Having trouble getting your hands on the new Pre but still want to show Palm some love? What if I told you that Palm is offering up the Palm Treo Pro, unlocked, and ready to go for only $399? Yep, that’s right, Palm is offering up the predecessor to the Palm Pre unlocked for $399, that’s a price drop of $150. There’s also the option to pick it up on Alltel or Sprint for $199.99 after rebate and contract. The unlocked version sounds like one sweet deal to me. I’m half-tempted to pick one up.
I should mention here, that Amazon has exactly the same offer up for grabs, but what makes this unusual is that the offer is coming direct from Palm itself. No 3rd party store involved here. Looks like they simply want to clean their hands of the whole Treo line for good 🙂
The Palm Treo Pro is a candybar that features a 400MHz processor, a 320×320 touchscreen, full QWERTY keyboard, Win-Mo 6.1, external microSD card slot, WiFi, Blutooth, GPS and 2.0MP camera. The unlocked version sports quad-band GSM with tri-band UMTS/HSDPA support.
For more info or to purchase head on over to the Palm Store.
What do you think? Worth the money? Or now that the Pre is out and about, is the Treo Pro not even worth your time? Sound off in the comments.
