NY Times: Treo 180 Will Ship January 14
In yesterday's New York Times, David Pogue reported that the Treo 180 will be available from Handspring on January 14. This piece of information was contained in an article that reviewed the Motorola V220 (unfavorably) and the Treo 180 (favorably). Handspring itself has not announced a firm date for Treo 180 availability.
The article also points out that Handspring plans CDMA versions of Treo devices, at some point in the future. This would allow much wider use of Treo's in the Northeastern U.S., because Verizon operates its wireless network on the CDMA standard. Currently, the only mobile carrier in the Northeast using the GSM standard (on which the forthcoming Treo 180 is based) is Voicestream.
