Palm to make 3G Treo for Vodafone

Jul 13 2006 - 11:01 AM ET | 3G, Palm, Vodafone

Palm took the unusual step of pre-announcing (though without many details) a new handheld designed exclusively for Europe. Earlier this month it came out that due to new regulations regarding the environment, Palm would be unable to continue selling its Treo 650 model in Europe.

The new Treo hasn't been officially named, but will sport 3G UMTS connectivity and run Windows Mobile. It will be an exclusive to Vodafone. More information will be out before the launch which is expected in the fourth quarter.
