    Seems to be quite a bit of debate as to whether Palm will be releasing a WM6 update for the 750's. I dont understand why, because thy have already officially announced that they will - but I cant find any reference to this announcement on these forums so it must have slipped under the radar


    Olivier Rozay, Palm's country manager for Australia and New Zealand, confirmed that Palm will release an upgrade to bump the Treo750 up to Windows Mobile 6, although he wouldn't be drawn on a date.

    later models would include the same HSDPA upgrade already slated for their overseas cousins, and we'd put even money that they will also include Windows Mobile 6 out of the box.

    APC Magazine is probably the best & biggest IT magazine this side of the globe folks and its not just some spokesperson making the announcement its the regional manager

    The only question in my mind is - When and Who (Cingular?) will get these upgrades? New customers/current customers...etc..

    No, they haven't. I have seen that "statement" you are referring to several times and in multiple places. Based on the exact statement, it is unclear as to whether an upgrade means a software patch for existing owners or updating the current 750 with WM6 to be sold as a new device.

    To add salt to the wound, Palm's history of providing updates has been pretty poor. But alas, hope still exists.

    If Palm did offer a free upgrade to WM6 for existing owners who'd cover the license fee, I'm sure MS aren't going to be handing them out for nothing

    Actually Microsoft has already announced they will be handing out the licenses to phone manufacturers for free.

    This has actually been disputed by Brighthand. It's an inaccurate report that has been spread on the net.
