New Treo 800w Pictures and Details
With an imminent release rumored for July on Sprint, the floodgates of Treo 800w images have been opened. Starting with a now-pulled Sprintusers forum post and quickly spreading to other sites, several new leaked spy shots clearly show what appears to be a production version of the Sprint Treo 800w. While still substantially less sleek and stylish than the GSM 850, the 800w does look nearly identical to what the earlier pre-production leaked photos suggested.
An additional forum post from someone who claims to be a Sprint employee is suggesting that the device will debut on July 13th on Sprint, with a final price of $250 w/ 2 year contract and after an undisclosed amount of mail-in and instant rebates. Read on for further pics and details.
Size-wise, the device does appear to fit about halfway in between the Centro and the older Treo 680/750/755p. Judging by the image of the front of the unit, the screen size looks to be larger than the Centro's small 320x320 LCD but Palm's recent trend of omitting some button illumination looks to continue here, with no evident backlighting of the d-pad arrows or the two WM-exclusive multifunction buttons under the screen.
The back panel appears to have been redesigned yet again, with the camera lens moved higher alongside the portrait mirror instead of its prior placement under the mirror where it was easily smudged or blocked by the user's hand. The rear speaker grille and integrated antenna appear slightly restyled as well.
