Verizon Treo 650 ROM Updater Released

Tue Oct 24, 2006 - 1:22 PM EDT - By Dieter Bohn


Palm released the Treo 650 Updater 1.05a for Verizon Wireless last week. It's nice to see Palm is still supporting hardware that's theoretically been overtaken by newer Treos.

Those of us with 700 series Treos, however, are starting a feel a little antsy: Verizon users still can't get the extra program memory the 700wx provides; 700p users are agitating for a ROM update; 700wx users on Sprint still aren't able to SMS non-Sprint phones; and both 700w and 700wx users are taking matters into their own hands to try to get what the 750v already has: threaded text messaging.

So here's to hoping that last week's Verizon Treo 650 update is a harbinger of more ROM updates to come.

But I digress. Here's the info on the update for Verizon Treo 650s:
