"A few weeks ago we attended the Palm Treo Pro launch even in London and since then I've been trying to get my hands on a review unit. Finally managed to get my hands on one last Friday and have spent the last few days 'playing' with it. So far I'm quite happy with the Treo Pro, battery life seems really good and I quite like the fixed QWERTY keyboard rather than a slider. The OS is quite fast thanks to the 400MHz CPU and 128MB RAM."

Matt offers a small writeup of the device and then an unboxing video for a closer look at the Palm Treo's hardware and of course, what's in the box. Initially, the WM 6.1 GSM phone seems to be available in the US for an unlocked price of $550. One interesting note that Matt points out is the screen size, 320 x 320, which could cause problems with some software. Look for a fuller review later on. Anyone interested in snapping up the Treo Pro? I've seen some commentators call it "underwhelming" and wonder what our community likes or doesn't about the new Palm.
