We first started hearing rumors about BlackBerry Connect for the Palm Treo being in final beta back in February. Some of the screen shots (look to the right) have been fairly compelling as was well. The bit of evidence that makes me think that Blackberry Connect for the Palm Treo is going to come out this fall is the fact that co-CEOs of Research in Motion, Mike Lazaridis and Jim Balsillie, both have been quoted lately as saying that BlackBerry Connect for the Palm Treo is coming out sometime this fall.

The latest such quote is from Jim Balsillie in a Newsweek article by Brad Stone. The article is kind of lengthy so if you just want to see the the reference to BlackBerry Connect coming out for the Palm Treo this fall read the end of the first paragraph here.
