palmOne Treo 650To round out a healthy dose of phone news today The Register is reporting that volume shipments of the Treo 650 have been sent to PalmOne. The successor to the popular Treo 600 Palm-based smartphone is due to arrive as soon as October:

Details of the Treo 650 – codenamed ‘Ace’ – first emerged last June as a short set of specifications. Photos of the device, with its backlit keypad and new key layout, appeared on the web in August.
The handset is expected to contain a 312MHz ARM-based CPU, up from the 600’s 144MHz processor, and an unchanged 32MB of memory. The display’s horizontal and vertical resolutions have been doubled to 320 x 320, and the handset’s integrated digicam is now a 1.2 megapixel job with digital zoom and an adjacent mirror to help users take self-portraits. The 650 brings Bluetooth to the Treo line.
