Treo 800w Specifications

New Treo 800w – The Only Windows Mobile 6 Series Smartphone in the World to Offer Touchscreen + WiFi + GPS + 3G + Front QWERTY Keyboard

With the launch of the new high-end enterprise-class Windows Mobile Sprint Treo 800w (expected on or around July 22nd) as well as the Verizon Treo 800w we continue to get more and more leaked information. 

This latest round provides us with the most complete set of CDMA Treo 800w specifications yet and offers us a great glimpse inside what I expect will become (along with the GSM Treo 850) the most successful lineup of Windows Mobile smartphones on the market upon their release.

Treo 800w Specifications

Radio: One of the main benefits of the Treo 800w will be access to the high-speed wireless broadband network that both Sprint and Verizon offer (although not confirmed yet it is believed that the Treo 800w will support Rev. A.).  Additionally, there is now also a GPS chipset built-in.

  • CDMA 800 (Digital Cellular), 1900 (PCS), and 1.5GHz (GPS)
  • EVDO and 1XRTT

Phone Features: The main change here is that instead of a 2.5mm audio jack + charging & sync connectors the Treo 800w now offers just one microUSB connector that is used for audio, synch & charging.

  • Personal speakerphone
  • MicroUSB standard B connector (for sync cable, charger, and audio accessories)
  • External antenna port
  • Microphone mute option
  • 3-way calling
  • Hearing Aid Compatibility (HAC) (M4/T4 rating)
  • Dedicated Calendar/Notes and Mail/Messaging buttons

Hardware: The Treo 800w now offers a slightly faster processor as well as a much improved 2.0 megapixel camera and microSDHC slot that will

  • Processor technology: TI processor, 333MHz
  • Expansion: microSD/SDHC memory card slot
  • Battery: Removable & rechargeable lithium-ion battery
  • Camera: 2.0 megapixel (1600 x 1200) with automatic light balance
  • Display: 320 x 320 pixel touchscreen with 65,536 colors (16-bit color) and user-adjustable brightness
  • Keyboard: Built-in backlit QWERTY keyboard plus 5-way navigator

Connectivity: Finally the Treo 800w is the first Palm smartphone to include built-in WiFi capabilities and the Bluetooth 2.0+EDR allows you to make the most of the extensive range of available Bluetooth accessories on the market today.

  • Wi-Fi (802.11b/g and compliant with 802.11i)
  • Infrared (1.2-compliant)
  • Bluetooth wireless technology (Complies with Bluetooth 2.0+EDR
    specification. Supports GAP, GOEP [OBEX], SPP, SDAP, OPP, HSP, HFP 1.5, A2DP, AVRCP, PAN, PBAP, ActiveSync, and BPP.)

Operating System: The Treo 800w will now be powered by the latest version 6.1 Professional of Windows Mobile.

Size & Weight: Although the Treo 800w retains the same width and length of the Treo 750 it is a full 0.70 ounces lighter as well as being as slim as the Centro (only 0.73 in / 18.5mm).

  • 4.41 in. x 2.28 in. x 0.73 in. (112mm x 58mm x 18.5mm)
  • 4.94 ounces (140 grams)

Software: Aside from all the standard Windows Mobile applications included as standard, the Treo 800w also offers:

Pricing: The 800w is expected to be priced at around $250 (after rebates and 2 year agreement).

Overall: One important point to note is that upon its release the Treo 800w will be the ONLY Windows Mobile 6 smartphone in the world to offer all of the following:

  • Touchscreen with stylus
  • WiFi
  • Internal GPS
  • 3G Wireless Data Connectivity
  • Full QWERTY Keyboard

Am I the only one that wants to stab someone for using miniUSB for headset?

by Andrew | Jun 14, 2008 11:13:27 PM

Nick - I can't disagree with you... Unfortunately, it seems that most WM smartphones are now moving towards this microUSB connector...

Cheers, A.

by Blake | Jun 15, 2008 2:54:22 AM

Andrew, is WM6 already running on any phone now? My friend is thinking of switching to a device with the new WM6 because he heard it might be a bit more stable than past WM OS. Thanks

"Release, .. . the . . . . freakin . . phone already!!!"

by Charles | Jun 15, 2008 9:02:03 PM

I agree with you Scott...just sell the damn phone already!

So as time goes by, I am losing some faith in Palm. Not to sound like all the naysayers as I do like Palm and have stood by it for a long time. However this doesn't account for just plain impatience by their customers and their apparent lack of a speedy recovery of those who have seen or experienced the "other" side in the mean time.

Yes, I rushed out and got the Centro on Sprint because it was what I wanted...smaller, pretty much fully featured, and well just different. But now that a lot of other companies have put forth their best efforts, I am praying Palm doesn't let us down moving forward. I'm considering maybe switching over to WM6, but I wish I could trial it first. AND I will NOT buy one of those crappy looking versions shown on this post...only when it comes out on Sprint looking like the possible ATT model (spiffy looking black) will I consider the switch over. Also I'd really like a glimpse of the new Nova OS that more than likely will get pushed out again and again...come on Palm give us just a little taste why don't ya!

I understand the idea of marketing, but damn...catch up to the times already Palm!

