Possibly one of the worst kept secrets in the smartphone market is the existence of the Treo 755p, which is supposed to be the next CDMA smartphone from Palm, Inc.
There have been numerous unconfirmed reports on this device, the latest of which is a leaked listing of Sprint products in the pipe-line. This shows the 755p will be available in either blue or burgundy casings.
It also confirms that this smartphone is expected to debut next month. Earlier reports said it will be available May 14.

The Sprint link, however, is still lacking one significant piece of information: a price.
What Little We Know
Information on the Treo 755p is very sketchy at this point. Virtually all that is known is that this smartphone will run the Garnet OS (formerly Palm OS Garnet) and will offer support for the 3G cellular-wireless networking standard EV-DO.
As leaked images show, this model won’t have an antenna, and it will have the same general form factor as the Treo 750 and Treo 680, models that are slimmer than earlier Palm smartphones. Of course, both of these are GSM devices, while the 755p will reportedly run on CDMA networks.
This device is expected to replace the Treo 700p.
As mentioned earlier, Treo 755p reportedly has a target release date of May 14, and it will initially be offered by Sprint. It is not known at this point if and when if it will be available from other CDMA carriers, such as Verizon.
