Palm Treo 800w debuts with Sprint

After weeks of rumors, the Palm Treo 800w is officially announced on Monday for Sprint. Smartphone features integrated Wi-Fi, GPS, EV-DO Revision A, and a slimmer design.

The world may still be all abuzz with iPhone 3G talk, but believe it or not, there are other smartphones out there, and Sprint just happened to land a pretty good one.

The carrier and Palm on Monday unveiled the Palm Treo 800w, a Windows Mobile 6.1 smartphone targeted at business users. Now, we'll admit that we've given Palm its fair share of criticism over the years for being behind the times and lacking innovation, but while the Treo 800w doesn't offer anything earth-shattering, it offers enough to stifle some of our complaints.

We're talking integrated Wi-Fi, GPS, EV-DO Revision A, and a slimmer design.

Pique your interest? Then head on over to our hands-on review to see how it fares. After rebates and discounts, the Treo 800w is available for $249.99 with a two-year contract.
