Palm Wanda features

  • Tri-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE
  • 3G/3.6 HSDPA
  • Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard
  • 320×320 2.2″ QVGA color display
  • Full Qwerty keyboard
  • 2 megapixel camera
  • GPS
  • 1200mAh Battery
  • BURY hardwire car kit (tbd)

The Palm Wanda will run Windows Mobile Standard (no touch screen). There is no currently shipping Palm product in the US that is
comparable to the Palm Wanda. To date, all US releases have been Windows Mobile Professional (ie. touch screen) devices. With the growing
popularity of Windows Mobile Standard devices such as the Samsung BlackJack and Motorola Q, such a device would likely be a successful
release in the US for Palm. The Treo 500v or Palm Wanda, should not be confused with the Palm Centro. Despite similar form factors, the build quality of the Treo line is said to be of a higher quality than the value positioned Palm Centro.
