Sprint Palm Treo Pro Delay
Sprint's prematurely revealed CDMA Palm Treo Pro has now been shelved for the near future, an internal company memo shows. After already being pushed back to February 15th, the Windows Mobile smartphone has now been delayed again with a "TBD" (to be decided) timeframe even though some of the marketing material has already been delivered to stores. No reason has been given for the last-minute change.
The gap puts the Treo Pro's release closer to that of the Pre, which is widely expected to launch in May and should replace at least some of Palm's normal high-end phones. The company is already carrying both the PalmOS-based 755p and the Windows Mobile-based 800w.
