Palm, Meet Windows



By 2005, PalmOne had become Palm, Inc. again and was focusing increasingly on its smartphone business. The result of these efforts was the Treo 700w, a version that supported Microsoft's Windows Mobile OS for handhelds.

Announced at the January 2006 Consumer Electronics Show, the Treo 700w was generally well received, thanks in part to software tweaks that Palm made on the underlying operating system (a common practice for Windows Mobile device makers).
