Sister-site TreoCentral uncovered some training slides for Palm CS reps that reveals an unexpected boon: the Treo 700wx on Verizon will be getting a free update to Windows Mobile 6 in the coming months. Nice.
Now for the “weird stuff.”
- There's no mention of a Sprint update (probably because they'll be wanting you to buy a Treo 800w instead, eh?)
- Windows Mobile 6.1 updates have started coming out and Palm is just now getting to Windows Mobile 6? What?
- It won't work on the Treo 700w (actually, that's not so weird, given the 700w's anemic memory problems)
Still and all, it's nice to see the old dog learn a few new tricks. We don't have any clearer release date than the one you see there in the title, but we're going to go out on a limb and say this means that Verizon lovers are going to have to wait for a period of exclusivity to end before they get their hands on the 800w. Meanwhile, you have some quality updates to the Treo to stick around for.
