When the device was released I had a meeting with the then Vodafone New Zealand Product Manager (who left Vodafone now) and by the Palm Australia Sales Manager that we should expect a ROM update for the Palm Treo 750v enabling the faster HSDPA 3G standard. The expected date was around January 2007. I even wrote this in my Treo 750v review with their blessings.
Then January came and I was told instead of having a ROM update to enable HSDPA and then another update for Windows Mobile 6, Vodafone was planning to do a single update for both.
Now the product manager has left the company, and when I asked about this missing update I am told that an update for Windows Mobile 6 is coming, but there are no plans to enable HSDPA on this device anymore.
Frustrating. Our friends on Telstra can use their Palm Treo 750 with HSDPA, but Vodafone don't think it's for us.
