Rumors have been flying for a while about the upcoming successor to the palmOne Treo 600 – the “Ace”, which we now know is called the Treo 650. Now, the first photos of the new device have become available:

Other improvements noted over at Engadget seem to include a removeable battery, mirror for taking self-portraits, recessed SD slot, and possible push-to-talk (PTT) functionality.
