No one knows why Verizon has waited more than six months after Sprint to introduce the Palm Treo 755p, and even now the telecom isn’t saying when its version of this smartphone will debut. Still, there’s new evidence this will happen in the near future.
There have been numerous rumors giving possible release dates for this device, but so far all of these have turned out to be inaccurate.
The best information available now comes directly from Verizon, who has recently posted a page dedicated to the 755p on its web site. This includes a form to allow people who are interested in this smartphone to be notified when it is released.
At this point, it seems likely Verizon intends to have the 755p on the market before the end of the holiday shopping season.

The Treo 755p is one of Palm’s previous generation of smartphones. It has a slimmer profile than earlier Treos, but isn’t as small as the latest models. Naturally, it includes a 320-by-320-pixel display and a QWERTY keyboard.
It runs the Garnet OS (formerly Palm OS Garnet), has about 64 MB of internal storage available to users, and a miniSD slot.
It was created for CDMA carriers, and offers support for the 3G cellular-wireless networking standard EV-DO.
