Comments on: Sprint Treo Pro Hardware Changes Rumored

Treo ProRumor: While the WebOS-powered Pre may be Palm's most anticipated upcoming smartphone offering, a CDMA version of the Treo Pro for Sprint appears to be the next Palm device that will actually arrive on store shelves. So while many have been expecting the long-anticipated CDMA version the Treo Pro to merely substitute the GSM radio for a CDMA one, details are starting to emerge that the CDMA Pro arriving on Sprint will see a noticeable boost in several key areas.

According to this WMExperts report as well as this TreoCentral article, some leaked Sprint internal training slides are now suggesting that the Sprint Treo Pro has received a few news-worthy hardware and software changes. First off, the Sprint Pro's CPU has reportedly received a nice boost to 528 MHz, a substantial increase over the previous 400 MHz. While the GSM Treo Pro has the highest-clocked CPU in a Palm smartphone to date, some users have reported that it does not feel as snappy in day-to-day usage as its older, Treo 800w brethren clocked at 333 MHz.

800w has more powerful cpu

When you compare a OMAP cpu to a Qualcomm cpu of course the 800w is snappier. If you've even kept up with, Qualcomm cpus are famous for being sluggish and over-delivered.

Did you know the MSM72xx cpu in the Treo Pro should be able to do 3D using AMD/ATI's famous Imageon processor? I bet Palm has no drivers for it as much as everybody else has experienced.

The Treo Pro is definitely a one-off in Palm's line of decent cpus. At least the Palm Pre went with the OMAP3 to continue good cpu performance instead of the driver-less Qualcomm.

That's . Or even, just check out the Touch Pro Performance forum on XDA:
