Palm Treo Pro


Even though the sleek and beautiful touch-screen Palm Treo Pro is essentially a minor update of the 800W, its alluring external aesthetic make it feel like a whole new phone. Like the 800W, Palm does a superior job of putting lipstick on the Windows...

Beautiful aesthetics; Zippy EV-DO Rev. A connections; great voice quality; quality video playback; 3.5mm stereo headphone jack

Not upgradeable to Windows Mobile 6.5; poor camera and video; poor battery life; tightly-packed QWERTY keypad; no direct access keys for camera or music playback

If cool-factor aesthetics aren't a critical issue for you, the less stylish 800W is $100 less than the Pro.

Palm Treo Pro (Sprint)


This compact Windows Mobile phone offers good call quality and a nice selection of included software.

The Sprint Palm Treo Pro is a business tool and multimedia device rolled into one. In general we prefer the HTC Touch Pro, which offers a more compelling TouchFLO user interface, better keyboard, and a sharper 3.2-MP camera, but that smart phone costs...

Palm Treo Pro ( Sprint)


Recently, Sprint confirmed the rumors and announced that it will add the Palm Treo Pro to its smartphone lineup starting March 15. Unfortunately, the news received lukewarm response given that most people's attention is focused on another Palm...

The Palm Treo Pro features a sleek design that combines a full QWERTY keyboard and touch screen. The smartphone ships with Internet Explorer 6 and offers full connectivity options, including EV-DO Rev. A support and GPS.

The Treo Pro's QWERTY keyboard is cramped, and we wish the screen was slightly bigger. The smartphone can occasionally be sluggish. Though IE Mobile 6 brings some improvements, it's still cumbersome compared with some other mobile browsers.

The Palm Treo Pro for Sprint offers plenty of features and satisfactory performance, but the carrier's business customers will get a better user experience from the HTC Touch Pro.

Treo Pro


After a few delays, the Palm Treo Pro is now shipping from Sprint (for $200 with a two-year contract, as of 3/5/09). This smart phone will please Windows Mobile fans with its sleek design and its business-friendly features. Sprint customers seeking a...

Sleek design Includes applet to close running programs

Keyboard and display feel cramped Below-average camera

The 2-megapixel camera is mediocre. With no flash, pictures appeared dark and blurry. In outdoor shots, colors looked washed out and images seemed grainy. The camera has a few advanced features, namely 8X digital zoom, brightness and white-balance...

Palm Treo Pro Smart Phone


Palm's latest Treo is a sleek and well-connected Windows Mobile Treo, but it's pricey because it lacks carrier support.

Skinny Treo delivers 3G, Wi-Fi and GPS ; Includes applet to close running apps

Gets warm in the hand rather quickly ; No carrier subsidy, so its rather pricey

The Treo Pro has plenty of pluses: Svelte good looks, bundled GPS software, a standard earphone jack, and easy Windows Mobile app shutdown. But the Treo Pro's heat issue worries me--and its high unlocked price tag could turn off anyone whose corporate...

Palm Treo Pro


Those looking for a full-featured Windows Mobile smartphone should consider the Treo Pro. It may not have the snazzy interface designs of the competition, but this means it performs better in most areas.

Excellent performance, Sleek, iPhone-esque design, Superior coverage for regional areas, HSDPA, Wi-Fi and GPS

Tiny QWERTY keypad, Average battery life, More expensive than comparable phones, Needs better navigation software

Palm Treo Pro and HP iPaq 910c Business Messenger: Battle of the Black Business Smart Phones


The newest Palm Treo and HP iPaq unlocked phones aim to take a bite out of the business phone market. But do they have the chops to do so?

I would definitely recommend the HP to hard-core business users who can benefit from its enterprise software--as long as they can live with its expansion-card limitations. The Treo Pro has plenty of pluses, too: Skinny good looks, bundled GPS software,...

Palm Treo Pro Fronts Handsome Styling, Half-Baked Touch...


Until Palm unleashes the JesusTreo (rumored to descend in 2009), this reworked, dolled-up device is as good as it gets for the once-mighty smartphone company.

Trim, light and pocketable. Shortcuts prove beyond useful. Decent 2-MP pics. MicroUSB! Battery lasts almost two full days. 3.5-mm headphone jack. PPT/Excel/Word and PDF-reading, of course. Google Maps AND TeleNav GPS, which offers turn-by-turn...

Menu scrolling is about as fluid as a piece of dolomite. Slippery “obsidian” plastic casing retains more fingerprints than the NSA. Noticeable screen glare. Curved design comprised by bottomside USB/headphone jack that should be recessed more....

Palm Treo Pro Review


If the Palm Treo Pro cost the same as competing devices from HTC, RIM, and Samsung, we would probably give it a stronger recommendation. But because you can currently only purchase it unlocked in North America, the audience for this $549 device is...

Stylish design, Helpful shortcuts, Fast 3G and Wi-Fi data, Strong call quality, Loud speaker

Mediocre keyboard, No flash for camera, Back cover difficult to remove, Pricey

Palm Treo Pro (unlocked)


While not the best-kept secret in the technology world, with leaked photos and videos all over the Net, we were still amped over Palm's official unveiling of the Palm Treo Pro. And why wouldn't we be? The smartphone looked pretty sharp, both inside and...

The Palm Treo Pro boasts a sleek design and offers a wide range of wireless options, including Wi-Fi, HSDPA, Bluetooth, and GPS. The Windows Mobile smartphone also provides many productivity and communication tools for the business user

The Treo Pro is too expensive and can be sluggish at times. The QWERTY keyboard is cramped and doesn't really suit the business feel of the device

The Palm Treo Pro offers significant improvements in the design and features department, but the smartphone doesn't offer anything revolutionary and costs more than its competitors, which will make it a hard sell.
