Treo 670 Pictures: Detailed Study

After the fairly shocking news that first came out on Friday about a Treo 670 running Windows Mobile, some more pictures of this “we think it’s for real” Treo 670 were released I noticed something unusual about them.  Namely, the screen border on the Treo 670 was significantly wider than that on our Treo 650. 

At first I thought that this might have something to do with the angle and distance at which the pictures were taken but after some high-res Photoshop comparisons (overlay below) I was able to categorically confirm that the border on the Treo 670 is roughly twice the size as that on our Treo 650 – the usable portion of the screen is therefore approximately 41mm versus 44mm wide.

Below, you can clearly see the increased border on the 670 (left) compared to the Treo 650.

Additionally, some people have suggested that the Treo 670 may only have a screen resolution of 240x240 but from the images below I don’t believe that this is the case.  Both screens have 11 usable lines and fill almost exactly the same area.  Having said this, the smaller usable screen area may be an indication of lower resolution.

At the same resolution, Contacts on the Treo 670 (left) and Treo 650 are almost identical but for the fact that they are using different display fonts.

Finally, since we don’t yet have a real side-by-side picture of the Treo 670 and 650, below is a section overlay.  Aside from the obvious square versus rounded keys, the Treo 670 appears narrower both at the top and bottom of the phone (you can clearly see this at the bottom right). [Please disregard the slight screen misalignment which is due to two different perspectives.]

Think this is a hoax then?

Steve - until there is an 'official' announcement by Palm there will always be some doubt about the veracity of these pictures. However, given the level of sophistication of this release plus the chatter by some insiders I doubt that we are the object of a hoax. Then again, technology has advanced to a stage where one can pretty much fake anything... take your pick...

Cheers, A.
