According to Reuters, Palm is expected to unveil the latest version of its Windows Mobile based UMTS Treo next month as it attempts to revive sales hit by tough competition and problems with previous models.
"The announcement is going to be made in the UK on September 12, and we will give all the details then but at the moment all we are saying is that it will be out before the end of the year," said a Palm spokeswoman.
A September or October release is seen by analysts as vital for any firm hoping to cash in on the all-important Christmas period as they vie for shelf space with rivals' products.
The Californian-based firm said in July the new version will operate on Vodafone's high-speed third generation UMTS network and be powered by Microsoft's Windows Mobile for Pocket PC Phone Edition operating system, however details about the handset's functionality remain sketchy.
At least we got a date now. Stay tuned for more information.
