Palm Treo 755p at Verizon

Verizon this morning confirmed previous rumors by releasing its version of the Palm Treo 755p. The smartphone is a considerably more streamlined, faster version of the company's now-outdated 700p with an internalized antenna and 128MB of RAM. Software is its main focus with support for real-time 'push' e-mail from Microsoft Exchange servers and a built-in Google Maps tool for mapping and associating contacts to physical locations.

The revamped Treo also brings a 1.3-megapixel camera and a miniSD card slot to add as much as 4GB to the internal 60MB of storage. Contrary to original predictions, however, the 755p will sell for less than predicted at $400 after a mail-in rebate and signing a two-year plan. Contract-free pricing is unlisted but believed to be $570. Verizon sells the phone online and by phone today but will not carry the 755p in stores until January 7th.
