Palm Treo Pro to hit Sprint in January?

Palm Treo Pro Sprint Rumor

A claim from BGR today suggests Palm is converting its Treo Pro to CDMA for Sprint. The Windows Mobile smartphone has previously been available only as an unlocked model for GSM networks but would see one of its first carrier deals through an adaptation to the competing standard. Any other changes to the Wi-Fi equipped device are unknown, though the phone would likely use EVDO Revision A given similar support on the existing Treo 800 for Sprint.

The cost of the reported phone as a subsidized item is unknown; Palm sells its unlocked model for $549. However, the CDMA Treo Pro already has a rough launch date estimate of January 11th. Palm also often follows up initial launches with those for other carriers and may produce a Verizon edition as well as equivalents for Canadian providers Bell and Telus.
