Telus picks up Treo 755p, adds Google Maps for Canada

Palm Treo 755p at Telus

Telus today launched its version of Palm's Treo 755p for its network. Similar in many ways to the reference version at Sprint, the Telus version is the first Palm phone in the country to support Google Maps and lets subscribers plot driving routes or find nearby locations without having to add a separate GPS subscription. It also adds still-rare support for EVDO Revision A access that gives even faster mobile Internet transfers, including upstream. Unlike some providers, Telus also allows using the Treo as a modem over USB or Bluetooth.

A 1.3-megapixel camera, miniSD card support up to 4GB, and other hardware features of the PalmOS-based smartphone have otherwise been untouched by Telus. The carrier has its edition of the 755p in shops today and sells the phone for as little as $230 Canadian ($216) with a three-year plan but scraps the contract requirement for $550 ($518).
