GSM Treo Coming to Europe

Palm today announced it has forged a new relationship with Vodafone targeted at expanding the adoption of wireless push email in Europe.

The Palm(R) Treo(TM) smartphone that will result from this collaboration will represent an industry first by operating on Vodafone’s 3G/UMTS network and delivering the hallmark Palm experience on top of the Microsoft Windows Mobile(R) operating system. The new Treo smartphone will be available first to Vodafone customers in multiple European countries, including the UK, Germany, Spain, Italy and Netherlands, before the end of the calendar year.

This is long overdue for our friends in Europe who have eagerly been awaiting such an announcement. The full press release can be seen here:

We can only surmise that the Treo released in Europe will be one of the two we reported on last week.
