Comments on: Leaked Info on AT&T Treo 750 and 680 ROM Updates

A leaked AT&T presentation has been posted in the TreoCentral forums. The document appears to be an internal briefing on the upcoming Palm ROM updates for the Treo 750 and Treo 680. The plan details the procedure for the imminent Windows Mobile 6 upgrade for the Treo 750, and a comprehensive OS update for the Treo 680 as well.

The document basically confirms the flurry of WM6 update rumors that have circled the 750 since its release in 2006. As expected, the WM6 update will be free and will also be pre-installed on new 750s supposedly beginning this month. The HSDPA 1.8 upgrade will be contained within the update as well “improved phone controls” and new AT&T Entertainment applications (CV, AT&T Mall, AT&T Music). The AT&T promotional materials do specify an October 15th date which has unfortunately come and passed but hopefully the delay will not be as long as what Treo 700p owners were plagued with throughout 2006 and 2007.

I have an unbranded Treo 750 and still waiting for my update, while our European friends with a Vodafone Palm Treo 750v have already received theirs a couple of moths ago.

I guess this AT&T ROM Update (which had been floating around on the black market for quit a while) doesn't simply mean the unlocked Treo 750 devices will get their upgrade too.

How is that being delivered? Through a new OS feature or some 2nd/3rd party program?

And will it come to unlocked 680s?

Unlocked phones?

I paid extra to get an unlocked 680. Where the hell is my ROM update? I'm still not caught up with the current AT&T ROM. I'm fed up with Palm

Peace Out

If you have an unlocked phone and don't use AT&T, the PTT feature would be useless for you. The other features will probably be made available by Palm when the people at AT&T finally release the patch.

A big part of the delay may be caused by Windows Vista. Think about it, since you need to patch from a PC, if the OS can cause things to break, AT&T really would be better off delaying the release until the patch/update process causes fewer problems than they solve.
