  • Treo PRO now available from Sprint for $249

    Palm and Sprint might have a pickle on their hands. Now that the Palm Pre is the hottest upcoming phone of 2009, how are they going to sell the Treo PRO when the Pre is rumored to launch next month? Sprint thankfully has priced the PRO well with to a $200 price cut and a $100 MIR which brings the MSRP down to a respectable $249. Still, Windows Mobile on the PRO or the sexy, new webOS powering… Read More

  • Review: Palm Treo Pro

    So we return to the Palm Treo Pro, a $549 unlocked Windows Mobile Treo aimed squarely at the business set. It’s been about a week and I’ve used this guy off and on. It kept a nice charge – two days, for the most part, without much data use – and fit nicely in the pocket. But is it the Treo of which we all incessantly dream? Is it the Treo that will bring us closer to… Read More

  • Quick Look: Palm Treo Pro

    Here we are, friends: the $549 WinMo smartphone from Palm. Initial opinions: it’s a nice size, very slim. Smaller than the Centro and the OS is fairly peppy. A dedicated WiFi button on the side makes picking up networks much easier and they’ve stripped out a lot of the MSN garbage from the WinMo start-up screen. We’ll be working with it over the next week and report back… Read More

  • Palm Treo Pro now officially official

    via MobilityToday Sure, news of this thing leaked like a Greek fishing boat the moment Palm thought it up but now it’s offical. Behold: the Palm Treo Pro, a WinMo 6.1 cellphone with some nice features including enhanced WiFi discover, G.P.S., and a sexy touchscreen. Is it earth-shattering? No, but as we just learned Palm is going to create a series of great phones instead of one… Read More

  • Treo Pro officially bows early, then gets pulled off stage

    So on the 21st, Palm is going to make the Treo Pro official but the leaks keep flowing. Next up was the official press photos, but all we managed to grab was a screenshot before those were pulled. Unfortunately, there wasn’t anything new announced. Some Palm fanboys are still holding out for HSDPA but that doesn’t look good. Palm has unveiled a new moble device, the Treo Pro… Read More

  • Treo Pro live shots, details continue to leak

    Just a few days ago, no one really knew anything about the Treo Pro. Hell, it wasn’t even called the Treo Pro before Friday. Just two days later, we know just about all there is to know about Palm’s pretty little unreleased WinMo handset. The purported specs thus far: Qualcomm 7201 chipset 400Mhz CPU 320×320 screen GPS Tri-band 3G, Quad-band GSM 32GB MicroSDHC support… Read More

  • Review: Treo 800w on Sprint


    I am not a huge fan of Windows Mobile. I am, however, a huge fan of Palm and, as I’ve mentioned before, I’m befuddled by their recent decisions. As a blogger I’m full of half-baked opinions and prejudices and no where is this more prevalent than in my understanding of Palm and its various incarnations over the years. That said, I’m going to try to be calm and objective… Read More

  • Treo 800w to get Bluetooth Voice Dialing soon

    With the Treo 800w lacking a standard wired headset/headphone jack, users were a bit surprised (read: mad) to find that the voice commands they’d grown accustomed to on other (cheaper) Palm handsets weren’t functional over Bluetooth. Fortunately, it seems that voice-enabled features were just a bit delayed, rather than completely omitted. From this page over at… Read More

  • Treo 800w reviewed

    Dave from MobilityToday reviews the Treo 800w, Palm’s $249 Windows Mobile Treo sold by Sprint. While I’d rather watch Dave test the blend-ability of this toad, if you need/want WinMo, need/want a Treo, and need/want to watch something that isn’t about the iPhone then maybe this is a good choice. I need to go get some coffee or something. I’m surly as all get out. Read More

  • Palm Treo 800w set to release on July 13th

An integrated antenna is the biggest change in the form-factor. The phone will also feature a 320×320 touch display, Wi-Fi, GPS and will, unfortunately, have Windows Mobile 6.1 as its OS. Also worth noting is… Read More

  • Palm's new Treo 800w shot in the wild and looking good

    The Treo 800w’s launch date of June 22 is getting closer, and the phone has once again been spotted in the wild. The Windows Mobile smartphone featuring the new Treo form factor is making Palm’s business users excited.

  • Palm to launch new "prosumer" smartphone with new OS

    Don’t look for Palm OS 2.0 to come to your Centro any time soon. Sure, Palm’s sold millions of the small smartphones, but it also has a perpetual license for the current Palm OS and will likely continue to use it for the consumer handsets. Palm OS 2, as it’s unofficially called, will be geared towards a “prosumer” model of smartphone, something with more features… Read More

  • Rumor: Sprint's Treo 800w to drop June 22

    We’re hearing more and more about the Sprint Treo 800w, the first new Treo from Palm sporting the new Centro-like re-design.
