Treo 700wx Launched on Pelephone
Palm Europe has announced the availability of the Palm Treo 700wx smartphone for Pelephone’s CDMA/EV-DO network in Israel. Pelephone, as Israel’s first operator, pioneered the country’s cellular communications revolution, resulting in one of the world’s highest market penetrations of mobile phones. The Treo 700wx smartphone is available now at Pelephone stores and authorized dealers.
The Treo 700wx smartphone combines broadbandlike speeds on Pelephone’s high-speed network with wireless email and rich media capabilities all in one device – bringing Palm’s world-class ease of use to the Windows Mobile 5.0 platform. The Treo 700wx smartphone incorporates a full QWERTY keyboard for easy messaging, a 1.3-megapixel camera, a bright 240x240 touch screen and support for Bluetooth stereo headsets. The built-in 64MB of RAM allows the use of a more robust set of applications, while storage can be enhanced by using the SD slot to add memory cards of up to 2GB.
Roy Bedlow, vice president, Palm Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA), said, “Palm has always had a strong presence in Israel since the introduction of the Palm Pilot, but this is the first time Israelis will have the chance to experience a CDMA-based Palm Treo smartphone. The Treo 700wx smartphone is the first Palm device to come localised with a Hebrew keyboard and language. Pelephone has been a valuable strategic partner for Palm in Israel, and it is great to be able to offer them the same Treo product that has seen such success in other parts of the world.”
