While the GSM/UMTS version of the Palm Treo Pro is available since late last summer already, Palm and Verizon Wireless' Alltel Wireless now joined forces to bring the EV-DO Rev. A version to North America as well. The Treo Pro is a sleek, full-function Windows Phone that offers business users the ease of use and robust features they demand while providing the reliability and manageability IT departments require. With WiFi, GPS and Windows Mobile Professional 6.1, the Treo Pro helps busy professionals stay connected on the go so they can structure their lives around their priorities without sacrificing work productivity.

The Treo Pro is loaded with support for EV-DO Rev. A data speeds, WiFi for data and GPS capabilities. Users can browse the web and send and receive E-Mails at quick, mobile wireless broadband speeds. Treo Pro is the first Palm phone available with Internet Explorer Mobile 6, with options for either a mobile-optimized or desktop-like browsing experience. Its thin design blends a flush, high-resolution color touch screen and a full QWERTY keyboard with a removable battery that packs up to five hours of talk time and enough strength for the business user's needs, offering a powerful yet effortless mobile experience.

With integrated GPS, Treo Pro offers turn-by-turn directions, maps and point-of-interest searches for locations such as restaurants or stores. Palm's WiFi hardware and software innovations on Treo Pro make it easy to get online fast and manage network connections and power usage. The one-touch WiFi button provides a clean, uncluttered WiFi experience that gets Treo Pro users rapidly connected at home, in the office or in WiFi hotspots.

Treo Pro supports Microsoft Direct Push Technology for up-to-date E-Mail, contacts and calendars. With the deployment of Microsoft System Center Mobile Device Manager 2008, Treo Pro delivers increased security, easier smartphone management and access to information on the corporate network. IT professionals can confidently manage large Treo Pro deployments similar to how they manage PCs.

Treo Pro is the first Palm phone with Internet Explorer Mobile 6, bringing users a new, full-featured, high-quality Flash supported browsing experience. Users can choose to browse in a mobile-optimized mode or in a desktop browser mode. Microsoft brings the mobile web-browsing experience on par with what end users and developers have come to expect from their desktops - the ability to easily view web pages and multimedia on the web and best-in-class capability to complete transactions, from banking to checking in for a flight. Treo Pro helps optimize business processes by mobilizing users with several Palm specific enhancements to the Windows platform, including:

  • Ringer switch - Silences the device immediately
  • Clock and date screen saver - Lets users know at a glance - without turning on the device - what date and time it is and whether they've missed a call or have a new SMS/MMS message
  • New voicE-Mail indicator - The center button flashes to let users know that a voicE-Mail is waiting
  • Dedicated E-Mail and calendar buttons - Fast one-button access
  • Lower Costs, Increased Productivity

Launched last week, the Palm Treo Pro is now available at Alltel Wireless retail stores and online at
