Treo 800w Spec Leak

Palm's Treo 800w will perform better than expected but have unusual feature omissions when it launches on Sprint, if a leaked training document obtained by Engadget proves accurate. The device's camera is said to be uprated from 1.3 to 2 megapixels, while the device will also have a USB 2.0 connection that lets its owner sideload content much faster than on the 755p or earlier Treos. In Sprint garb, however, the device appears to have dropped MMS picture messaging and instead uses Sprint's proprietary Picture Mail for quick image sharing.

Most other details rumored for the phone appear to be confirmed as part of this newest leak, including Windows Mobile 6.1 as the phone's foundation, at least assisted GPS, and Wi-Fi. Palm's phone is also believed to have EVDO Revision A cellular Internet access and in past rumors has been pinpointed for a launch for all Sprint users on July 13th. Pricing with a contract is predicted to be $250.
