Treo 750 to be announced on September 12th

GSM customers will finally get a Windows Mobile powered Treo, but only in Europe for now. The device should also be coming to Cingular in the U.S. before the end of the year.

Palm has to be one of the worst companies at keeping secrets and preventing leaks from hitting the internet. I posted recently about the photos of the Palm Treo 750 and according to a Palm spokesperson the Treo 750 will be announced on September 12th in the UK. This Treo is the GSM/UMTS model running Windows Mobile 5.0 and will be launched on Vodafone's network. As a T-Mobile USA customer I haven't yet had the chance to try a Windows Mobile Treo, but after using a Palm Treo 650 for over a year I am very interested in trying out a Treo 750. I wonder if early adopters will be able to pick up an unlocked model from Europe? If so, I would consider it except for the unknown surrounding T-Mobile USA's 3G network rollout. I can't buy a new device unless I know it will work on T-Mobile USA's network when it hopefully starts rolling out later this year or early 2007. Photos of the Treo 750 showed a Cingular splash screen so I imagine it will work on their 3G network, that is already starting to roll out in places like New York.
