As scheduled, Palm announced a new product today for our friends across the pond: the Palm Treo 500v. Available in charcoal gray or glacier white, the smart phone sports a new, slimmer design (4.3 inches high by 2.4 inches wide by 0.6 inch deep; 4.2 ounces) and runs Windows Mobile 6 Standard Edition, which means, unlike past Treos, it won't have a touch screen (hmm, interesting). It offers 3G/UMTS support, Bluetooth, a 2-megapixel camera, and 150MB of user-available memory with a microSD expansion slot. Other than the new look, there's really not much to get worked up over. We're hoping the Palm Centro, which has been confirmed for Sprint, will do a little more to get our hearts aflutter. The Palm Treo 700v will initially be available to Vodafone customers in Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, the United Kingdom, and Vodacom customers in South Africa.
