Just in time to boost telesales and cash in on the dearth of non-iPhone related news, Sprint has launched online sales of its hotly-anticipated Palm Treo 800w. With Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional, GPS, WiFi (with a dedicated toggle switch), and EVDO Rev. A tucked under its 320×320 touchscreen display, the Palm Treo 800w is Palm’s latest attempt to retake at least a portion of their once considerable smartphone market share.
The Palm Treo is slimmer, sleeker, and more power-packed than any of its Treo predecessors. And, without that unsightly antenna stub mucking up an otherwise clean-design, the Palm Treo 800w is exactly what we were looking for in a next-generation Palm smartphone. Unfortunately, that recessed touchscreen isn’t exactly up to date with the competition.
Sprint is offering the Palm Treo 800w at the expected price of $249.99 after 2-year contract and $100 mail-in rebate are applied.
