Treo 700p fixes coming (at last)

On The Official Palm Blog, Steve Sinclair, the Treo Product Manager, announced a couple of days ago that a Maintenance Release (AKA firmware update) for the Treo 700p is in late stage testing with carriers and should be released in the very near future. This is great news for all of us who have been putting up with spotty Bluetooth, intermittent hangs, and other issues since this model was first released.

This is great news for all of us who have been putting up with spotty Bluetooth, intermittent hangs, and other issues since this model was first released. Sinclair provides a clear explanation of Palm's approach to making the patch vs. MR decision to address problems that I can at once appreciate from my own industry experience and brush off with typical customer impatience at the same time. He closes with this "stake in the ground" announcement:

We're now in the carrier certification phase with the Treo 700p MR and as I type this, our best estimate of customer release will be the week of May 28th. In addition to the Bluetooth improvements I mentioned above, the 700p MR includes updates to SMS send/receive performance, MP3 playback, phone app launch speed and other areas. It's admittedly been a much longer project than expected, but we're almost there...

We're waiting...
