The 750 has been shipping in Europe for quite some time but faced delays getting the device certified in the US.

While the Treo 750 is a 3G device (in both the US and Europe) it does not yet use HSDPA, the most advanced standard. Palm noted to MobileTracker that a software update will make the Treo 750 compatible with HSDPA and that the company hopes to be able to push that update to Cingular customers at a future date.

Features of the Treo 750 include:

  • Quad-band GSM/EDGE plus UMTS 850/1900/2100
  • Windows Mobile 5 Pocket PC phone edition
  • 240×240 pixel touch screen
  • 1.3 megapixel camera
  • 60MB of user-available storage plus a miniSD card slot
  • Bluetooth with A2DP support

Cingular will begin selling the Palm Treo 750 tomorrow. It will retail for $399.99 after a 2-year service contract. Cingular also carries the Treo 680 which is a paired down version that is being marketed more towards consumers.
