Palm Treo Pro officially announced, has GPS and all

20 Aug, 2008

The Palm Treo Pro is official as of today, as Palm debut their latest Windows Mobile Professional device. Online leaks of the device caused mixed feelings last week.

Palm Treo Pro will sport the company trademark square touchscreen display with a resolution of 320 x 320 pixels. All four GSM and three UMTS bands are covered, which makes the phone good for worldwide roaming. HSDPA is also on board to boost data transfer speed over 3G networks.

The Palm Treo Pro runs on Windows Mobile Professional 6.1 and is powered by a 400 MHZ Qualcomm CPU. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and USB connectivity are all on board, and so is a microSD card slot handling cards up to 32 GB (when those are one day available, of course). Some of the other features of the new Treo include built-in GPS, a 2 megapixel camera and a 3.5mm standard audio jack.

The amount of user memory on the Palm Treo Pro is up to 100 MB, while the RAM is 128MB. The whole thing will feed on a huge 1500 mAh Li-Ion battery.

Palm Treo Pro is expected to hit the shelves in Europe in September at about 375 euro (549 US dollars) before taxes or subsides. The Treo Pro availability will then expand to other markets worldwide.
