Palm today announced its first UMTS smartphone, as well as the first Treo with an internal antenna. The Treo 750V features a new body and a new network, but still shares the majority of its features with the 700w. The 750 features quad-band GSM / EDGE and tri-band (850/1900/2100) UMTS, making this Treo a likely candidate for launch on Cingular as well. Features Pocket PC Phone with a 240 x 240 screen, 1.3 Megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and Mini-SD slot. The 750v also adds a new SMS/MMS application that shows messages in a threaded chat, similar to the application on Palm OS Treos.

I don't get it

Rolling Eyes Yes it looks very nice, and I canot wait to actually play with it in person, but with all the techniological advances with PDa's and Celluer phones, why is it that the best camera type they can put on most phones is a 1.3 megapixel?????. I know you don't buy a phone for the camera, but a decent 3 megapixel would be nice.
Well until the technology gets better, the picture quality will not improve regardless of the megapixels. Cell phone cameras don't have an actual lens to focus the image as well which is why there's no point in making the phone more expensive.

Why Cingular and not T-Mo?

Why is it that this phone (being GSM) won't be released on T-Mo but will on Cingular?
Because T-Mobile does not support UMTS in the US yet. They have it in Euro on the 2100Mhz but that's why they tried to buy as much of the new license from the recent aution to bring more function to the network. Right now they are working on a full ...

Making bad reception worse... initial thoughts are how bad GSM reception was on the Treo 650, and now they're removing the stub antenna in favor of an internal antenna? Hope they can get the RF working satisfactory...
The Treo 650 I have get's great reception... where are you? I'm in San Diego, CA.. Almost never have dropped calls...
