Palm Treo Pro
Palm has introduced Treo Pro, a smartphone that looks and feels cool, but is designed for businesses that want to simplify their IT infrastructures and lower costs.
With its streamlined design and Palm shortcuts layered on Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional, Treo Pro seems to have it all. Yet there are a few little things that mess up the dream.
One is the fact you can’t turn the damn thing off, unless you pull the battery out. Even business users like to switch off sometimes! It also isn’t the easiest interface to learn your way around, requiring constant help from the online handbook. The other issue is battery life; when we gave the Pro to a serious mobile user to play with, he reported that after dislocating it from the mains at 8am, it ran out of juice by 1pm. Hmmm. Still, looks pretty.
