Palm Releases Treo 650 Updater 1.17 for Cingular Subscribers

I missed this in the run up to Thanksgiving, but Palm released Treo 650 Updater 1.17 for Cingular Wireless customers on November 21. This update supercedes the one that was released in July and adds the following improvements:

  • Includes Versamail 3.1c,
  • Gmail attachment downloads,
  • Optimizes Bluetooth performance for some Motorola headsets and other car kits. I have a Motorola HS850, so I'm hoping that this will help me.
  • Voice quality enhancements,
  • Optimizes memory handling,
  • Correctly saves Auto-off power setting,
  • Adds an audible beep when the phone can't initiate a call properly,
  • Improves battery life by turning off the screen 30 seconds into a call. This was part of the previous update as well.

I will have more comments on the Treo 650 update after I have time to apply it to my Treo.
