Several weeks after the official unveiling, Palm has released its latest Windows Mobile-based smartphone, the Treo Pro, in the United States.
This device is being sold unlocked and directly to U.S. consumers, rather than through a wireless carrier, for $550. It is now in stock at Palm’s web store, and customers who pre-ordered one should soon receive a notice that it has shipped.
In Europe, the Treo Pro is being offered through Vodafone, who has not yet released it.
More About 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.
Other features include an external microSD card slot for additional storage, a built-in GPS receiver, and a 2.0 MPx camera.
