I love it! A beautiful new offering from Palm, my mobile gadget of choice! Enter the Treo Pro:
I currently run a Treo 750 and this beauty has all the goods my 750 lacks. Some of the highlights: a flush touchscreen, WiFi, 2 megapixel camera, a nonproprietary (finally) micro USB sync and charge connector, a standard sized 3.5mm headphone jack, and a nicely-sized 1500 mAh battery. It runs Windows Mobile 6.1, which I think is just great for a business phone and enables the use of Office Mobile. The processor is beefier too, at 400 Mhz, and storage size is upgraded to 256 MB rom and 128 MB ram. It will also support up to 32 gb microSD cards. It comes with Adobe Reader and the Telenav GPS software that I am currently enjoying on my 750. I am not sure if the GPS receiver is built into the phone – with mine, you need to employ a separate receiver to use the GPS function.
You can get the lowdown all over the web. I got mine here from Treonauts, via email yesterday. It is nice to see Palm stepping it up a bit in the face of the stiff competition represented by the 3G iPhone and soon-to-be-available Blackberry Bold.
It also is nice to have some real news on a new Palm release after last week’s rapid excitement and nearly as rapid let-down brought about by the mythical new touchscreen Centro:
Isn’t it cute?
