As expected, customers who plan to use the Treo 700p as a wireless modem need to buy one of Sprint's Phone as Modem plans (pricing unclear this point)
If you don't need the "Phone as Modem" plans, Sprint offers reasonably priced EvDO plans for Internet on the device, starting at $15/month.
Ideal for customers who want to extend their workplace and stay connected for personal needs, the Treo 700P builds upon the success of earlier models offering enhancements in several areas including broadband-like download speeds, an enhanced Blazer Web browser and an updated Palm OS (version 5.4.9).
Sprint is enabling the Treo 700p with flexible connectivity options like phone-as-modem that takes advantage of the devices capability to be used with a laptop to provide high-speed data access. Sprint is also expected to be the only wireless carrier to offer live TV capabilities - via Sprint TV - on the Treo 700P at launch.
"Sprint realizes that every business customer is also a consumer and uses mobility for productivity, social connections, entertainment and news," said Danny Bowman, vice president of product marketing for Sprint. "The Treo 700P is ideal for customers who are looking for a device that provides a combination of power and elegance to satisfy the need for owning a stylish, cutting-edge device while still helping them to be more efficient and productive."
The Treo 700P allows Sprint customers to do more in more places and provide a powerful productivity and entertainment experience. Features include:
"The new Sprint Treo 700p delivers on Palm's commitment to provide business and mobile professionals with the tools they need to stay productive while on the road," said John Hartnett, senior vice president worldwide sales and customer relations for Palm. "The Treo 700p provides a world-class email and Web experience and, combined with Sprint's high-speed EV-DO network, gives businesses more reasons to extend their corporate information with a Treo mobile solution."
For content, the Treo 700P has access to Sprint downloadable games, ringers, screensavers and other Palm OS productivity and entertainment applications applied directly on a customer's Sprint bill. Additional content is available via the Sprint PCS Software Store provided by Handango, an intelligent on-device catalog of applications and digital media, allowing users to find, download and buy software, games, ringtones, graphics and other applications simply and securely.
