According to training materials leaked on the Web, the Palm Treo 800w is powered by a 333MHz processor (specific make unknown) and weighs just under 5-ounces. The data port will also be a standard microUSB port, not the Palm docking port that so many users have complained about for years (and years and years).
The documents also confirm that the 800w will be released by Sprint on July 13, as expected. Find out more about the Palm Treo 800w…
Yahoo has released the third version of its Yahoo! Go software for Windows Mobile (which is still in BETA), and if you’re a Windows Mobile user who has a Yahoo email account, this free software is certainly worth a look.
The Yahoo! Go software provides access to Yahoo email as well as news, sports, weather, Flickr, maps and directions, Yahoo oneSearch, and the ability to augment the software with widgets.

Too bad there isn’t a similar application for Google’s suite of online offerings.
Could Windows Mobile soon see an included, over-the-air backup solution? The recently announced acquisition of a Portuguese company, MobiComp, by Microsoft suggests that the software giant is interested in just that. MobiComp offers a mobile backup solution in Portugal for cell phones which wirelessly backs-up contact, calendar and other cell phone information; a second service called MobileKeeper allows you to share photos and other content from popular sites such as Flickr and Facebook.
We hope this is a move toward a more Cloud-friendly setup for Windows Mobile, something we’re very much in favor of.
T-Mobile has a new Windows Mobile Smartphone on the horizon – the Shadow II (seen below in a user photo), which will replace, presumably, the current T-Mobile Shadow. The T-Mobile Shadow II will run Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard (non-touchscreen) and may be the first Windows Mobile handset from T-Mobile to work with that company’s HotSpot@Home Wi-Fi VoIP service.
The HTC Touch Diamond promises more than any Windows Mobile handheld in years, so there’s understandably a great deal of interest in this cutting-edge WinMo device. An AT&T-branded version of the Touch Diamond won’t arrive for a few months yet, but if you’re really hankerin’ for some Diamond action in Q2, check out eBay. There are more than a few Touch Diamond handsets for sale on eBay, and most are brand new. These handsets are unlocked and will work with any GSM carrier like AT&T or T-Mobile.
