Treo 750: Even More Pictures & Details

Well, it seems that this will become an incredibly good week for Treonauts with new pictures of the forthcoming Treo 750 coming out almost daily now.

This latest set is the first to show the SIM card slot located below the battery at the back (top right image) as well as a very good front shot of this first antenna-less Treo…  As I previously posted (see Treo 750: More Images) the SD card slot and IR port have also moved from the top of the smartphone to the right side while the back speaker appears to have been enlarged.

Thats a miniSD slot, not SD. Look closely at the label on the cover.

You write that this new Treo is slimmer than current models. You may wish to study the previous set of photos more closely.

Surur - I heard this about the miniSD but the slot appears too big for this...

me - I am also beginning to have doubts about the slimmer form factor. However, a previous image showing a _much_ slimmer battwould indicate a much slimmer Treo as well...

We'll have to wait until the Treo 750 is actually released to know for sure.

Cheers, A.

Enlarge the label on the cover.

Its clearly the miniSD symbol.

Nice evoluiton in the Treo form factor, now can we get that design for CDMA phones to keep our storage card safe, get rid of the antenna and have a better speaker. Don't see why not.

Surur--enlarge the label in which picture? All the ones I've looked at of the door just show an indistinct blur, whether at regular resolution or zoomed.

me - quit whining. A blog is merely a place to post thoughts. Don't take it as the end all be all word for the new treos. People can be wrong. Just because you've got your panties in a wad because the new treo is starting to look a little thicker than the anticipated doesn't mean you have to take it out on andrew. Just write "hey, that doesn't look as slim as we expected, what do you think?" Dissertations aren't necessary.

Kthx.

This picture shows it particularly clearly.

For your convenience I have enlarged it...

and added some contrast, plus the miniSD logo for comparison.

The M and i is particularly clear, as is the sweep of the D. Its quite unequivocal.

Once you know what you are looking for it can be seen in the other image too.

http://img208.imageshack.us/img208/2697/7503km2.png

Its quite clear the first letter is an M.

Notice the SD symbol is just an S and D, no M's.

The case is compelling and clear - the 750v has a miniSD slot, not SD.

Even clearer in this negative image.

You can replicate all of these processing in your own image manipulation software.

Yeah I think me's gone a little crazy there. Other places have similarly reported it as slimmer and from the pics it does look a little slimmer just not as much as everybody wold like.

As it happens I think Andrew's done a pretty good job of walking the line (with regard to underground, unsanction, early information on products) and the genuine review of released products.

me, I think you should take a pill and look at some of his other posts before accusing Andrew of being a Palm plant. As much as Andrew likes his Treo he doesn't hold anything back when it comes to things that could be improved.

Surur: I can see you have a lot of free time... LOL (just kidding).
Anyway, it's a pity the new Theo 750p has a MiniSD slot.
I just bought a 2Gb SD card for my T5, hoping that I would use it with "my new Treo 750"...

by Fred | Aug 28, 2006 5:55:25 AM

And just how does the Palm WiFi card fit in the slot??
So the WiFi card works with the 700W, but not with the 750????? Uh, I thought new products were supposed to be improvements on older ones.

13
by TazUk | Aug 28, 2006 7:05:51 AM

@Fred, Well if it had built in Wi-Fi the you wouldn't need the card :o)

14
by Fred | Aug 28, 2006 9:37:00 AM

TazUk

You make a very good point. But why is neither option possible with the 750?????? I would be happy with built-in WiFi (best) or being able to use a WiFi card (almost as good). I know that Palm is "afraid" that its customers will use a WiFi enabled phone to make VOIP calls, but, hey, this is already happening.
Hmmmmm.

Some more info has popped up on that site. It confirms miniSD and NO WIFI


Codename : Lennon

Operating System : Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0

CPU Clock : 312MHz

ROM size : 128MB

RAM size : 64MB

Resolution : 240 x 240

Expansion Slots : miniSD (SDIO)

Wireless LAN : Not supported

Built-in Camera : CMOS sensor, 1280x1024 (1.3MP)

Comments:
Customization to make it works similar to PalmOS Treo650. Example, Releasing of network (Press and Hold Power button) and some application that is added into the extrom like Speed dial software buttons plug-ins on today screen. Slimmer Battery compare to Treo650 makes us thinks that it will drain faster than 650. Having a hot swap memory slot but CAPPED will be difficult for us to use SDIO cards but it maybe plans to release their own branding SDIO cards to fit in.

No WiFi again? Palm - a company of backwards morons. Honestly, will they EVER have WiFi on their Treo products? I truly don't get it. I want SO much to like the Treo and Palm, but they seem dead set on making so many people hate them.

by numnut | Aug 29, 2006 10:35:07 AM

Lush> The only thing holding me back from a Treo is no wireless. My T3 needs an upgrade (I need a PDA w/ keyboard).

The CEO Culligan said in a recent interview they will add wireless "when the time is right" and the reason they currently don't have it, is because it drains the battery (yeah right). Anyways, I think it was in the Washington Post (?). Can someone post the link?

18
by Lush | Aug 29, 2006 8:40:58 PM

numnut, I'm totally with you. It's been the ONLY thing holding me back for like the last year or so. I've never ever encountered a company as blatantly backwards as Palm.

VOIP - This is the reason why built-in WiFi is missing on the US versions of the new Treo phone. We all have to remember that in the US, Palms serves the carriers rather than the end customer.

Ever wonder why different carriers are getting different versions of Treo phones at different times even though their networks can all support one Treo standard be it Windows or Palm OS?

Ever wonder too why an unlocked version of the 750 will not be available for a while after the release of the branded Treo?

The carriers are worried that the unlocked Treos and build-in WiFi capable phones will result in end-users making VOIP calls and them losing the $$ from out-of-network calls.

Don't we all wish we lived in Europe and Asia sometimes?

Sorry im new here, what is a VOIP call?

21
by Dee | Sep 6, 2006 2:21:23 PM

Voice-Over-Internet Protocol Raffi - such as the service provided by Vonage - a technology that allows you to make telephone calls using a broadband Internet connection instead of a regular phone line.
