    No... and more than likely won't this year. Sorry.

    Although, someone might have or will come out with a "hack" version, if you trust that...

    Theog,
    Custom roms are the backbone of any HTC made device. They allow users to use what works best for them and minimise the amount of garbage they have to adjust after a hard reset, etc.

    I don't doubt you... I'm just one more person with an opinion on the net...

    Bump!

    The more I think about it, if Palm were to work with Micrsoft on this for the Pro, it would buy Palm some time for the short term as Palm focus on the WebOs for the long term.

    With a few more S/W enhancements (software updates, ROM upgrade,etc.) from Palm, it would give the Pro a new lease on life (leash?! Heh.) before the Pro's eventual EOL.

    It would be nice if palm would remember they have the treo pro and update it with WinMob 6.5.

    Due to their focus on the pre, I'm not certain we will see any WM love from Palm anytime soon.

    More than one person (including myself) believe the Palm pro is a couple of steps from being an excellent device.

    Be nice to see a surprise from palm next month!!!!

    Well, and we should not forget sprint... after all, I believe that the 700wx on verizon received the 6.x upgrade, while the sprint version did not. No matter what palm does, it is ultimately up to the carriers...

    The only way you will see WinMo 6.5 on the Treo Pro is from a custom ROM.
    I'm willing to bet $1,000 on it.

    Outside of the Pre and iPhone, official OS upgrades on phones is very rare.
    I think there was an article on WMExperts recently about this.

    WinMo 6.5 would be great on the Treo Pro, but agan, we have to wait for the custom roms.
    I've had a $1,000 bounty out for several months, but no takers. Some chatter over at PPCGeeks, but cmonex has not taken it up (yet).

    mikec, I wouldn't be totally sure about no WMW6.5 on the Treo Pro (officially)

    That doesn't mean I think it will get it either. At this point I'm 50/50 on it and there is complete silence from all back channels right now.

    I mean usually these devices get 1 ROM update. Seeing as WM6.5 won't be out for a few more months, for all we know it could be coming to the Treo Pro (plus there's no Treo Pro 2 yet that we know of).

    I dunno, I'm just waiting on the sidelines: I don't expect it, but wouldn't be surprised either. Sprint has been aggressive on these updates.

    Edit: Also CFay has released a ROM Update Utility (RUU) which is needed for flashing custom ROMs. The unlocker is making progress and something should be happening real soon. WM6.1 custom ROMs will be first and WM6.5 is being work on a well.

    Mal:

    Any idea of whom at Sprint we can contact to make them aware of all the pent-up customer desire for this upgrade?

    Thanks.

    Malatesta, I hope I am wrong, but history says an OS update is unlikely.

    I think we can count on one had the number of devices in which a carrier
    released an OS update.

    Hmm, I dunno. Moto Q9C and Mogul both got WM6.1 as official updates on Sprint, matched the 800w.

    We know HTC is updating Touch Pro 2/Diamond 2/Snap to WM6.5 and I'm very certain Sprint will get that update (for the devices they have)--which is why I think the Treo Pro has a chance.

    Sprint likes to have all their WM OS's on the same page--currently all their devices are 6.1--so it'd be odd to have WM6.5 devices except for the Treo Pro. Unless they are planning on retiring the Treo Pro for the Ace II/Intrepid or unannounced Treo Pro 2?

    That's only 3 devices; not a stellar record over the past several years.

    Once a handset it released, carriers loath making updates - costly, etc. for customer they have already locked in (their mindset, not mine). So it's completely feasible to have multiple OS across devices.

    Updates are rare, and only either at the behest of large customer, or the manufacturer.

    The cooked ROMs on the HTC Touch/Touch Pro showed the world how poorly the "standard" releases from manufacturers/carriers are. It's too bad manufacturers/carriers fight the cooked ROMs instead of embracing them.

    Again, I would love to see 6.5 on the Treo, but I doubt Sprint is going to release it. The Treo Pro will be EOL sometime in Q1 of next year, when another device takes it's place.

    I'd love to be proven wrong, but history indicates otherwise (Treo 700W, anyone?)

    And we folks with Sprint Touch Pros are still wondering if there will really be an "official" WM 6.5 upgrade for the original Touch Pro. Of course given custom ROMs it's not such a big deal, but still... The GSM Touch Pro saw an "official" ROM update that never made it to the Sprint version and that was a WM 6.1 based update released for the GSM version back in February.

    The cooked ROMs on the HTC Touch/Touch Pro showed the world how poorly the "standard" releases from manufacturers/carriers are.
    Well before HTC was making devices under their own brand, folks like Shadowmite were making custom ROMs for the old Palm OS based Treos .

    It's too bad manufacturers/carriers fight the cooked ROMs instead of embracing them.
    Not all fight them, some "unofficially" embrace them and give folks like me a chance to "unofficially" test the new stuff . (Ohhhh and I'm loving every moment of it!)

    I will say the Treo gets 6.5. Not sure about the upcoming date. When I had a Mogul and Q9C they released WM 6.1 within a few weeks of each other.

    VibrantGT,

    Would you like to put a wager on that?
    I'm pretty sure there will not be an official 6.5 update for the Treo Pro. (although 6.5 on the "Treo Pro 2" or whatever the successor is called next year (Q3) when it comes out.

    My positive spin:

    If it is coming, I'd say by X-mas.

    It will further the life of the current treo pro so a pro 2 is not needed as fast... actually, what would a pro 2 look like?

    I'm sure Palm's resources are better served working on the new Palm OS.

    Palm Pro's roadmap:

    Palm Pro: 6.1

    Oct/Dec 09: 6.5

    2010/11: Palm Pro2 with Win 7

    I'd love to see that roadmap, but it just isn't going to happen.

    Sprint handset life is 9-16 months (i.e. how long they sell a particular model).

    The Treo Pro 2 would have WXGA screen, shrunken buttons, better camera, and more usuable memory.
    Bluetooth 3.0, USB 3.0, 802.11n, Wimax would be nice.
    All possible for a 2010 Q3 release.
