When Palm, Inc. and AT&T announced this spring that an operating system upgrade for the Treo 750 will be released, no one expected that users of this device would still be waiting for it nearly eight months later.
A new post on The Official Palm Blog says "Our commercial launch of the WinMo 6 update for those already using the AT&T Treo 750 is just around the corner," but gives no specifics.
According to unconfirmed reports, a few weeks ago the operating system upgrade got within a day or so of release before a bug was discovered that delayed its introduction.
Palm’s blog post goes on to say that its B2B channels are starting to take orders from companies that want to buy multiple units of the Treo 750 with Windows Mobile 6 Professional pre-installed. However, this is is not yet an option for individuals who want a single unit.
AT&T users waiting for the Windows Mobile 6 Professional upgrade can at least take heart from the fact that it will be available free of charge.
What’s Going to Change?
Some of the enhancements in Windows Mobile 6 include the ability to display HTML-formatted email and an improved Calendar with Day-at-a-Glance bar. It also sports improved versions of the Mobile Office applications, bringing them closer to their desktop equivalents.
In addition, Microsoft has fine tuned the look of the operating system.
