CDMA Treo Pro Also on the Way?
Palm is planning to launch CDMA (code division multiple access) version of Treo Pro series phone in the future for CDMA telecom service providers, like Verizon, Wireless and Sprint. The phone will also be supplied by HTC.
If indeed true, it would mark a return to dual CDMA/GSM versions of the same handset design for Palm. In the past Palm made both cellular flavors available for the Treo 270/300, 600 and 650, but moved away from this practice with some of its more recent smartphones.
It's worth mentioning that this is a completely unconfirmed rumor at this time. The Cens.com website only cites "company sources" and the article is rife with spelling errors and grammatical mistakes.
A report last week from Digitimes about Palm's new ODM relationship with HTC did not mention the possibility of a CDMA version. Palm itself isn't commenting on the possibility of a CDMA Treo Pro release.
WMExperts is also reporting that there has also been some unconfirmed speculation that in the US Verizon Wireless will actually pass over on the Treo 800w, in favor of holding out for the CDMA Treo Pro.
Thanks to WMExperts for the tip.
