Palm Expands Global Reach with First Availability of Windows Mobile-Based Treo Smartphone in Latin America

Palm, Inc. today announced the Palm Treo 700wx smartphone on the Iusacell Network in Mexico, marking the first availability of a Windows Mobile 5.0-based Treo smartphone in the Latin American market.

The Treo 700wx combines a great mobile phone, comprising the functionality and ease of use for which Treo smartphones are known, with the power and security of Windows Mobile favored by many businesses. Today’s announcement offers Iusacell’s customer base more choices and complements the Treo 650 smartphone running on the Palm OS platform.

“We’re continuing to expand our global growth strategy, with the goal of giving our customers worldwide more choices to satisfy the growing demands of the mobile work force,” said John Hartnett, Palm senior vice president, global markets. “The Treo 700wx is the first Windows Mobile Treo smartphone in Latin America and will offer customers a true competitive edge — the Palm experience combined with ready access to Microsoft’s world-class email solution.”

“Treo smartphones continue to provide customers with innovation, ease of use and functionality in a stylish form factor,” said Eduardo Kuri Romo, general manager of Technology and Data Division for Iusacell. “For customers who prefer to have Microsoft’s Windows operating system applied across all their corporate computing assets, the new Treo 700wx gives users a convenient way to access their business-critical documents at broadbandlike download speeds on EvDO coverage areas. With these data transmission speeds, it is possible to offer advanced commercial applications, such as online TV and remote and mobile access to video camera and MP3 music.”

“Mobility today means far more than reading email outside the office,” said Jesus Bonequi, marketing manager for Microsoft Mexico. “People need to be able to access Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents, manage their calendars, search the Internet and more with a single device. We are pleased that Iusacell and Palm are launching the Treo 700wx to provide their customers with a powerful smartphone that answers the needs of life on the go.”
