Sprint makes CDMA Palm Treo Pro official

Palm Treo Pro at Sprint

Sprint early Thursday became the first US carrier to officially pick up the Palm Treo Pro. The provider-locked version is also the first switch from GSM to CDMA and uses Sprint's EVDO network for its 3G data but is otherwise close to the major overhaul of the company's Windows Mobile 6.1 flagship, which includes both GPS and Wi-Fi as well as a 2-megapixel camera and microSDHC card storage up to at least 8GB. The Treo Pro is Palm's slimmest device until the Pre but continues to include both a touchscreen and a full QWERTY keyboard.

In its Sprint-specific guise, the new Treo supports much of the carrier's special services, such as its streaming Internet TV, the online Sprint Music Store and its NFL Mobile Live football feature. Sprint sells the phone today on a two-year contract for much lower than the unlocked GSM version and offers it for $250 for anyone with a Simply Everything plan or a data-capable pack like the Data Premier Pack or the Pro Pack. Contract-free pricing is the same $550 as for the GSM edition.
