Palm has significantly cut the price of its latest Windows phone. The unlocked version of the Palm Treo Pro is now going for $150 less than it previously was.
Until now, the official price of this smartphone was $550, but that dropped to $400 today.
At the same time, the Treo Pro is also available from Sprint, who is asking $200 for it. That requires signing a two-year contract and mailing in a rebate, though.
The unlocked version is sold without a contract, and can be used with any GSM carrier — AT&T, T-Mobile, etc. — by plugging in a SIM card.
It runs Microsoft’s Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional on a 400 MHz processor from Qualcomm, and comes with the standard suite of productivity applications.
The unlocked version of the Pro is a quad-band GSM device with tri-band UMTS/HSDPA support, which means it can be used for both phone calls and 3G wireless access around the world. In addition, it has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
Sprint’s version, on the other hand, offers this carrier’s mobile broadband service EV-DO.
Features in both version include an external microSD card slot for additional storage, a built-in GPS receiver, and a 2.0 MPx camera.
The Treo Pro is also available from Alltel.
