Treo 800w to launch on Sprint July 13th; Later on Verizon

Mon Jul 7, 2008 - 9:22 AM EDT - By Jennifer Chappell

Dieter lets us know over at WMExperts that the Treo 800w will launch on Sprint first for $249 with contract on July 13th (or 10th for those willing to hunt it down early thru backchannels), then eventually come to Verizon.

Phone Arena reports that they learned that the 800w might be a Sprint exclusive for the first 2-3 months of its life. They've obtained documentation indicating that the 800w will launch 60-90 days before it launches on Verizon.

Someone asked Ed Colligan during the Quarterly Conference call about carrier exclusivity. Colligan replied:

You know, each one of the different launches will have a little different dynamics and -- but in general, they will be pretty broadly distributed early out the gate, and so I wouldn�t -- you know, they are not going to be exclusive for any period of time, you know, in any particular region.
