Hong Kong gets Treo 650

The newly launched Palm is spreading its smartphone message into Hong Kong with a Chinese-language version of its Treo 650.

The company said it is selling a GSM/GPRS/EDGE quad-band version of the device through various providers including CSL, 3, SmarTone-Vodafone and SUNDAY outlets, as well as chain stores and retail shops throughout Hong Kong.

The device comes built-in with the CJKOS Chinese character display and handwriting input system, and supports both traditional and simplified Chinese characters, as well as the Treo 650's native English interface.

Palm recently added Treo sales to Switzerland. Since it made its debut last November, the Treo 650 has been launched through U.S. carriers such as Sprint, Cingular and Verizon.

And if you give them a call in Hong Kong, remember that "Wei" is the standard Chinese telephone greeting.
