We've been waiting to get our hands on the Treo 700p, especially since we keep getting teased with pretty real-looking pics of it. But we just came across an ominous claim, tossed casually into a PC World article about using the 650 as a laptop replacement. The article states that  "according to a Palm spokesperson, no new Palm-based Treos are due before mid 2006." We're not sure why Palm is saying this now; the company has been pretty tight-lipped about launch dates for the 700p and other upcoming products until now. While we're tempted to speculate on the reasons for the timing (waiting for ALP? problems with Inventec?), we'll just sigh longingly and tick off the days on our calendar until "mid 2006."
