Palm arrival approaches
The new Palm Treo handset due to launch on Vodafone will be available in September, Vodafone has said.
Vodafone has also posted a page on its website dedicated to its imminent arrival, and inviting interested customers to register their interest.
Details of the handset itself are still to be announced, although unconfirmed reports suggest it will be based heavily on the Palm 700 available in the USA.
The 700 sports a QWERTY keyboard, 1.3 megapixel camera and an expandable memory slot. A spokesperson for Palm said they were 'still making final tweaks' to the new model. It has been confirmed that like the 700, the new Treo will run Windows Mobile.
The new Treo will be the only Palm handset available in the UK since the Treo 650 was pulled from shelves for falling short of European safety standards.
