Treo 800w Photos Leaked

The Palm Treo 800w has long been rumored, but is this the first "leaked" image of the device.

The leak came courtesy of a forum member at TreoCentral who allegedly received the image from a Sprint solutions engineer. The Treo 800w has been mentioned as a Verizon Wireless release, so it’s possible that both carriers will release the unit when available. The image appears to have been pulled from a PowerPoint presentation and it’s speculated that the image has been stretched. The front of the Treo 800w appears to be a mix of the Treo 500 released in Europe and the Treo 750. If this is truly a photo of the Treo 800w, one must question why the screen shot doesn’t show Windows Mobile 6.

Regardless of whether this is real or fake, you can expect Palm to make some sort of announcement regarding a new Windows based Treo smartphone at CES in January. With the next generation Linux Palm OS delayed until late 2008, Palm’s next generation form factor will most definitely arrive with Windows Mobile Professional. The big question remains the size of the device. If Palm is able to package the Treo 800w into a BlackBerry Curve style form-factor, it would certainly generate excitement in the Palm Treo community.
