Whew! We were getting a little worried here that the Sprint Treo Pro, that sleek n' shiny update to the Treo 800w, was getting lost in all the Palm Pre hubbub.
Luckily TreoCentral forum member elistone was kind enough to finally post some of those luscious details on this beaut. What is curious is that evidently it only has aGPS and not standalone-GPS (a contentious issue with 800w owners). Of course WMExperts will do a comparions of both devices as soon as we get out mitts on one to verify.
So without further ado...Sprint Treo Pro:
- Robust battery life with an 1500 mAh li-lon battery and 5 hours of continuous talk time.
- Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional Edition (OS) providing a feature rich experience (with Enterprise SCMDM options)
- 128MB program memory (DDR) and 256 non-volatile memory (175MB of user store)
- A-GPS – for navigation and turn-by-turn directions - Autonomous & Simultaneous GPS allows points of interests searching and mapping from contacts.
- Instant-on WiFi short-cut key - WPA/WPA2 certified
- 2.0 Megapixel resolution Camera for still and video shots with BPP Basic Printing Profile
- Price: $549 retail; $249 2-year contract
While nothing earth shattering, it should be a strong business messenger device for Sprint. Look for it on Sunday, the 25th this month.

70MB more memory for the user. Nice!
I wonder if more changes will srface later.
Nice to see the Treo Pro is going CDMA, just wish Palm would sell everything in a none branded version so you were not limited to the carrier if you want their phones now. I know Sprint has its good coverage areas and its not so good coverage areas.
I hope it is for sale on the 25th
It will have IE 6 with Flash support.
How do you know it'll come with IE6 & Flash support?
Because I have used it.
