The Palm Treo is a line of smartphones acquired and subsequently developed from Handspring. The Treos are one of the most popular PDA mobile phones. They have a number of integrated features making it possible to check the calendar while talking on the phone, dial directly from contacts list, send emails, and on recent models take pictures.
As of December 2005, there have been thirteen Treo models, listed below in order of introduction. With the exception of the Treo 700w, all Treos utilize Palm OS; the Treo 700w uses Windows Mobile, although it is probable that a Palm OS version will also be released in the near future.
In addition, Palm has recently negotiated a licensing deal with RIM which will allow Treo 650s and "other wireless devices" to connect to RIM's popular BlackBerry e-mail service. Palm and RIM have announced that they expect to roll out Blackberry-enabled Treo devices in early 2006; pricing and availability have yet to be announced, although Palm has stated that the service will be available to both new and existing Treo 650 users.
