File this one under "rumor" and a very hopeful one at that but Cens.com (a Taiwanese news economic news site) is reporting that fellow ODM partner HTC is working on a CDMA version of the Treo Pro for Verizon and/or Sprint:
Furthermore, Palm is planning to launch CDMA (code division multiple access) version of Treo Pro series phone in the future for CDMA telecom service providers, like Verizon, Wireless and Sprint. The phone will also be supplied by HTC.
There has been some other rumor-mongering that Verizon has canceled their planned roll out of their Treo 800w. Reasons are murky ranging from "it could not pass carrier testing" to, you guessed it, they are awaiting the Treo Pro.
Perhaps. Though without any real evidence we'll just have to sit back and see what happens.
Though considering the general warm welcome the Treo Pro has received so far, it would appear to be a good idea to get a CDMA version out ASAP.
