Treo 550 Wanda & Treo 800w Drucker

Thanks to a leaked Vodafone presentation we get the first “official” confirmation that a forthcoming Windows Mobile 6.1 Treo 800w or 850w codenamed “Drucker” will offer built-in GPS and WiFi as well as a “flush screen” design (finally). 

Additionally, we get to see the first image of a Treo codenamed “Wanda” also running Windows Mobile 6.1 to replace the Treo 500 and offering a Centro-sized body with a very clean and attractive pebble-like smooth rounded back.

Given the fact that Treo smartphones are typically released in the US at least a few months ahead of Europe I am anticipating that we may see the Treo 800w (Drucker) launched between April and June and the Treo 550 (Wanda) at the beginning of Q3 (that is IF Palm decides to release this model stateside).

Before this you should also expect to see the GSM release of the Palm Centro with AT&T by February and I’m crossing my fingers hoping that Verizon will also be ready to launch its Centro sooner rather than later this year…

I hope we'll see a PalmOS version of the Wanda soon...

i agree with edulabbe. i wish there'd be a palm OS version of both the wanda and drucker

Eh, the screen and keyboard get smaller and smaller... pass.....

by Richard | Jan 7, 2008 3:26:12 PM

Palm OS version for me too please...

by Reggie | Jan 7, 2008 7:08:31 PM

Make that a Windows 6.1 Professional on the Verizon network for the 800?

by Tony | Jan 8, 2008 8:37:43 AM

First, I'm with KaribOS, Palm OS plz. Also, the price and design don't really excite me, but Kudo's on the camera upgrade. Hope this isn't another E-Z break phone design. I like the robust build of my 650. I think I'll pass on this one, if it seems too fragile, and upgrade to a 755P. I have too much GREAT software to change now.

I agree--Palm OS is highly preferable. However, I don't think we'll see one running it until Palm OS II is out. Too much of a stretch for Garnet to fit.

This telephon is not enought popular today. Many people waste their money.
