Palms next gen 3G Treo details emerge

The information on Palm’s wizard-themed Gandalf smartphone continues to drip out, like warm molasses from the mouth of a drunken child, and it looks like its official name will be the far less magical Treo 500. A 3G handset using HSDPA and Bluetooth 2.0, there’ll be two main differentiations – a Windows Mobile 6 version and a non-touchscreen alternative running a new incarnation of the Palm OS – and then a number of colour options.Weighing in at 135g and measuring a svelte 117 x 65 x 13.8mm, that makes the new Treo over 8mm thinner than the 750 and addresses the key complaint that the Palm range is under-equipped in the sexy stakes compared to competitors. The screen, in both touchscreen and basic variants, is a 2.4-inch QVGA unit capable of 65k colours, while onboard memory maxes out at 256MB and 64MB of RAM. Stereo Bluetooth should make the 500 range a decent portable music option, with the 2-megapixel camera rounding out the multimedia features.Still no word on release date, but it looks like Vodafone will remain the initial carrier.” via

Palm Announces New Foleo PIM Software and Games

“Palm today announced three new third party applications for the Palm Foleo when it ships later this summer. MotionApps has announced its mDayscape Personal Information Manager, which will provide a sync-able calendar, tasks and contacts application. Astraware has also announced the first two games for Palm’s new Foleo mobile companion — Astraware Sudoku and Solitaire and promised that additional titles will follow. MotionApps’ mDayscape is a Personal Information Manager developed natively and exclusively for the Foleo mobile companion. The application is simple and easy to use with Foleo’s rich user interface. mDayscape includes contacts, calendar and tasks, three powerful applications tightly integrated with each other, the Palm Foleo and the Treo smartphone. “Bringing a contacts, calendar and tasks application to the Foleo further increases usability of the Treo and enhances the user experience in a continued shift away from the desktop and toward a smartphone as a center of computing,” said Voja Lalich, chief executive officer of MotionApps. “All of us at MotionApps are very excited to announce the launch of mDayscape on Palm’s first mobile companion product.” “Using MotionApps’ Quick Add feature, a user can add a new calendar event in seconds, and the event will be mirrored automatically on the user’s smartphone. All this is done with the comfort, efficiency and convenience of the full-size keyboard and wide screen on Foleo,” said Mark Bercow, senior vice president of business development for Palm, Inc. “via
