Palm has released Treo 650 Updater 1.17 for Cingular (soon to be AT&T) users.

The Treo 650 Updater 1.17 offers these performance enhancements for your smartphone:
  • Includes VersaMail 3.1c, the latest version for Cingular Wireless Treo 650, which includes an updated Mail Service (ISP) list.
  • Adds support for Gmail attachment downloads via web browser
  • Optimizes Bluetooth performance for some Motorola headsets and other car kits
  • Adds voice quality enhancements.
  • Optimizes memory handling
  • Correctly saves Auto-off power setting. This addresses an issue experienced by some users after installing updater version 1.15
  • Adds an audible beep to indicate call initiation failures
  • Improves battery life by automatically turning off screen after 30 seconds of a call (originally included in Treo 650 Update 1.15). The power savings will vary depending on usage patterns. To turn the display back on at any time, tap the screen. Do not press the red Power/End button, unless you want to end the call. The screen-off feature applies to handset mode only, not speakerphone or headset modes.
