The folks at The Boy Genius Report managed to get a snapshot of the 850 – we at TamsPPC now have the full specs of the upcoming Treo 8850 due to a good friend of mine working at Palm’s(who recently got his box).

He describes the box as following:

This is not the PalmOS version of the Centro.

It can be regarded as the evolution of the 750 line of devices. The unit is a little wider, but much slimmer than the Centro, it’s 175 MB for user), 32 MB SDRAM and Windows Mobile Pro 6.1.

The Codename for this unit was “Skywriter”

Anyways, here are the full specs:

  • 14 mm in thickness, width 60 mm and length 113 mm
  • GSM, EDGE and UMTS HSDPA 3.6
  • assisted-GPS receiver
  • Wi-FI b/g
  • 320*320 screen, touch panel
  • micro-SD slot under the battery
  • 2 MP camera
  • 1500 mAh battery
  • a micro-USB connector for both power and sync
  • bluetooth 2.0 EDR + A2DP, 256 MB NAND-Flash (> 175 MB for user), 32 MB SDRAM
  • Windows Mobile Pro 6.1.

I am especially happy to hear that Palm finally managed to give the Treo 850 WiFi and a MiniUSB port – farewell, Athena Connector. While this may be annoying for all who currently own such devices; people who travel a lot and carry many gadgets will be happy to hear that they now need one charger/cable less.

As for the rest – nothing too interesting here. Enjoy!

  1. Does it only have 32 MB SDRAM free after booting, (meaning it only has 64 MB SDRAM)?

    Can you confirm this?

  2. Hi surur,
    sorry – thats all the info I have. my source was not willing to give more…

  3. Do confirm the 32MB of RAM. It’ll be a deal-breaker when most HTC devices are now shipped with 128MB RAM, WinMob being a memory hog and all.

  4. I’m not familiar with WM, but does the >175MB Nand-Flash and 32MB SD-Ram means that >175MB is for installing user programs like a HD, which doesn’t free after a reset, and 32 SD-Ram for running these programs and holding runtime data? How can I compare this with other brands who only mention one RAM type, and some only 128MB. Can I say that the Treo has >200MB RAM (>175MB + 32MB) for the user?

  5. Tx for the info. Do you know if they will have unlock versions?

  6. gah, micro SD /under/ the battery? WTF? What if I want to stick the card in a computer or pop in another card? Not being able to access the card while the phone is on is retarded.

    Palm dropped the ball yet *again*…

  7. I would like to know if it will have a SIM card and since its GSM edge technology that will most likely limit users to AT&T ???? next its a palm phone but using windows do they have a palm version ?????? lastly the assisted GPS do I have to buy something for it to work, and why is it assisted unless its assisting me ??? ok I will be looking 4 the answers

  8. Do we have any idea when we might expect this to be out? I am ready to purchase a 755, but will wait if something new is close to production time. I really appreciate the info you gave!

  9. Hi,
    sorry, no idea on when this will drop.

    However, I am 100% sure that it will NOT run PalmOs – so if you like Palm OS, the 755 will definitely serve you better!

  10. Well that certainly is a help, then–I am on a mac so I need PalmOS, not Windows. Thank you for taking the time to reply.

  11. Hi DeLynn,
    my partner Mark/Space offers sync solutions for Windows Mobile, too – the Missing Sync banner is right on the right-hand side!

    No need to constrain yourself anymore…

  12. Oh great. Now I have to think about it more! :)

    Is the Palm/Windows discussion like the Mac/Windows discussion–people know what they like and argue their point?

    IOW–why should I get Palm over Windows or vice versa?

    I do know Windows a bit better–I had a Dell Axim when they first came out–but I don’t think that necessarily makes much of a difference.

    I’d love to hear any thoughts!

    Thank you for your info–I didn’t know I had this option!

  13. Hi DeLynn,
    hmm – the question Palm or Windows Mobile is an age-old one that IMHO can not be answered except for yourself. Go to a shop and try both a PalmOS Treo and a Windows Mobile device…

    If you had an Axim before and liked the handling, you could prolly get along well with one of the HTC or HP phones…Palm Os indeed IS different from Windows Mobile handling-wise!

    Best regards from Vienna and good luck

  15. I hope 850 has Palm OS and not windows. I want to be able to use qmovilsoft’s product callrec. It does not work with windows OS

  16. i hope that it has MMS, unlike the 800w. Palm was stupid to get rid of that.

  17. Hi,
    I am sorry, but I probably have to disappoint both of you. Palm OS definitely isnt on the 850/Pro…as for MMS, we’ll find that out soon!

    All the best

  18. Hi,

    Would somebody please feed me the info about this Palm 850 battery cover. Does this Palm 850 battery cover easy to remove and reassemble?

  19. Hi anonymous,
    sorry. But as we are based in Austria, we can not get a Treo 800w.

    However, I have to say that I didn’t hear any horror stories as of now!

    All the best
