While Vodaphone Treo 750 owners and those that are running hacked versions already have their Windows Mobile 6 update that was announced back in March 2007 at CTIA, AT&T 750 owners are sitting back waiting. Patiently? Not anymore, people are getting irritated. I have a feeling that it’s just a matter of time, but now we have some new info. Although the date on this slide has come and gone, it’s looking more promising…

A leaked AT&T presentation has been posted in the TreoCentral forums. The document appears to be an internal briefing on the upcoming Palm ROM updates for the Treo 750 and Treo 680. The plan details the procedure for the imminent Windows Mobile 6 upgrade for the Treo 750, and a comprehensive OS update for the Treo 680 as well.

The document basically confirms the flurry of WM6 update rumors that have circled the 750 since its release in 2006. As expected, the WM6 update will be free and will also be pre-installed on new 750s supposedly beginning this month. The HSDPA 1.8 upgrade will be contained within the update as well “improved phone controls” and new AT&T Entertainment applications (CV, AT&T Mall, AT&T Music). The AT&T promotional materials do specify an October 15th date which has unfortunately come and passed but hopefully the delay will not be as long as what Treo 700p owners were plagued with throughout 2006 and 2007.
