"According to a leaked product roadmap, Palm's next high-end Windows Mobile smartphone will be introduced by Sprint in July. This report in in-line with comments from Palm executives, who said recently that their company will refresh its line of business-oriented smartphones this summer."
This is being touted as a replacement for the 700w, so it would seem to be a WM Professional (Pocket PC) device, not a WM Standard (Smartphone) as has been suggested by some rumors. It also shows WM 6.0 instead of 6.1, but this is an early list and it is still possible 6.1 will get loaded before it ships. They are providing a camera and cameraless version which will be good for those in jobs where camera phones are forbidden. I also believe this is the first Treo from Palm with built in WiFi. It is unconfirmed yet as to whether or not this device will have a 320x320 screen.
