Verizon Posts Treo 755p Teaser Page

Verizon Treo 755p GreenPalm OS users on Verizon are still eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Treo 755p on their carrier a full six months after the device's release on Sprint. Verizon has now posted a bit of additional information on top of their official October press release for the 755p on their B2B teaser site, offering a "Coming Soon!" headline here and the first pictures of the device in its new teal/green color scheme for Verizon. The exact definition of Verizon's "soon" is up in their air but it is still not outside the realm of possibility for a release to still occur before the end of this month.

While the older November 1st rumor has come and gone, the latest reports from VZW corporate store employees (also what I was told last week) suggests November 28th as the release date. In direct contradiction to this, a poster to the Howard Chui forums claiming to be a Verizon corporate employee suggests that the phones are still two months away from a retail release.

The Treo 755p is available for purchase now on Sprint, Alltel, and Telus CDMA networks. Palm has not yet updated their 755p page to reflect the forthcoming availability on Verizon's network.

Is this exciting?

No kidding.

I imagine it is especially exciting, for those still stuck with the 700p on Verizon...

It sure took Verizon long enough to "test" (cripple) the 755 in order to get it ready for market. 6 months or so ?

Oh come on now, you just KNOW that when they finally come out with they will have perfected it.

How the hell is this any different than the 700p aside from no antenna and lacking the full sized SD card slot?

Treos not in local Verizon Store

hgoldner @ 11/23/2007 11:24:05 PM # Q
I dropped by a local Verizon Wireless store today and noted two things (which were different than when I dropped by last week).

1. At least two sales representatives agreed the 755P would be out before the holidays; and
2. There were NO Treos on display any longer.

Is it me or does VZW move out new phones at a snails pace? That is unless they have some kind of exclusive release, where they seem to put the energy to it? Or did Sprint have an exclusive period?

IMO, VZW represents the absolute worst control, cripple, & inflexibility issues that make us all dream of more European like wireless world. Just an observation.

Verizon Wireless is a ginormous corporation which is bogged down by a corporate mentality which means it will never be 'nimble.' Phones on its network must strictly comply with its own requirements which were created by the same geniuses who gave us camels when they meant to create racehorses.

VW will eventually have to figure out a way to compete one Google comes online with its open source phones, but once it does --- and it will, it certainly has the network to continue to be a big player.

In the mean time, those of us who have already endured the indignity of whatever AT&T is called this week (I've used cellular phones since my local service was called 'Metrophone' in the Philadelphia area....more than seventeen years ago), and need to be able to connect reliably (ruling out Sprint), will stick to the network that works --- at whatever pace its phones come out.

Metrophone -> CellularOne -> Cingular -> AT&T? Yep, I've been there every step of the way in Philadelphia as well. You're not alone.

All I Really Care About...

CADJedi @ 11/25/2007 12:30:44 AM # Q
All I really care about at this point is what my Palm TX replacement is gonna be... but I can tell you one thing, its not going to be a Treo (or Centro).

At this point, I'm really just interested in news about a new Palm PDA or what I am going to switch to... will it be an Apple iTouch... or a Nokia N810... or who knows what.

I would like to see a lot more PIC news on possible Palm PDA alternatives and how they compare to Palm and how we can make the switch.

I'm just waiting for the next device I can get excited about. So far its the n810 plus GarnetVM

Though he tries to hide it as much as possible, there're PalmInfocenter sister sites or two that probably do what you want.

Your task as a OIC reader is to find the hidden links on the PIC home page!

The treo 755p may keep some verizon users from abandoning the treo but not all. I am looking to replace my T X and consolidate. Since I am a physician, having a phone and medical software at my fingertips is very important (rather than juggling pager, pda, phone). But given Palm's lack of momentum and current problems I am looking at the Blackberry Pearl. Palm used to own the medical application market then lost ground to Windows mobile. But Blackberry has now developed a respectable suite of applications. I only need two real application- epocrates and sanfordguide- both of which are on the blackberry now.
The medical market may not be huge now but physicians tend to buy what their peers are buying and I'm not seeing as many Treos out there. As hospitals and offices switch to electronic medical records, smart phones are going to be more important and may be purchased in larger numbers. My hospital IT has never wanted to support palms (our versamail/outlook solution is a kludge) and this may tip the balance in blackberry's favor. I can't believe how Palm squandered its lead in the market! I've had years of palm from the IIIx and dreading the change.

TOO LATE ! ! !

I've already had to switch to AT&T to get the Treo 680.
I would rather have Verizon service now after having used both.
I hope that the few glitches in the 680 are fixed in the 755p.
However I love my Treo and can't understand why the Treo market isn't exploding with increasing users.
Having tried the Blackberry, I have found that the Treo is infinitely better.

PALM just warned

SeldomVisitor @ 12/6/2007 5:50:35 PM # Q
They used an excuse that there was a delay in getting a product certified by as carrier.

Can we guess what product?

[btw - it appears those Centros that are being sold now without rebates are directly affecting PALM's margins in a significant way - I could be wrong about that but the warning contains related words]

They're going Ga-Ga over on Engadget about this

The comments pretty much sum it up:

For real now.

The Internet excitement for this is ... uh ... well ... nevermind!
