Verizon Treo 755p Launch On Monday?

Following the “Coming Soon” teaser page for the Treo 755p that Verizon Treo 755pVerizon put up back in November, Treonauts with this carrier who have been stuck for ages with the bulky Treo 700p are about to receive some very good news as they will apparently very, very shortly (most likely this coming Monday) finally be able to get their hands on their very own Verizon Treo 755p pictured here on the right.

The CDMA Verizon Treo 755p will offer built-in Microsoft Direct Push Technology email support, bundled Google Maps for mobile and the latest Treo design with integrated antenna and a much slimmer form factor compared to the Treo 700p as well as a mini-SD memory card slot. 

Verizon follows Sprint as the second carrier selling the next-generation Treo 755p which will likely become available for less than $300 with a two-year service agreement.

Without a doubt the best part of Verizon’s CDMA network is that it will offer the new Treo 755p quick, wireless access to web, email, business, multimedia applications and instant messaging (IM for AIM, Yahoo! and MSN) with broadband-like speeds of 300–600kbps.

Additionally, a unique Treo 755p distinction is a larger capacity Treo battery of 1600mAh compared to the Treo 680/750’s 1200mAh and only 200mAh less than the standard Treo 700p battery – all the while reducing the weight to 5.64 ounces.

Verizon Treonauts have really been stuck in limbo for too long (18 months without a new PalmOS smartphone release) and I hope that many will finally be able to experience having their very own lighter, slimmer and antenna-less Treo 755p in their pocket – it’s certainly made a huge difference for me.

Actually, Verizon makes the 3rd carrier with the 755, after Sprint and Alltel.

And I was just about to go to Alltel this weekend because no Verizon rep. (on-line or in person)could give me ANY info!

Too late for me. My 700p was a dog and I needed a new phone so I moved on to the Pearl and its converted me. That's what happens when you drag your feet Palm. It was a great run though.

HA! Verizon just sent me a brand new...I'm sorry, referbished...650, to replace the 650 I have had for the past 2 1/2 years with them. The reps couldn't tell me that they were about to start selling the 755 and try to get me to BUY a new 755, instead of sending me a free 650? And I was well out of the waranty period...if I had one to begin with! They have been hounding me for months, trying to get me to resign a new service contract with them, and this was their perfect chance! But I like being a free agent now, able to explore my options outside of Palm, especially when Verizon were dragging their feet picking up new Treos...and does this effectively take them out of the running for the Centro for another several months?

Oh well, I stuck with my 650 for almost 3 years....I'll ride this replacement until the wheels fall off of this one as well....maybe by then there will be a serious Treo upgrade (new hardware with new OS)

It's true; I just ordered it from *611. It was $300 after $100 credit for data plan and $50 mail in rebate. I will have it in my hands on Tuesday!!!

I don't understand the lamenting about the 18 month lag between new model introductions. Let's think about this here. To be able to actually afford a new Treo most people have to sign a 2 year service contract. With that contract you aren't eligible for the new every two discount for 22 months. That's four months longer than the 18 month wait from the 700p's release to the 755p's release. Then taking into account people who couldn't upgrade to the 700p right away (people like me) because they weren't into their new every two period yet and I bet that there are actually very few customers poised to jump on the new device at its launch. There will be those still holding onto their 650's for whom it'll be a great upgrade, but the majority of 700p owners will be stuck on their 700p for at least the next four months. Personally, when my contract comes up for renewal and new every two discount eligibility I'll be seriously evaluating the iPhone which by then will have third party apps. I'm going to have to walk away from a substantial investment in Palm OS software, but since much of that was for titles that the iPhone comes with standard (a good mail client, for example) I think I'll be able to justify it. If Palm doesn't come out with something really good within the next year, and get it released with Verizon, its likely I'll be going to AT&T for the iPhone.

Question re:"broadband-like speeds of 300–600kbps" Sounds like EVDO rev-0, rather than EVDO rev-A, which is faster and for which Verizon network has upgraded to. Can any one confirm this? My current 700p has never performed more than 400 max and is mostly below that when used tethered to my laptop.

by Will Spent | Dec 17, 2007 9:44:15 AM

It's selling for $400. $400 for this? -at the same price as the iphone?

by ilabelu | Dec 17, 2007 3:57:00 PM

over the weekend, i happened to compare the specs of the 700p (of which i own) and the 755p. THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE, unless you consider the width and weight a change.

i don't see this as an upgrade. i agree, there should be a gps chip included. every other cell phone is gps capable. you would think a smartphone would be smart with a gps chip too.

palm needs to get with the times. i love my 700p, but would like something more stable and with a better internet browser that works like broadband, not dsl or dial up.

by Doug Boehme | Dec 17, 2007 6:13:56 PM

The form factor difference and keyboard between the 650 and the 680 was worth the switch to me. Isn't going from the 700 to 755 a similar move? Obviously I got more memory when I went to the 680 but it's also much slower.
