Treo 800p First Images
This weekend further details and the first pictures of a next generation PalmOS Treo 800p have emerged.
It’s always hard to tell from blurry spy shots (above) what the relative proportions of the device might be but a side-by-side comparison with the Treo 755p (below) appear to indicate that the Treo 800p will have:
- A smaller display (still a square touchscreen with 320x320 resolution though) running PalmOS Garnet
- A narrower body and by extension also narrower keyboard (about 10–15% less than previous models)
- A shorter body (possibly shaving up to 5mm at the top)
- The same HotSync connector as current devices (meaning that most existing Treo accessories will work fine but naturally the smaller form-factor will require new Treo cases)
- Much more “rounded” edges and body (moving away from the angular design first introduced with the Treo 700)
Although the thickness of this new Treo 800 (unconfirmed name) appears to be roughly the same as that of a Treo 680 the anonymous source who took the pictures pointed out that the overall form factor is smaller and thinner than a Treo 650. Also, the keys of the keyboard are made out of a soft translucent plastic.
Finally, these latest pictures of a Treo 800p seem to put to rest previous rumours that a Palm OS device with a rectangular non-touchscreen display might be released. Clearly, the previous Treo 800 images (above) are now with some degree of certainty those of a future Windows Mobile Treo 800w and a similar form factor running PalmOS will not be released.
