Palm Treo Pro Now Available for Nearly 10% Off

by Reads (3,546)

Palm’s latest smartphone — the Treo Pro — is now available from a couple of sources for $50 off the regular price.

The Treo Pro is being sold unlocked and directly to U.S. consumers, rather than through a wireless carrier. It normally sells for $550, but currently can be found for less.

The online retailer is listing this Windows Mobile-based device for $500, with two-day shipping at $5.50.

And Palm itself is offering a $50 discount off all items bought in the Palm Store that cost more than $200. Obviously, that brings the cost of the Treo Pro down to $500, with free ground shipping. 

An Overview of the Palm Treo Pro

This smartphone has the design that’s become a hallmark of the Treo line, a candybar shape with 320-by-320-pixel touchscreen above a QWERTY thumb-keyboard.

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 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, including AT&T. In addition, it has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Other features include an external microSD card slot for additional storage, a built-in GPS receiver, and a 2.0 MPx camera.
