Could be a lot of Treos

Palm has announced that it is launching the Treo 650 in China. The Treo is localized for the Chinese language and is being offered through CEC Telecom Company. According to Palm, CECT is an excellent fit for Palm's sales and marketing strategy in China. The collaboration taps into the growing China market, which according to IDC is expected to be close to 7 million converged devices to be shipped by 2009, representing a compounded annual growth rate of 28 percent.

"Palm is thrilled to collaborate with CECT to help reach the huge market potential in China and redefine the smartphone experience there," said John Hartnett, newly-promoted Palm senior vice president for worldwide sales. "We look forward to serving Chinese mobile professionals and businesses with a tool that helps them stay connected to important information, whether it's in the corporate data center, on the web or on the smartphone itself."

"The increasingly mobile work force in China is looking for mobile devices that feature superior ease of use and excellent hardware and software integration -- all to manage their busy lives," said Gu Lei, chief operating officer, CECT. "Palm's innovative and easy-to-use smartphone, together with CECT's well-established status in the local mobile-phone market, will provide a competitive edge for Palm and help it lead the development of smartphone trends in China."
