    Sprint and Palm Announce Upcoming Availability of Treo Pro on America’s Most Dependable 3G Network ​


    Elegant Windows Smartphone Supports Blazing-Fast 3G Data Speeds, First Palm Phone to Offer Internet Explorer Mobile 6


    SUNNYVALE, Calif. & OVERLAND PARK, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Palm, Inc. and Sprint today announced the upcoming availability of the Treo™ Pro smartphone for the Sprint Mobile Broadband Network on March 15.

    Treo Pro will be available through all Sprint retail channels, including Sprint | Palm Treo Pro, 1-800-SPRINT1 and Sprint retail stores, for $199.99 with a two-year subscriber agreement (after a $100 instant rebate and $100 mail-in rebate, with an Everything plan with data or a $30 per month or higher data add-on). It also will be available through the Palm Store (Palm Phones - Smartphones, Handhelds, PDAs : Palm USA) and Palm’s B2B sales organization beginning March 16.

    Treo Pro is a sleek, full-function smartphone offering users the ease of use and robust features they demand while providing the reliability and manageability IT departments require. With the EV-DO Rev. A speeds of Sprint’s Mobile Broadband Network, Wi-Fi, GPS and Windows Mobile 6.1 capabilities, Treo Pro helps busy professionals stay connected on the go so they can structure their lives around their priorities without sacrificing work productivity.(1)

    “Business decision makers require a product that not only integrates seamlessly into their existing IT infrastructures, but one that’s also cost-effective,” said John Traynor, vice president, business products, Palm, Inc. “Treo Pro delivers just that – a feature set that IT managers need to support their mobile work force.”

    Treo Pro is the first Palm phone available with Internet Explorer Mobile 6, with options for either a mobile-optimized or desktop-like Internet browsing experience on America’s most dependable 3G network.(2) It blends a high-resolution color touch screen and a full QWERTY keyboard with a removable battery that packs up to five hours of talk time and enough strength for the business user’s needs, offering a powerful yet effortless mobile experience. Palm’s Wi-Fi hardware and software innovations on Treo Pro make it easy to get online fast and manage network connections and power usage. The one-touch Wi-Fi button provides a clean, uncluttered Wi-Fi experience that gets Treo Pro users rapidly connected at home, in the office or in Wi-Fi hotspots.

    “The combination of Sprint Mobile Broadband with EV-DO (Evolution - Data Optimized) Revision (Rev.) A technology and Windows Mobile 6.1 on a Palm smartphone creates a mobile solution that meets the needs of today’s mobile professionals,” said Kevin Packingham, senior vice president of product & technology development for Sprint. “For years, Sprint, Microsoft and Palm have worked together to provide businesses large and small with an affordable mobile experience that is second to none, and Treo Pro continues that collaborative tradition.”

    PS: For anyone considering the Treo Pro, if being a CDMA device or Sprint being involved has not messed anything up, it has my personal endorsement. My GSM Treo Pro is everything it claims to be and more.:)

    Hopefully this will make a splash and stir up a little interest to those who think Sprint has been lacking on new technology recently.

    Re: Palm Treo Pro Details & Fact Sheet

    Some Best Buy Stores are already selling them. The store by the Westminster Mall (CA) has them for $249.

    The reviews on it so far have been so-so. But most reviews were done with the version that was pulled last second to fix a memory issue. With that Palm still is stingy on memory with this device. Their is much more HTC infuence with this device, no tipical WM Palm customization like on the 700w/wx & 750. :(

    Those early units were a problem & BB should have never sold them. I agree the Palm customization is very little & I wish it wasn't so. Other than that I like my GTP very much, as you know it does have more available memory than the STP. :)

    CONGRATULATIONS!

    I hope you like yours as much as I like mine. After you have enough time with it, could you please post a review.

    Have fun playing with your new toy. :)

    Re: Treo Pro on Sprint - March 15th.

    It's been fun so far. I really like the screen saver, 3.5mm jack, form factor.

    The only issue I have had so far is that it froze up once while running WMP. :(
