Treo 700w: New Pics & Full User Manual
Thanks to an update of Palm’s Treo 700w documentation on the FCC’s website Treonauts anxious to learn more about this forthcoming Windows Mobile smartphone (which should become commercially available exclusively from Verizon beginning in February 2006) will be happy to see a few more pictures below of what both the inside and outside looks like.
As I posted earlier in “Treo 2006 Product Pipeline Update” it now appears almost certain that both the Treo 700w (Windows Mobile) and Treo 700p (PalmOS) will share exactly the same hardware design – a ‘squared’ version of the Treo 650.
Additionally, what I hadn’t really stopped to think about before is that both the Treo 700w and 700p will use the same Multi-connector cable (right) that we currently use on our Treo 650 which means that you’ll be able to reuse any of your existing accessories with either of these new smartphones.
Finally, the Treo 700w’s full User Manual has also become available to download in PDF and below are a couple of screenshots of the images and diagrams contained within. I rather like the idea of having a “Web Search field” on the main Today screen.
Most of the manual relates to software issues and there are unfortunately no additional technical specifications aside from a mention that the Bluetooth will be v1.2 instead of v1.1 currently found on our Treo 650. However, some Treonauts are already complaining because the manual states that “you cannot use a Bluetooth headset to listen to MP3 files on your smartphone” – a function which Windows Mobile 5 does not currently support.
Also, the manual repeatedly points to a website www.palm.com.mytreo700wVerizon but this is not yet live on Palm’s servers…

Treonauts are always looking at the future…
