Pro 850 coming to Best Buy
A few leaked digital inventory screen images at an undisclosed Best Buy store location reveal that a couple of smartphones will soon be available at the chain store under the Sprint banner. The first is the Palm Treo Pro 850, which, according to the inventory photos, will retail for nearly $700, presumably not subsidized by a contract from Sprint. The Treo Pro 850 should feature built-in Wi-Fi connection, a GPS sensor, 320x320 resolution touchscreen, full QWERTY keyboard, as well as a 2-megapixel camera.
The other upcoming arrival is the Samsung Instinct handset in pink, adding to the black, white and blue options already offered. While the price is not clear from the photo, the unlocked pink Instinct is expected to fetch the same near $600 price tag of a black Instinct currently offered by Best Buy.
While not reflected in the inventory screen captures, the source of the photos says both the Pro 850 and pink Instinct will arrive at Best Buy on January 25th. [via BGR]
