    Unlocked GSM Firmware Update Coming Soon!

    A version of the firmware update for Unlocked GSM Treo 650s was leaked from an Asian PalmOne site last week. It takes the phones from the preinstalled version 1.15 to version 1.21. Then a second newer version was leaked today - version 1.23. The word is that a final US version 1.25 will finally be posted on the PalmOne support website on May 5th.
    Some can't wait, and have already loaded version 1.23 - Including me! No problems so far, and I gained 5MB in memory after the update.

    The improvements that I notice so far are:

    Versamail is now version 3.0c - seems to work better with Microsoft exchange server.

    I gained almost 5MB in space with more efficient file size handling.

    The screen seems almost "brighter" if that was possible. I'm setting it at a lower setting for the same brightness.

    Battery life seems improved. likely due to the brightness setting.

    Earpiece and speakerphone volume is better, and I haven't expierenced any "echos" yet.

    No soft resets or lockups yet. But it's only been 2 days!

    The "official" release for Cingular and Unlocked phones will be soon, I hope, and all can see the way the Treo should have been at release!
