Bluetooth wireless technology on the Sprint Mobile Broadband Network for using the Treo 755p as a modem for a laptop computer (requires an appropriate service plan);
  • Superior phone functionality, including one-touch speakerphone and conference calling, the ability to ignore a call with text messaging, and the option to use the touch-screen dial pad;
  • Support for EvDO (Rev.0) speeds, which makes streaming mobile content, such as live TV, movie clips and audio from radio stations, as well as training videos or company communications, enjoyable;
  • 128MB memory (60MB user available) and support for Mini-SD memory cards up to 4GB;
  • Voice-memo application, which can be used to create custom ring tones and add voice annotations to photos or simply record a quick memo;
  • Threaded SMS/MMS messages in a single chat view and out-of-the-box support for Yahoo!, AOL, and Gmail;
  • 1.3-megapixel digital camera and video recorder, and application to organize and share photos;

  • Color touch screen and full QWERTY keyboard for easier email, messaging and web use;
  • On-device user's guide, giving customers access to the full user's guide right from the device; and
  • Default data transfer mode, which allows users to be notified of incoming voice calls while using data services, rather than calls automatically going to voicemail.
  • It's available for as low as $279.99 with a two-year service agreement and a $100 mail-in rebate. The Treo 755p is available in two colors, midnight blue and burgundy.
