Sprint takes the Treo 755p out behind the wood shed

David Blaine's going to make the continents magically reunite?

If our very own Matt “The Stapler” Hickey got you all hot and bothered about buying a Treo 755p thanks to his review yesterday, don’t bother. Not for Sprint, at least — it’s still available through Verizon, though.

Ed “The Windmill” Hardy over at Brighthand noticed that Sprint had removed the Treo 755p from its site, leading him to posit the following…

“[T]here really isn’t a place for it in Palm’s current product lineup. The 755p is something of a ‘switch hitter,’ a device that tries to appeal to both consumers and business users. Palm is no longer attempting to do this, as it now offers the Centro for those who want a consumer-oriented smartphone, and business users can get a Windows Mobile-based Treo, like the 700wx.”

So now you have to decide whether you’re a business user or a fun-loving youngster, which doesn’t bode well for Palm’s rather large midlife crisis-aged demographic.
