Sprint offers the Treo Pro at last

Sprint offers the Treo Pro at last
After a few months of delays and changes in launch dates, we can now tell you that the Treo Pro is available from Sprint after watching Alltel and Bell release their own models of the handset. The long awaited device runs on Windows Mobile 6.1 and is equipped with a 2MP camera, 2.5 inch touchscreen display, QWERTY keyboard,  Sprint TV, and 3G connectivity through Sprint's EV-DO Rev. A network. The device costs $549.99 but a $250 instant haircut and a $100 mail-in rebate bring the final cost down to $199.99 with your signature on a new two year contract. Oh, and to qualify for the rebate, you need to sign up for Sprint's Everything plan. March 15th may soon become a National holiday. Oh, it's a great day to be an American.

I can type on a Curve and even a Pearl! I just can't type on a Treo. The keys are too small.

"...to qualify for the rebate, you need to sign up for Sprint's Everything plan." This is not true. All Everything Data plans (450, 900, or Simply Everything, as well as Everything Data Share 1500 and 3000) qualify; or, one can choose to simply add the $25 data (as opposed to $15 for internet only) to their current plan. The $25 data plan gives access to internet, e-mail, sprint navigation, and sprint tv.

Ever since the iphone did it and Sprint followed with the Instinct and soon to be Pre people want to think this is for every new phone. While the previously mentioned phones have plan restrictions the rest of the lineup need those plans to get the rebate price not to activate them

Wow, I have not been keeping up... I didn't realize Sprints plans were so cheap comparatively. How is it that they still cant gain customers?
