Additional Treo Pro Software and Hardware Details

Treo 850 SpecsFollowing up on today's earlier report and slew of leaked images, even more Treo Pro details are emerging. With the device's core specifications confirmed, a new post by the original tipster Scottymomo has confirmed some of the device's software bundled software as well as some of the particular hardware quirks and memory specifications of the device.

As of this writing, nearly every relevant detail of the long-rumored Treo Pro/850 has been revealed aside from any discussion of its stylus, screen size, pricing, carrier availability and release date. Read on for some further details.

Treo Pro Software and Hardware

  • Includes the 800w screensaver
  • HTC task manager is included (accessible from the today screen)
  • Memory info was listed as:
    Storage Memory Total: 103.05mb
    Program Memory Total: 101.18mb
    Program Memory in use (not sure what was running at the time though): 43.96mb Free: 57.22
  • Comm Manager with options to turn on off Airplane Mode, Phone, BT, Wifi, Microsoft Direct Push, Data connection
  • MicroSD card isn't under the battery but you need to remove the battery cover to insert/eject it (push/push method, similar to the 750 but only accessible with the battery cover removed)
  • Expansion card supports up to 32gb

Red End key turns on the screen, takes you back to the today screen if the screen is on, end hangs up calls (not sure if it turns the screen off, but that might only be available from the power button at the top). Power button at the top turns the screen off and press and hold turns off wireless.

Some apps that showed up in the programs menu included: Adobe Reader LE, Windows Messenger, Java (Esmertec), Internet Proxy, Telenav, Streaming Media (assume this is HTC app), Sprite backup

Treo Pro Detail

32GB microSDHC card support is an encouraging sign, seeing as 32GB fullsize SDHC cards are just trickling onto the market and microSDHC cards are only available up to 8GB at the moment. You can find the full discussion thread here.

Look at that Cannon!

Nice big steel cannon of a stylus in the diagram. Woohoo, sounds like Palm is doing some listening. But that Martian's hand scared me for a moment. Is this unit tested on Mars or is that the Grinch?

BTW, this diagram answers the removable battery Q. Looks like the entire back removes for battery, reset, and SDMicro access. This is a really nice looking device. Kudos to somebody(s) at Palm. More direction like this and we may see some excitement around here again.

I LIKE IT!

That's not a Martian. That's E-Tellurian!

To see if they've renamed it WindowsMobileInfocenter.

Because it's like watching a train wreck in slow motion.

To hear the most recent brilliant comment from Ed.

Because in the back of your mind you still think there may actually be a chance that Nova will be launched.

You've typed it into your browser so many times it was an accident.

You still can't believe the Foleo was canceled.

You're still waiting for a TX2.

For all the witty comments!

Because it's like an abusive relationship and you just know if you stay in it long enough s/he'll change.

... because of the nice people here,
still believing Palm will not sink,
still hoping Palm will show some more respect for his loyal customers, supporters and developers (hi Dmitry, we are all with you!)

It's just like the Star Wars thing: I still hope that some day something good will come out. But it's delusional, of course, as Palm like Star Wars sinks more and more into oblivion.
As former Palm user how can I get excited about another windows clone?

BTW I've moved on to the HP 114 as my main pda. Frankly I think windows mobile is a dysfunctional OS, something I can live with but definitely not love.
