Palm Treo 500 Leak

Palm's hotly rumored "Gandolf" will be a larger release than expected, a new leak reveals through updated specs. The metal-accented smartphone should officially take its place in the Palm lineup as the Treo 500 series and will come in more than just the white, Windows Mobile 6 version shown in the past: a modified version of the Palm-created Garnet OS stripped of touchscreen support will provide an alternative for those who want different software. The budget emphasis also won't stop the handset from featuring the same 64MB of RAM as the more expensive Treo 700wx or 3G wireless Internet through HSDPA for those on GSM providers.

Also finding its way into the phone would reportedly be a 2-megapixel camera, 256MB of built-in flash for storage, and a Bluetooth transmitter with stereo audio support. Updated release information isn't included, leaving releases beyond Vodafone a mystery. [via IntoMobile]
