Rogers adopts Treo 750
Palm's Treo 750 smartphone has made its Canadian debut, and is now being carried by Rogers Wireless. The phone is the first Treo on Rogers' HSDPA broadband service, hosted in a limited number of urban areas; the company has also seen fit to load the 750 with Windows Mobile 6 Professional, which includes features such as Direct Push e-mail and Office Mobile productivity software.
The display is a 240x240 touchscreen, and its memory includes 60MB of free internal storage that can be boosted with miniSD cards up to 4GB in size. Music and other audio can be streamed to stereo Bluetooth headsets. Rogers is charging $650 CAD for the 750 without a contract, but the price can drop as far as $250 with a three-year agreement.
