1X Treo

Handspring has officially launched the Treo 300, the CDMA 1X version of its Treo 270. This is the first Treo product that is for CDMA networks and the first to support a wireless packet-switched network. The two current Treos that support voice services are for GSM based networks. But they have yet to support the GSM version of packet data, GPRS. It is curious that the CDMA1X version has hit the market before the promised GPRS patch for the GSM models. Could Handspring be struggling with GPRS support? GSM carriers Cingular and Voicestream both support the GSM Treo’s but have yet to sell them directly due to the lack of GPRS support.
