Palm Announces Expanded Treo Pro Availability
Treo Pro, is listed as now being available through tech product distributor giants D&H, Ingram Micro, and Tech Data according to the company's latest Channelsource newsletter. The Pro's SRP is still indicated as the launch price of $549, so the price drop some had speculated was imminent (myself included) is not happening for the foreseeable future.
Palm has also just announced that the Treo Pro is now available in Latin America from carriers in seven countries.
The Pro's Latin American current availability is as follows:
- Argentina (Personal, Movistar, and Claro/America Movil)
- Chile (Entel)
- Costa Rica (ICE)
- Guatemala (Claro and Tigo)
- Mexico (Movistar and Telcel/America Movil)
- Panama (Movistar)
- Puerto Rico (Claro/America Movil)
In the US, the Treo Pro is currently available only as an unlocked handset, as the device remains a no-show in subsidized form on either AT&T or T-Mobile. A CDMA version for Sprint remains in rumorville.
The Treo Pro is Palm's new Quad-Band GSM phone (850/900/1800/1900MHz) with Tri-Band 3G HSDPA/UMTS (850/1900/2100MHz) support.
