Microsoft Confirms Sprint Will Be Carrier For New Windows Mobile Treo

Microsoft today announced the official release of Windows Mobile 6.1. That in itself is big news, but perhaps bigger news for Treo enthusiasts lies in the
official confirmation that Sprint will be the carrier of the new Palm Treo. It’s also confirmed that the new Treo will feature Windows Mobile 6.1. The browser alone will offer a significant improvement over it’s predecessor, serving up webpages similar to those found on your desktop browser.

Update:Sprint has issued a press release that also confirms this news. The press release reads, “In addition, all of Sprint’s new Windows Mobile smartphones launching in the second half of 2008 will offer Windows Mobile 6.1 software, including a new Palm Treo launching later this year. Additional details will be announced upon commercial availability.”

Sprint Treo 800w

In the release from Microsoft, the list of devices and carriers getting the new update and reads, “Sprint: A new Palm Treo….” Still no confirmation on the July release date for the Treo 800w, but
when it does arrive, expect it on Sprint Wireless and to features Windows Mobile 6.1. Surprisingly, the Palm Treo 750 was not on the list of devices to receive the update, nor was the Treo 700w/wx.
