    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.
    You wan't to put a wager on it never getting 6.5? Sure I'll put a friendly whopping $10 wager on it.

    You're on for $10.
    Again, the bet is that Sprint does not release a firmware upgrade to WinMo 6.5 for the currently release of the Treo Pro.

    We need a deadline...how long do you want? I think April 30th 2010 is generous.
    Agreed?

    Can't someone talk to a high level palm rep. and just ask if they will release winmo 6.5 for it's latest Treo device?

    If they say no, don't tell us, make a rumor saying that they will then when palm realizes that people want it, they'll maybe consider it? Besides i've never seen winmo 6.5 on a 320x320 screen before.

    There was an announcement by Sprint earlier this year that all current model devices that they were selling would be upgraded to 6.5 later this year. I'll have to try and hunt this down when I have the time......

    I remember they said that about WM6.1, but don't recall any carrier committing to WM6.5--if you could find that it'd be helpful though.

    I tend to agree with Mike. I can think of seven or eight costs, cost risks and liabilities to upgrading the treo pro and very little corresponding upside.

    Ok so palm just introduced a new webOS device, now webOs looks slick and i like palm is on a role to introducing very good looking devices. so palm should upgrade the pro to 6.5 because it looks good. Also now that the pixi out of the way, they can focus on the TREO!!

    We will definitely know by October 6th when they announce WM6.5.

    On that day (or very soon thereafter), you can expect all the carriers to announce what devices are getting the update and I guarantee you this time, the wait will be very short (compared to WM6.1)--carriers have been playing with WM6.5 ROMs for awhile already.
    Mobile operators AT&T, Bell Mobility, Sprint, TELUS and Verizon Wireless, and phone manufacturers HP, HTC Corp., LG Electronics, Samsung and Toshiba Corp.
    Sadly, Palm is not mentioned there. Still, I wouldn't say it means they're out either--they're just not a big WM player anymore.

    (BTW, I'll be at that Microsoft event on October 6th in NYC when all of this is announced)

    So will there likely be a 6.5 OS for the unlocked Palm GSM TP?

    I would hope so...

    Unless the person you spoke with was at least in the Advanced Device Support department, their claim is pretty empty. Many of the folks on the Sprint phones say all kinds of things. Unless you get higher up the support ranks into ADS.

    On the CDMA Treo Pro custom ROM front, here's a thread to keep an eye on:
    CFay 6.5 Rom! CEOS 5.2.23409 ! Windows Mobile 6.5.1! - PPCGeeks

    READ ME: I am getting my Touch Pro 2 tomorrow (9-14), therefore I am making this thread and releasing what I have as soon as cmonex releases her unlocker. All files are uploaded and ready to go. Thanks to everyone for there patience and understanding. This device was NOT EASY to crack and make roms for, its quite different from any device I have ever worked on.
    Let's hope this means all will be ready soon.

    Although it fits the hardware parameters, the thing that might make it more possible is the fact HTC was mentioned & HTC made the Treo Pro.

    Last I heard, she was working on an unlocker for both. But I have not read of anyone actively working on a GSM Treo Pro custom ROM.
