Palm's newest 700p device
Palm adds EVDO capabilities to its latest smartphone

Palm has launched another Treo Smartphone. The company launched the Windows Mobile 5.0 based Treo 700w back in January and today the company has announced the Treo 700p which uses Palm OS 5.4.9 and is powered by a 312MHz Intel XScale processor. 128MB of non-volatile memory is included; 60MB of which are available to the user. But most important of course is the network support for the new phone. The Treo 700p supports CDMA 800/1900MHz and CDMA2000 EvDO (backwards compatible with 1xRTT and IS95).

The 6.4 ounce phone features a color 320x320 screen, 1.3 megapixel digital camera with 2x digital zoom and 352x288 video capture. Bluetooth 1.2 is supported and a Secure Digital slot is included for additional storage/peripheral add-ons. The Treo 700p offers up 4.5 hours of talk time and 300 hours of standby time.

The Treo 700p will be available at first on Sprint-Nextel and Verizon Wireless networks. Pricing will be announced in the coming weeks by both carriers.

Palm Infocenter has posted its preview of the new device and they go over all of new software, features and capabilities of the new Treo 700p. Here's a blurb on the device's wireless modem capabilities:

You can use the Treo 700p as a wireless modem for your laptop or desktop computer. Palm now includes an easy to setup DUN (dial up networking) connection that can be used over Bluetooth or with the USB cable. The included USB cable will now also trickle charge the device so you don't have to worry about draining the battery when using it in DUN mode. Not all carriers may support this feature, and some might even require you to purchase a additional DUN data plan.
