Verizon Treo 755p in September?
Rumor: We reported previously on the Verizon 755p suffering a minor delay to its initial launch time. Now a supposed screenshot from Verizon's internal release roadmap shows that the newest CDMA Treo has suffered another setback and will not launch until September 4th, 2007.
The authentic-looking image (read on to view) was posted to the Howard Chui Forums' Verizon thread from a poster who appears to be a Verizon Wireless employee. There is no sign on this latest device roadmap surrounding the rumored Windows Mobile-powered Treo 800w.
Previous reports have also indicated that the Verizon version of the 755p may include EVDO Rev. A, which would coincide with the recent news of Verizon completing their EVDO network upgrade, but the usual technical limitations of OS Garnet would make this appear fairly unlikely.
In all likelihood, Verizon's usual stringest handset testing and approval process is the likely culprit for the delay. Verizon also may want to wait until the back to school shopping season and/or until some of the furor surrounding the iPhone launch has subsided.
