Palm Treo 850 pictures appear

You may recall that Philip reviewed the Palm Centro for us a few weeks ago and, although Philip was fairly happy with the device, my comments were that it was a nice form factor but as I’m no fan of the Palm OS it wasn’t for me. Having used Windows Mobile for years I find Palm less friendly, but that said I’m sure Palm fans feel the same way about MW!

So when I first heard about the Palm Treo 850 I thought this might well be the answer. Similar in design to the Centro the 850 comes with Windows Mobile 6, 400MHz and 128MB RAM. You’ll also notice from the image below (courtesy of Boy Genius) that there’s a 320×320 square screen that’s possibly subject to the same software compatibility issues as the Samsung i780. But check out the rest of the Spec. below (subject to change) GPS, HSDPA and 256MB ROM!!
