    I happened to be running a speed test (DSL Reports) on my PC and decided to check today's results and I came across this:

    209 0.462s (200k) mycingular.net Palm750/v0000 Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 4.01; Windows CE; PPC; 240x320) UP.Link/6.3.0.0.0

    Someone, obviously, ran a 200k speed test on the device and registered a speed of 209 kbps. I've attached the link to the page below for your viewing pleasure. The 750 from Cingular shows up several times with speeds all in the 200kbps range. If my analysis is correct, I think it's safe to say the the device itself is on the way but my question is when will Cingular's HSDPA network "really" be ready.

    That's interesting. Does anyone know why some of the results (not just the 750) show a resolution of 240x320? I thought it was 240x240 for WM5 Treos.
    Treo 600 > Treo 650 > Treo 700p > Treo 700wx -> Mogul -> Touch Pro

    My guess would be that is something that is just hard coded into PIE. The browser supports that resolution but it's not really bothering to report what size it's really running under.
    Main Phone: Treo 270/600/650/700w/700p/750v/Motorola Q/iPhone
    Tried but sold: Motorola Q/Nokia E61/700wx/HTC TyTN/Treo 680

    750 isnt going to be 320x240. Based on that it would more likely be an 8525. Another thing to note is that 209 is withing the theoretical maximum of EDGE (384kbps). So it doesn't even need to be a UMTS device. BTW 209kb is low for UMTS, so I hope it isnt a 3G Treo.


    EDIT. I just saw the Treo 750 part. I'm still skeptical it is one though.

    That could easily be the user agent string of the 750. The 700w has almost the same string with the erroneous resolution. This is PIE's fault.

    Most likely to be the Vodafone 750 as it is launched Sept 12, bound to be a few out there.

    Even less likely in my opinion. Europe operates its UMTS on 2100MHz and Cingular uses 850/1900MHz. Do you really think Palm would be smart enough to include tri-band UMTS? I could be wrong...

    In liue of resent facts being brought to light, I stand corrected. Nice find... Still crappy for 3G though.
