A Palm smart phone that runs Microsoft software? Why yes, it’s the new Treo 700w, which uses the latest Windows Mobile software. Available now from Verizon Wireless, the phone also uses Verizon's high-speed, wireless broadband EV-DO network.

For those who go by the numbers the 700w is a dual-band CDMA, EV-DO cell phone handset (800MHz for voice and 1900MHz for data) and is backwards compatible with the 1xRTT data standard. The phone ruses the Windows Mobile Pocket PC Phone Edition, with an Intel 312MHz XScale processor inside it. The 700w comes with 128MB of memory, 60MB of which is dedicated for user memory. As for size, it measures 5.1 by 2.3 by 0.9 inches and weighs in at 6.4 ounces.
Additional features include a 1.3 mega pixel camera, Bluetooth 1.2 connectivity, a MultiMedia card–SD/SDIO expansion slot, and a 240 by 240 pixel colour screen. The removable lithium-ion battery is good for about 4.7 hours per charge.
