While the Treo 650 ships without Bluetooth DUN support as previously reported, Sprint PCS has now announced its commitment to enable this feature in an upcoming firmware upgrade.
From Jeff Shafer, Sprint PCS Public Relations:
"Read your article on the Treo 650, and I wanted to make sure you fully understand the Bluetooth DUN stance from Sprint. While the functionality is not currently enabled (due to some timing issues around the launch), it will be enabled via a maintenance software release coming relatively soon (no specific timing is available as we have to test things to ensure the best possible experience). We currently support this functionality in the new PPC-6600/6601, so I want to make sure that there is not a sense that Sprint is suppressing a function. Once testing is complete, the functionality will become available."
This is great news, as no one we met at the CTIA convention hinted that Sprint would enable the DUN functionality.
Sprint has now made it clear that there were no intention to block users from using the Treo 650 as a modem and force users onto the PCMCIA card, as I had inferred in a previous article.
