Treo Pro available for preorder with Alltel
Palm’s smartphone, the Treo Pro, seems to have gained a significant popularity among U.S. business users. After yesterday’s official announcement of the Sprint version of the device, the rumors that the handset would to be released by Alltel today (March 5th) turned out true… partially *UPDATE* - the phone is now available for purchase online and at Alltel Wireless retail stores. The Treo Pro is indeed present at Alltel’s online shop, but right now it is only available for preorder at a price of $199, after an online discount of $195 and a $125 mail-in rebate. A few words on the Palm Treo Pro are enough for you to get the idea of the device – it is one of the latest products of the manufacturer, equipped with a touch-sensitive screen, 2-megapixel camera and running the Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional operating system for business-optimized flexibility.

However, information about when exactly the Treo Pro will be ready to leave the stores is not yet available.

Why is Alltel still getting phones? They're part of Verizon now. Might as well put a Verizon logo on it. It would be a good idea considering Verizon doesn't get very good Palms or they get them after the rest of the world already has them.

In some areas such as mine Alltel and VZW were the only carriers, so Alltel is still business as usual at this time because obvioulsy VZW cannot legally control the entire market for any one given area.

its not part of verizon just yet, but it will be in the next few months. basically, the treo pro is being backdoored into verizon. i wonder how on purpose that is... like since its back doored, we dont have to honor certain pricing agreements or something..

What is vzw going to do with those fams that have the 10 and 20 #'s for each line and how soon before they start flashing phones, will they just start branding all phones vzw?
