Unveiled earlier as the Palm Treo 850w and even somewhat confirmed by Palm last week already, today Palm officially announced its latest Windows Mobile smartphone, the Palm Treo Pro. With its streamlined design and Palm shortcuts layered on Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional, the Treo Pro is a combination of sleek simplicity and robust productivity by featuring quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE and triband UMTS/HSDPA, WiFi b/g, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR and GPS capabilities.
The Palm Treo Pro has 256 MB ROM and 128 MB RAM which can be expanded with microSDHC memory cards, up to 32 GB. While the device lacks a front facing camera for video telephony, it features a 2.0 megapixel main camera on the back.

The removable 1500 mAh lithium-ion battery is said to give up to to 5 hours talk time and up to 250 hours standby.

"Businesses want the control and savings that Windows Mobile affords, in an innovative and elegant package that keeps their users happy. That's where Palm comes in," said Ed Colligan, president and chief executive officer, Palm, Inc. "Everything about Treo Pro - from the hardware design to the packaging and accessories - embodies the elegant and simplified end-to-end experience that our customers expect from Palm."

The Palm Treo Pro will be available in September in Europe through Vodafone (from free to 399 Euro with contract) and O2 (pricing is available from O2 direct sales and online business stores) and in Australia through Telstra (from free with contract). It will be available in the United States in the fall through the Palm online store as well as select Internet, retail and enterprise resellers for a suggested retail price of US$ 549. The U.S. version is unlocked and unsubsidized, giving end users the flexibility to simply insert their existing active SIM card and immediately start using their Treo Pro without a new contract. Additional Treo Pro availability is scheduled to follow worldwide.
