Palm make the Treo Pro officially official
Everyone else might be enraptured by Apple and Blackberry, but Palm still has a loyal, if rather small, following. The Treo Pro is both a reward to those few, and a recruitment call for others to join the group by Palm themselves.
It doesn’t look a million miles away from the design of the Blackberry Bold (I suppose there’s only so many differentiators if you’re going to make a black device with a QWERTY keyboard) but runs Windows Mobile, rather than the RIM software. Similarly, it does have HSDPA, WiFi, GPS and will supporrt micro SDHC cards up to 32GB.
There’s a paltry 2 megapixel camera, but on the plus side, it’s a standard 3.5mm headphone jack. Palm taketh away and then giveth again…
Should you be a Windows Mobile/Palm/email and serious biz stuff fan, you’ll be able to pick up the Treo Pro from September SIM free for £399. Alternatively, it’ll be available on the O2 and Vodafone network.[via Engadget]

It looks good but early thoughts on this have not been good; although its got a decent package of features, there’s nothing compelling about it that is not being offered elsewhere. Almost every smartphone carries the same spec list and the Palm Treo Pro offers nothing that makes it particularly stand out from the crowd and it runs on Windows Mobile 6.1, which apparently is not all that much fun to use.
