New Treos these are not, but Palm did have some news to share at CTIA 2007. Today, the company introduced a number of hands-free car solutions, including the Palm GPS Navigator Car Kit for the Treo 750 and the Treo 680, as well as some new cases (umm, yay?).

The Palm GPS Navigator Kit is specifically made for the new, slimmer Treos (other Treo owners can get the same solution from the Palm GPS Navigator Smartphone Edition) and features a cradle with an integrated GPS receiver and a speakerphone--just snap your Treo 680 or Treo 750 into place, and you can get turn-by-turn voice-guided directions and chat on the phone, while keeping your hands on the wheel. The kit also comes with a 1GB memory card preloaded with TomTom Navigator software and maps of the North America. The Palm GPS Navigator Car Kit will be available starting in April for $299.

Other accessories announced today include the Take&Talk DSP Cradle + CarTalk Hands-free Car Kit for $259, the Comfort Plus DSP Hands-free Car Kit for $199, and the Vaja Classic Pouch for the Treo 680 and Treo 750 ($65). For a full roundup of these accessories, check out Palm's Web site.
