Palm Says 700p Update Still on Track
Paul Loefler, Palm's usual public face in all matters related to the 700p ROM update, has made a small post to the Palm blog. Mr. Loefler briefly states that the 700p's long-awaited update is still on track for release during the week of May 28th.
With the recent announcement and widespread retail availability of the new Treo 755p, Palm can now focus on resolving the 700p's myriad of issues and properly EOLing the device. While Sprint has replaced the Treo 700p with the new 755p, Verizon, Alltel and other CDMA carriers are still stocking and selling the 700p with no announced plans to move to the 755p for the immediate future.
May 28th is actually the Memorial Dat holiday in the United States, so it seems likely that Palm will not release the update on the actual day of the 28th but will perhaps release it later in the week.
