The web site reads: Ten Years. One Vision. Celebrate Palm’s 10th anniversary with this special bundle, including the Black Tie Edition of the Treo(tm) 650 smartphone plus two great accessories: the sleek Palm Hard Case and Stylus Pen.

Should this motivate you to get on the ‘Treo Bandwagon?’ Read on for more info. According to the web site – this is what we get with this ‘Black tie’ edition:

Treo 650 smartphone – Black Tie Edition

Get the award-winning, powerful features you expect from a Treo smartphone, with a sharp, new look worthy of our tenth anniversary celebration. The polished chrome framework shines against an elegant black backdrop with a soft-touch finish that feels comfortable in your hand. This ‘unlocked’ GSM Treo(tm) 650 smartphone works with almost any GSM/GPRS network worldwide, so you can use it with your existing GSM/GPRS service plan.

The Treo 650 smartphone simplifies your life by combining a compact mobile phone with email, an organizer, messaging, and web access1. There’s also Bluetooth(r) technology so you can connect wirelessly to other Bluetooth devices. Not to mention an MP3 player2, a digital camera that captures video, and a vibrant color screen that brings everything to life.

Palm Hard Case and Stylus Pen

Complete the look and protect your smartphone with a strong yet stylish case. The Palm Hard Case features a removable metal belt clip that attaches to the durable exterior. Inside, a soft lining cushions your smartphone. Also included is an always-handy stylus with built-in pen.

There is no word as to whether CDMA networks will be getting this new edition of the treo. The only price showing is a hefty $599 for the unlocked GSM version. Let’s see if this Treo makes its way into the stores as an ‘upgrade’ for existing users with banged up Treos looking for a ‘fresher’ packaging.
