The Register reports that Palm may have given up trying to close the barn door after the horse has bolted, and may be formally announcing the upcoming Treo Pro, their new highly specced GSM Windows Mobile smartphone, today after the device was widely leaked, first from Palm’s own website and then from Chinese Treo forum users.
Of course, leaks could all be part of a well orchestrated plan to stir some excitement in the market. The device’s specs certainly speaks for itself (HSDPA, WIFI, 320×320 screen, 3.5mm headphone jack, 1500 mAh battery) and the styling does not leave much to be desired.
If Palm has been quietly manipulating us, then its all good news, as it would suggest the device will hit market very shortly. We should find out in the next few hours.
