Unfortunately, the source article showing images and specs for a leaked Palm Treo Pro design was removed at WMExperts. That likely means they’re legitimate and of course, all over the web at this point. Part of me hopes that the leaked info wasn’t accurate at all.
While I liked the Palm Centro when I had a hands-on, I see the alleged Palm Treo Pro as a minor revision of that device. More professional looking and a little sleeker yes, but nothing innovative. That may not be a bad thing since Palm has sold over two million Centros by providing a fair amount of bang for buck, but I’m expecting more.
Granted, I’m providing commentary on a device that may not exist, but I’m hoping to see more "revolution" and less "evolution" in Palm’s future. In fact, I’m crossing my fingers that this device is the first to run on a new Palm operating system. It’s been recently reported that Palm has ordered up to 5 million handsets from Compal to be manufactured in 2009 and that they will all run on Windows Mobile, so I’m not getting a warm fuzzy feeling about the "evolution" I’m looking for.
