Is Palm Dumping Its Current Stock of Unlocked Treo 750s?

Wed Apr 23, 2008 - 2:49 AM EDT - By Mike Guccione

Update: Apparently you can get the Treo 750 for even cheaper if you sign up for a Buy.com credit card or a RevolutionCard, as low as $209.99! Of course, this is not an endorsement for either card and make sure you read all of the fine print, yada, yada, yada. Still, if you're game, that's a pretty cheap unlocked Treo. Thanks for sending this in Rich!

And this coming just a day after Dan reported the current ongoing smartphone shortage. One phone that apparently is not in any type of shortage is the aging Treo 750. Buy.com sent out a mass email today advertising unlocked Treo 750s running Windows Mobile 6.0 for only $259.99. What??? No contract, brand new, no strings attached AND free shipping? If this isn't a clear indicator that Palm is readying its inventories for the upcoming Treo 800, I'm not sure what is.

The Treo 750 has been around for a long time so this should come as no surprise (for a quick look back in history, check out TC's first look at the 750v here.) In fact, as far as smartphone life cycles go, it's been around for what feels like an eternity (it was first announced in September of 2006 on the Vodaphone network.) So if you're in the market for a good Windows Mobile smartphone with that famous Palm flavor (and don't mind having a slightly older model), might want to hurry and pick one up before the Treo 750 can be added to the list of phones on the nationwide shortage.
