Comments on: Another Possible Verizon Treo 755p Release Date

Palm OS fans on Verizon Wireless are, as of this writing, still having to make do with the aging Treo 700p. Both the Treo 755p and Centro remain no-shows on the Verizon network, despite persistent rumors to the contrary regarding the former. However, several hints have recently appeared to indicate that a Verizon 755p release is imminent. The earliest cause for optimism appeared back in September when a Verizon release roadmap was leaked. The documents indicated that the 755p's release date was to occur at some unspecified date in November. Just recently Verizon made a semi-announcement in October via a press release from that stated the 755p was indeed an upcoming device. However, no additional specifications, pricing information or release date was given at the time.

You never know with Verizon Wireless but....

Verizon has been releasing phones for 'pre-order' each of the last successive Tuesdays with the new phones available the following Thursday. The phones released so far have all been on the original "Verizon Product Release" which boy genius released to either Engadget or Phonescoop or perhaps even to PIC.

It is completely consistent for the 755P to be announced on the 20th ---- and I really hope so, 'cause suddenly my needs have changed and I have to migrate from my T|X to a smartphone and the 755p will fit the bill just fine and dandy.

The honorable thing

bbtkd @ 11/11/2007 8:46:45 AM # Q
The honorable thing would be for Palm/Verizon/Sprint to admit to the Keystone Cop-like series of misadventures which have left 700P owners clutching devices with severe problems either caused by the patches or caused by the fear of bricking their phones with the notorious patches. In admitting to their misadventure, they could "throw us a bone" in the form of a $100 upgrade to the 755P.

I have a year left on my contract and have had some of the common issues, but have held off on patching due to the horror stories. I had hoped that the Linux phone would be out and solid by the time I am up for a new phone, but I now doubt it. Given their past methodology, I have to suspect that when Google comes out with a Linux phone it will have an option to emulate the calendar and other familiar Palm apps and provide a conversion process. In the next 18 months I will go to a Linux phone one way or another. I'm fed up with the non-multitasking Palm Treos where the PDA does not work when the phone trumps the PDA because of marginal signal. Still - if Verizon threw me a $100 bone in the form of a 755P, I'd take it and I'd be more likely to stay the Treo course. Are you listening Palm?

I'd love to know the final color and price point they settled on -and what kind of rebate(s) if any will be available -from Verizon and/or Palm.

At least I've had my new-every-two $100 discount for months and it's burning a hole in my pocket...

Product Specification Sheet

I was at a Verizon Store earlier this week and they gave me a 755p product specification sheet. So the 755p release must be very close...
