Treo Pro Unboxing

Engadget Mobile has scored the first hands-on with the Treo Pro. It's mostly the packaging (nice) and a few shots next to the iPhone (nice again!). Actually, we like pretty much all the details here:

Honestly, we think Palm might have one up on Apple with the presentation this time around. Also of note: the new modular power adapter (which Palm tragically forgot to throw into our box), earbuds you might not be ashamed to sport, and no install CD -- it loads when you hook the phone up to your PC.

When was the last time you actually used an install CD for a smartphone, knowing that more up-to-date version were almost surely available online? Anyway, congrats to Engadget on the unboxing -- guess we'll have to give that open letter tactic a try sometime!

    The photos have an 8/8/2008 time stamp (or at least it appears that way). If they have had the device that long, sort of strange that there's no review (so that Engadget really scoops the competition).

    I think that's just the ordering of the date - "20/08/08" as "20th August 2008" (but you had me worried!)

    You're absolutely right. I misinterpreted it.
  • Dieter you jacked my thread! :censored: Lol j/k man.
  • Heh. had to have a fp story on it and didn't make sense to have 2 threads, so...
    I made sure to leave your title! :D
  • It's all good bro! So you getting one of these asap or what?
  • A few pics were subsequently added--pics of the charger and ear buds. That charger is, umm, interesting.

    It's strange that they mention the missing "modular charger," receive it, then fail to explain it. I hope that's a-comin'.
  • Hope they fixed battery life problems. And it appears there is no removable battery unless the entire back comes off. Bummer.
  • Whoops, found the pics with the back off. Should have read more before posting...

    The charger probably also conforms to international outlets since it's supposed to be used overseas as well.
  • I wonder if Palm deliberately made their box look like the box of the iPhone.
    I am loving it though. Nice touch Jon R!
  • What r u talking about? IPhone box is black, treo is WHITE and it looks way better!!!I wonder if Palm deliberately made their box look like the box of the iPhone.
    I am loving it though. Nice touch Jon R!
  • The Treo box, at least in those pictures, kinda looks like a shoe box, LOL.
  • The modular charger looks to be simply a bunch of adapters so that you can use the plug in many countries. It doesn't seem to say whether the adapters are included or not though.
  • If they don't improve the looks of the box it comes in, I'm not buying one.

    huh???
  • If they don't improve the looks of the box it comes in, I'm not buying one.
    Seriously?
  • "If they don't improve the looks of the box it comes in, I'm not buying one."
    Methinks he kid, he kid. Cause why would you pay 5 bills for something and worry about the looks of the darn box?
