Internet Security Threat Report 2014

It's only a day later than anticipated, but Palm has now launched the Treo Pro. Available SIM-free or from Vodafone, the new-look smartphone is somewhere between the Centro and the iPhone 3G.

It does indeed pack in tri-band 3G UMTS connectivity with HSDPA, and provide GSM, GPRS and Edge as a back-up.

Palm's Treo Pro: watch out, iPhone?

If that's not sufficient, the Pro has 802.11b/g Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.0+EDR. There's a two-megapixel camera on the back with 8x digital zoom. It has a GPS chip too.

The handset sports a 320 x 320 touchscreen display that's flush with the face of the phone. Behind it sits 256MB of memory, 100MB of which is available to the user. More can be added with Micro SDHC cards - it'll take 32GB cards.

The Pro is based on a 400MHz Qualcomm MSM7201 processor running Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional.

The 114 x 60 x 13.5mm, 133g handset has a 1500mAh battery good for up to five hours' talk-time, Palm claimed.

The Treo Pro will be available in the UK in September through Vodafone from free on contract. O2 will be selling it too. An unlocked version will also be made available, for £399 including VAT. The handset will also be available in the US in the autumn, and in Australia through Telstra.
