Palm Inc. introduced its new Windows Mobile-based, touch-screen Treo Pro on Wednesday. It is an affordable smartphone and is powered by Windows Mobile 6.1 professional. The business-targeted smartphone will be released in Europe and Australia, although an unlocked version will be available directly from Palm in the United States and Asia Pacific, as well as in some parts of Europe.
The latest Palm Treo Pro is a combination of sleek simplicity and robust productivity by featuring quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE and triband UMTS/HSDPA, WiFi b/g, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR. It offers e-mail and Wi-Fi, as well as GPS for maps, turn-by-turn directions and point-of-interest searches. The Palm Treo Pro has 256 MB ROM and 128 MB RAM which can be expanded with microSDHC memory cards, up to 32 GB. The device lacks a front facing camera for video telephony but features a 2.0 megapixel main camera on the back.
It also has one-touch access to 802.11b/g Wi-Fi, Web search directly from the Today screen, and a ringer switch that immediately mutes the device. The screen saver allows users to know what time it is, if they’ve missed a call, or if they have a new SMS/MMS message — without turning the phone on. A new, center button voice-mail indicator shows that a voice mail is waiting, and dedicated e-mail and calendar buttons provide fast one-button access. It also offers a high-resolution color touch screen, a full QWERTY keyboard, and a removable battery that can handle up to five hours of talk time.
In Europe, the Treo Pro will be priced anywhere from free, for some carrier plans, to EUR 399. In the United States, suggested retail price will be $549. Availability of Palm Treo Pro smartphone in India is still uncertain.
