3 adds new handsets to X-Series range

3’s X-Series range expands with additional handsets perfect for personal or business use.

Following the launch of the X-Series in March, 3 today announced three further X-Series enabled handsets -the Palm Treo 750, DoPod 838Pro and popular Motorola V3xx. The X-Series is a new suite of services that brings the best of the internet to the mobile phone for a flat monthly fee similar to fixed line broadband. With X-Series, consumers can use their mobile to access services previously reserved for the PC, such as Google and Instant Messengers from ninemsn and Yahoo!7, with generous data allowances allowing easy access to the internet on the mobile.

The HSDPA-enabled Palm Treo 750 has Windows Mobile® 5.0 functionality to make syncing your mobile life with the office seamless. It’s also heavy on functionality and features, with access to Word, Excel and PowerPoint, Mobile Email and Mobile Broadband. It also includes a QWERTY keyboard, touchscreen operation, 1.3 megapixel camera, built-in MP3 player and up to 2GB expandable memory. Being HSDPA enabled means that the Palm Treo is capable of supporting data speeds ranging from 600kbps to 1.5Mbps with a theoretical maximum download speed of 1.8Mbps.

The DoPod 838Pro is as handy as a laptop at the fraction of the size. HSDPA enabled, it is perfect for Mobile Email with a QWERTY keyboard and 2.8” touch screen, this Smartphone with Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 has the capacity to view Word, Excel, PowerPoint and PDF attachments. It also features a two megapixel camera and Windows Media Player.

The slim and sexy MotoRazr V3xx is one of 3’s most popular handsets, with features packed into a super-streamlined design including 1.3 megapixel camera with 8x digital zoom, video calling, MP3 player and modem to access the internet via your laptop. The new Motorola V3xx is also HSDPA capable.

X Series services include Skype*, allowing users to make free calls to other Skype users across the world and Orb, for remotely and securely accessing media files (including photos, music and videos) saved on a home PC. It also includes messaging services from MSN Messenger and Yahoo! Messenger, Mobile Web and Google to easily surf the open Internet and on-the-go access to eBay.

With the expansion of the X-Series range, six handsets now support X-Series – the Motorola V3xx, Nokia N73 and Nokia E65 for personal users; plus the Palm Treo, DoPod 838Pro and DoPod 810 for avid mobile web users. The arrival of the much anticipated Nokia N95 and LG Shine will be announced shortly.
