Confirmed: Sprint Treo Pro coming March 15

nice to see that a CDMA version of the Treo Pro does in fact exist, just wish Sprint didn't suck as bad as it does in my area or I would think of getting one. I guess I will just have to wait till it is on a carrier that works in my area. I also wish Palm would offer the CDMA in an unlocked version like they do with the GSM version so I could pick another carrier.

Don't get me wrong, I love my gsm treo pro, but "combining a LARGE touch screen" seems like a silly tag line for this phone.

I really want this phone. But like 1 year ago! How can I buy this with only 3 months to the Pre? Too Bad.. But I'm used to this type of letdown being with Sprint and Palm for 10 years!
