Sprint Roadmap Shows July Release for Treo 800w

An allegedly leaked Sprint roadmap that shows the Treo 800w scheduled
for a July release. Normally, we’d chalk this up to some creative Photoshop work, but it has since been removed from the original source on the SprintUsers forum lending to it’s credibility.

During a recent conference call to discuss Palm’s fiscal results, many of the questions were related to the release of the next generation Treo. While confirming that an enterprise, Windows Mobile based Treo is in the works, Palm CEO Ed Colligan would only say, "Those products aren’t coming out this quarter", referring to the companies 3rd fiscal quarter. That quarter ends on June 30th, again making a July release for the Treo 800w to appear more and more likely.

Treo 800w Specifications

The roadmap lists the following as features of the upcoming Treo 800w. No official word from Palm or Sprint, so these could change once the product is officially announced.

  • Replaces 700w
  • WM 6.0
  • EvDO Rev A
  • WiFi
  • Autonomous GPS
  • Camera & Non-camera versions

Many are speculating that Microsoft will announce Windows Mobile 6.1 on April 1st. If true, than it’s certainly likely that Windows Mobile 6.1 will ship on the Treo 800w when it is released.
