Palm Treo 750 HSDPA

Smartphone maker Palm this morning revealed a new, unlocked version of the Treo 750 that adds HSDPA. The change makes the new phone the first from the company to support 3G wireless and gives it downstream Internet speeds as quick as 3.6Mbps, far exceeding the existing EDGE and UMTS connections available before.

The introduction also represents the first time the phone has been widely available in Europe, ending an exclusive deal for the Treo 750 struck with Vodafone in the Fall of last year. Palm's latest phone works with any GSM-based cell network and can be purchased unlocked for 429 ($944) in the continent. A US launch is probable given the phone's support of US networks and Cingular's existing use of the 2.5G-based Treo 750.
