A simple proof that Palm is not dying: Treo Pro

It only took three vaguely blown-up screenshots taken from some kind of presentation slides, to make the tech weblogs and websites, not to mention bloggers; are all hyped and mentioning the newly called Palm Treo Pro.

And then not long after that, a bountiful of
live shots is posted and make a firmer confirmation on the upcoming arrival of the formerly known as Palm Treo 850w.

Now we know why did Palm has
placed orders of new different mobile phones to manufacturer Compal Comm., which is rumored to be in huge volume up to 5 million units. So these whole shebangs are actually a solid news we can hope to become into a reality.

Who said Palm is dying? Who said mobile users are not interested in Palm's smartphones anymore? If it so, then why all the fuzz of this Treo Pro?
In physical and exterior design, Treo Pro is like a cross over breed from Treo with Centro. The navigational ribbon buttons is the latest trade mark of Palm's design, and the QWERTY keyboard is not different at all from Centro's. But one of the most exciting part to see, is the thin body of Treo Pro. Could it be more slim than Centro?

With more
features packed inside, I wish it is:
  • 400Mhz CPU
  • 256MB ROM, 128MB RAM! (Other reports show “In use: 43.96mb, Free 57.72mb)
  • 320x320 screen
  • GPS
  • Full Tri-band 3G, Quad-band GSM
  • 2 Megapixel camera
  • microUSB connector
  • 3.5mm Earphone connector
  • 1500mah battery

Personally, I'm hoping Palm will squeeze more power-horse specs inside Treo Pro. Isn't its initial code number/name: Treo 850w, is a quick indication that this newest model should be more superior than the not so long ago released Treo 800w?

I'd love to see speedier processor (500MHz or up), bigger sized ROM (at least 512MB) and higher megapixels in the camera's resolution. And what we all will enjoy more, is a specially customized Windows Mobile 6.1 just like in Palm 500v. The unique "Carousel" UI has definetely the one thing that seperates it from other WinMob smartphones, it's a Palm thing. Dont' you think so?

But I guess we'll have to wait and see whether or not Palm is really gonna release Treo Pro a.k.a. Treo 850w, I really-really hope these all rumors are true. Because we all have been tired of taking too many grain of salts...