Thanks Andrew for bringing us the latest and greatest!

I think this phone looks like poo. That said, I think the more recent reason for delay has been a result of new product development dude from Apple making sure they get it right with Nova particularly.

by ddeathx | Jun 16, 2008 10:02:41 AM

What do they mean the ONLY blah blah blah in the world? Are they hiding in a hole somewhere? The Samsung i780 with the same features and better design already launched months ago.

by Steven | Jun 16, 2008 4:20:26 PM

I was thinking the same thing ddeathx. Palm is no innovator, just a copycat.

by Scott | Jun 16, 2008 6:25:31 PM

"What do they mean the ONLY blah blah blah in the world? Are they hiding in a hole somewhere? The Samsung i780 with the same features and better design already launched months ago"

Maybe they mean one we can actually get soon? That well, exists...I don't know of a single carrier that has or is about to have the Samsung i780.

Oh, and the 800w is CDMA, the i780 (from my brief lookup on it on google) appears to be a GSM only phone - again, that apparently isn't even for sale that I could find).

Thanks, bu bye.

by TazUk | Jun 17, 2008 9:50:24 AM

The Samsung i780 is indeed GSM, it's also only Tri-band rather than Quad-band so doesn't support the GSM-850 frequency used in the US.

by ddeathx | Jun 17, 2008 11:08:50 AM

Too bad bros. Guessed US of A is really slow in getting new stuff. We already have HTC Diamond in our hands and Samsung i900 Omina launching next week. GSM is the way to go here. No locking of CDMA whatever. Just need to change SIM card into the new phones. Thought some of the telcos there are on GSM?

"The Only Windows Mobile 6 Series Smartphone in the World to Offer Touchscreen + WiFi + GPS + 3G + Front QWERTY Keyboard"

All of this is offered by the Imate Ultimate 8502.

by MaxLaw843 | Jul 14, 2008 5:53:34 PM

All I want for Christmas is a Treo 800p ("p" as in Palm OS) sold either through Suncom or as an unlocked GSM. I would buy it sight unseen like I did with my Treo 650. (I now use a Treo 680.)

For those thinking of WM OS, think of the intuitive Palm OS instead and get the nice folks at Palm to yield to a bit of pressure. As far as intuitive, one of my associates came in all ga-ga over the newest iPhone (stood in line Friday for quite a few hours) and said how it would offer assistance in putting a new telephone number or contact into the phone. Hated to bust his bubble (Nah!) but Palm OS has been doing that for sometime now!

by VanS | Jul 25, 2008 4:47:24 AM

I have an HTC Mogul (also from Sprint) which runs Windows Mobile 6, and it has a touchscreen with stylus, WiFi, internal GPS, 3G wireless data connectivity and a full QWERTY keyboard. I have had it for nearly a year. I also believe that several other phones have all of these features on Windows Mobile 6. Looks like someone needs to do a little more research before writing articles...

by Nic | Aug 11, 2008 12:20:54 PM

It said front facing QWERTY keyboard, yours slides out.

I currently have a Palm 700p, and while I like it a lot, I've had it for a while and it is getting a little long in the tooth...plus I just want something new. Honestly, I can't say I'm excited about this 800W at all. I'm ok with Windows 6.1, but I hate to think how well it will work on this phone with these specs (333mhz processor, 128mb RAM, 1100mAh battery). I'm waiting for the HTC Touch Pro (Raphael, Herman). This thing looks amazing. It will have no problem running WM 6.1 (528mhz, 288 RAM, 1340mAh battery). Plus the screen is bigger and has a higher resolution. I was really excited about the 800w when I first heard about it in January...but after looking at what others have to offer, I am really disappointed in Palm. If they had released this phone a year ago, it would have sold like hotcakes, but now...I'm not too sure. They dragged their feet entirely too long.

by Bizzo | Aug 31, 2008 1:50:36 PM

Switched from the 755P. Decided to make the jump to the Windows OS. Some good thoughts, some bad...my biggest beef is that I can not set a different reply to email address. Does anyone know a work around?

by Tranzz | Oct 13, 2008 12:23:36 AM

I'm wanting something with the same size keyboard as a 700p, 755p (I damaged mine) or a Blackberry. I've been Palm OS since I got my 1st Handspring in '99. I really want a decent sized display and Grafitti back!!!!!

I think - actually KNOW that iphone and others are selling hot because they have a display about the size of a what a Palm Tungsten has had for,,, 4 years now!

As far as looks go, I'm not a valley girl, I use mine for serious functionality. Get a sparkly pink skin for yours if you need it
iphone is what the Tunsten (or Clie) should have been about 3 yrs ago!

by Jack | Oct 14, 2008 1:07:28 PM

@Tranzz: I use the 800w, and I actually like the keyboard better then my old 700p, or my work supplied 750 (which is similar in design to the 755p, except WinMo). The display is maybe just a wee bit smaller on the 800w, but the same screen protectors used on the 700p will work on the 800w.

WinMo 6.1 on this device actually works plenty fast. Palm has a 3d graphics accelerator built in which is probably why it runs so swiftly. The 800w has the serious functionality you'd want, IMHO.
