The Treo 500v is the first full revision to the Treo hardware from Palm in years. It is a new Windows Mobile 6 standard smartphone that abandons touchscreen interactivity, but adds Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR with the HFP, HSP, A2DP, and OPP profiles, a 2 Megapixel camera and 150 MB of usable memory that can be expanded with a microSD card. As with previous generations of Treos, it has a full QWERTY keyboard and large screen. It will support Microsoft's Direct Push email as well as POP3 email accounts. It is a tri-band GSM/GPRS phone, supporting the 900/1800/1900 bands as well as UMTS 2100 3G. Palm will likely release a variant of the 500v that supports US networks at a later date. It is available in white and gray.
