Better known for its Palm operating system devices, the Palm Inc. company surprised the world in 2005, announcing the development of a new range of smartphones that will feature Windows Mobile operating systems. The first Palm smartphone to feature Windows Mobile was launched in cooperation with Verizon operator and was called Palm Treo 700w. Although the device was only available in the US for Verizon customers, it made quite an impression and made Palm Inc. extend Treo market to Europe as well. In September 2006, Vodafone was the next operator to bring Palm Treo 750v to its customers and the Sunnyvale-based company managed to spread its domination in Europe also.
It took Palm Inc. another 5 months to update Vodafone's Treo 750v and in February 2007, Palm Treo 750 was released as the peak of the series, featuring the latest technology. The selling price varies a lot between the 2 continents, Europe and North America. If you can get the Treo 750 for only $650 in the US, the selling price on the European continent starts from USD $850 and can exceed USD $1000.
