Pics of the 3G Treo 750 appear online

Summary: The Palm Treo "Lennon" is now being called the Treo 750. This Windows Mobile 5 Phone Edition device will run on the Cingular 3G high speed UMTS and/or HSDPA network being rolled out right now. Where is T-Mobile in the wireless broadband race?

TOPICS: Mobility

I recently posted a photo of the Palm Treo Nitro that runs the Palm OS and now pics of the Treo Lennon, Windows Mobile version, are online with the name of the device, the Palm Treo 750. Palm Addicts posted a collection of links to various sites discussing the upcoming Treo 750 that looks like it will be launched on the Cingular Wireless network. Engadget has a person named The Boy Genius that keeps on getting some exclusive information and photos of devices and has the first photos of the Treo 750 with the Cingular logo. The device apparently will run Windows Mobile with UMTS and HSDPA 3G wireless data support.

While I am trying out a Sprint PPC-6700 on their EVDO network, I am now thinking of maybe trying out Cingular since the flexibility of owning GSM devices with SIM cards is very compelling. Cingular seems to be making great strides in launching their UMTS and HSDPA networks, while T-Mobile is quite silent on their 3G rollout. It looks like we'll have plenty of choice this holiday season for 3G wireless devices on Cingular, Verizon, and Sprint.

  • Boy Genius Flunks Photo 101

    My granddaughter has a "peek and speak" that looks just like this...but probably works better.

    Crappy photos from the Boy Genius (there's a Jewish mother looming larger than these photos in his life) aside, did anyone notice that the Treo 750 logo--fuzzy as it may be--is actually framed on the display as though it's being loaded from a web site?

    ZDNet, please quit pulling our collective chain with asinine non-articles like this.
    • Too clear and we may lose the source

      The Boy Genius submits spy photos and details on Engadget regularly and is very accurate with his information. While the photos are fuzzy, I imagine if he makes them too clear then the person who keeps leaking product details to him may get caught and Engadget could lose this valuable source of information.

      There was other information previous to this showing the Cingular roadmap that showed a Treo Lennon and Nitro were coming soon so these photos and info seem to confirm and validate that info. I hope he continues to provide photos, even if they are crappy, because it is helpful to have an idea what is coming down the pike for planning future purchases.
