Quick Verizon Treo 650 Updates

While there's still no official word as to when (or if) Verizon will release their own Treo 650 some sources claim that an early April release is likely.  At any rate, Verizon will hold a press conference on the 14th of March at the coming CTIA show in New Orleans and it is anticipated (more 'hoped' than anything else) that they will make their Treo plans known then.

In the meantime, Techdirt reports that "while Verizon Wireless has been aggressively rolling out their EV-DO 3G service, one spot that is noticeably absent from rollout plans has been the San Francisco Bay Area. This struck some as odd, since Silicon Valley would be an obvious early adopter area. The problem, though (which Verizon won't admit publicly, of course) is that they just don't have the spectrum to do it. That might be changing. MetroPCS, who does have the spectrum, has agreed to sell a bunch of its Bay Area spectrum to Verizon Wireless for $230 million and a nationwide roaming agreement. So, for folks in the Bay Area waiting for EV-DO from Verizon Wireless, be happy."

Although again we won't know for sure until the official Verizon release, the Treo 650 should fully support EV-DO connectivity which some are claiming is the fastest wireless data network available in the US (however Cingular's EDGE reportedly has the widest coverage) and costs $45 for unlimited data access.

I heard from a Verizon Wireless store employee that they were going to have the Treo 650 "coming in May...". I hope she was right!

the customer service reps seem to know something but are fairly tight lipped about it. They always encourage waiting for new equipment to come out.

Ho Ho! On the verizon site, a 'coming soon' has been posted for the 650. And I quote 'it will soon be certified' Is there hope?
