Palm to add WiFi to future Treos

One of the loudest complaints about the Treo is that it still doesn't support WiFi. Well that's eventually going to change. According to the Washington Post Technology Briefing, "Palm will add wireless Internet capabaility to future models of the Treo phone. The company had declined to add Wi-Fi because it drains battery life. Chief executive Edward T. Colligan would not say when the capability would be added. 'We do believe Wi-Fi is an important technology,' Colligan said. 'There's no question that we'll ultimately put in our products, but at the right time.'"

It is, however, not clear from the article whether Ed Colligan was speaking specifically about Treos, or whether the reporter simply jumped to conclusions.

From the Washington Post.

We can all probably guess that wifi is coming to the Treos. But instead of making a guess as to when it is coming, I have always liked to take the mindset of someone who used to work at Palm whom I once spoke to. He said to simply look at what we have done, and you will see with the newer models as to where we will be going. To that end, wifi on the Treos might be the next thing, but it should not be a shock if it is next - two things down the line.

God, I wish, and hopefully we'll see it within the next GSM Treo. I hope so.
