Hands on with the Treo Pro

Hands on with the Treo Pro

Palm stands at a crossroads, but thanks to the Centro they appear to be on the proper side.  The Treo Pro is their next step back to prominence, and its a pretty good looking step.  The Windows Mobile 6.1 device departs from the traditional Treo image and slims down to just 13mm while getting a sexy makeover.  Beauty is more than skin deep though, and the Treo Pro deliveres just about anything you could want in a smartphone.  It features a 400MHz processor with 128MB of RAM, 256MB of ROM and microSD expansion to 32GB when available.  On the connectivity side you'll find HSDPA 3.6, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.0.  Will the Treo Pro help bring Palm out of the depths and back into the limelight?  Stay tunes for our full review of the Treo Pro soon!

waaaay higher class then the centro, though i do wish they had not used the same keypad. the pro is similar in build quality to the iphone

Yeah, I didn't like the keypad on the centro much either, but then again I only used it for a couple days. I may have grown used to it had I used it for a longer period of time. I am glad they're going with WinMo 6.1 though, I didn't really like the Palm OS

Have any of you even used a centro? That is a fantastic device. Granted it runs on Palm's dated OS, but palm is working to finally be able to compete with RIM as far as the OS is concerned. I believe they went with WinMo 6.1 b/c the licensing fees are cheap and Palm OS sales have declined, even with the success of the Centro. But don't bash a great product b/c you have precognitions of previous and inferior models.

I usually just read the blogs and hardly ever respond - but I am not sure why the negatives of the Centro and its keyboard. I am not sure if the comments are by some of you that have used it or not. But it really isnt that bad, i dont have small fingers and I was able to type on that Centro with ease and I had it for over a year until i just got the Treo PRO and although the keyboard is similar to the Centro (note it is actually bigger,although slightly it is a big difference) - the Treo Pro is on a completely different level than the Centro and I liked the Centro. Either way, good luck to all , i guess each devise is to the likes of each individual user but the new device works wonderfully. FYI - also, i am not sure why people hate Winmo so much. Granted Palm OS is simple to use and its difficult at times for change but Winmo does alot more than the outdated OS for Palm. Either way, not here to change anyone's minds just thought my two cents worth was to say I think the new device works great. Have a good one everyone. gee
