Dell Offers Treo Pro For Only $475

Unlocked Palm Treo Pro Available From Dell For Only $475 – You Save $74 or 13.5% Off Normal Suggested Retail Price

Treo Pro - Dell Offer

Just a couple of days ago I was rather excited to be able to announce that the Treo Pro is now available to buy directly from the Treonauts Store priced at $549.95 with the bonus of a bundled free SPE Micro USB Sync & Charge Cable valued at $11.95 – something which I personally found to be a great deal.

Now while doing some research on the web this morning I stumbled upon an even better offer which has the Treo Pro at Dell priced at only $475 (before tax) – an incredibly low price that gives you a full $74 (13.5%) off Palm’s official retail price and makes this (even after tax of between $20 to $40 where applicable) without a doubt the current best deal to get your hands on the “Super Hot” Unlocked Treo Pro (see my review).

I don’t know how long Dell will be keeping the offer live nor exactly why they are so aggressively promoting this Windows Mobile Treo Pro but I’m evidently delighted to see this level of commercial support from such a well known brand – a support that makes it both easy and much cheaper to get your hands on this absolutely terrific smartphone.

Although this is clearly a great offer, one area where Dell’s website remains rather poor however (understatement) is when it comes to Treo Pro accessories and Windows Mobile Software so below you’ll find some of my top recommendations.

Editor’s Choice Accessories for Treo Pro

 Treo Pro Case - Incipio ORION Treo Pro Case - Body Glove Treo Pro Case - Swiss Mobility

Treo Pro Cases (above from left to right)

  1. Incipio ORION Sleeve Case
    My very top choice.  High quality leather that fits like a glove, looks great and protects my Treo Pro from scratches.
  2. Body Glove Side Case
    One of the most popular current cases and my top choice to keep your smartphone by your side.
  3. Swiss Mobility Legion Smartphone Case
    A versatile and very high quality case that offers space for more than just your smartphone thanks to a number of built-in pockets.

 Treo Pro Car Charger Treo Pro Memory Card Treo Pro Sync Cable

 Jabra BT530 New Jawbone Jabra BT3030

Treo Pro Bluetooth Headsets

  1. Jabra BT530
    A new headset that I have been extremely impressed by and that I currently use on a daily basis.  Superb noise cancellation, a dedicated On/Off switch and a microUSB charging connector combine to make this my preferred choice for the Treo Pro.
  2. New Jawbone
    Without a doubt the best-in-class noise cancellation headset available on the market today and the #1 bestselling BT headset for the Treo Pro.
  3. Jabra BT3030 Stereo Bluetooth
    Given that the Treo Pro now offers a 3.5mm stereo headset I have found this Stereo Bluetooth Headset to be by far the most convenient choice for the Treo Pro and it also happens to offer excellent value.

 Treo Pro Battery Treo Pro Cleaning Cloth Redfly for Treo Pro

  • Palm Treo Pro Battery
    A replacement battery for your Treo Pro that will conveniently double your work and talk time wherever you go.
  • 3M Microfiber Cleaning Cloth
    Thanks to this cleaning cloth that I always keep in my pocket I can quickly wipe fingerprints, dirt and oils to keep my Treo Pro shiny at all times.
  • Redfly Mobile Companion (On Sale – Only $199!)
    Thanks to the recent massive price drop of the Redfly Mobile Companion from $399 to only $199 this unique device has quite literally been flying off the shelves but is due to be back in stock in the next couple of days.

So has Palm just given up on its own operating system as a business platform? Why isn't the Treo Pro available in Palm OS? It is so much simpler and superior to anything MS has come up with (too many steps to do simple things). As a long term Palm user (Palm III, Vx, Tungsten E, Treo 650) I've very frustrated that only the Centro is available in Palm OS. I've recently switched to an iPhone which I really like... but don't LOVE as much as the Palm.

Ok, Palm is still in its "couple of years in the desert" stage regarding OS development. The current, Palm OS, aka Garnet, can't support most of the features we see in the Pro and other current smartphones--no HSDPA, no WiFi, probably no GPS. So if you set out to build a device running Garnet with the Pro's hardware, you end up with a Centro in a slightly different form factor--and no clear market angle for it to be different from the Centro. Plus, with more expensive components, the price is higher--which is why the Treo 755 has been EOLed in favor of the lower-margin, higher-selling Centro.

So Palm will (next year) have 3 product lines: the Treo (which is supposed to become Windows Mobile only); the Centro (which will only run Garnet) and devices running Nova, the new OS that Palm has been working on for a couple of years now. At that point, we may see enterprises that have bought fleets of Palm OS Treos go for Nova devices as a replacement, if they want to stick with a compatible platform. Unfortunately, too many corporate types buy into the line that "you can't go wrong buying Microsoft"--or else go for BlackBerries.

Has anybody heard if Verizon is working on a relaeas of the Pro anytime soon. I have talked to 4 different Verizon Reps and none of them have heard about the pro. They keep trying to sell me the Blackberry Storm. I am in a pickle. My company discontinued their wireless synch server license for palm as of 10/1/08. Now I can't get my e-mails or calandar. I am thinking about jumping on the Dell Deal!!!

Enough of the whinning already about why Palm is releasing WM phones. You will get your palm platform or Nova soon.. You guys are starting to sound like all those iphone complainers. Stick behind the 'company', if not just zipp it already. Its getting a little old. GO WINMO!!!!!!!!

by David | Oct 12, 2008 12:46:47 PM

Jim, Palm is planning on having three phone models. The Treo, which will have Windows Mobile, the Centro, which will have the old Palm OS (not sure how much longer that will be around), and a third model, yet unnamed, which will have Palm's new OS. There no telling when it should be out, but rumors are late this year to mid 2009.

I understand your frustration, since I would really love a new Palm OS phone. I do understand, though, that it takes a long time to develop it the way a Palm OS should be and Palm needs money now. This is why they're releasing Centros and Treos with the old Palm OS and WM. The Centro was pretty popular and I'm sure the Pro will be too. Since all they really have to do is design a cool case and maybe tweak the software a bit, it's less expensive for them to get these out the door to get money coming in.

This will also help them to build brand loyalty. Those who have bought these Palm products will think, "Hey, I really liked this thing, but WM was a bit annoying and Palm OS was a little outdated. I think I'll buy the new Palm OS. They build great phones, I'm sure they'll have a great OS."

I ordered a Treo Pro on Friday the 10th. Well it was shipped and set to be delivered on Monday, the 13th. Well Dell stopped the delivery and has had it shipped back to them. Rep told me that the manufacturer had recalled the item. Rep did not have any more info. I asked if I could order another, but of course was told I could not.

I dont know if there is something wrong with the Pro all together, if there is something wrong with the Batch that Dell has, or if Palm just cut Dell off since they were undercutting them, but I was upset!

by Jack | Oct 14, 2008 3:18:38 PM

@Jr3153, that's really interesting. I just went to the Dell site and was able to add one to a cart. If they were having issues one would think they would stop you from buying them in the first place. Your check didn't bounce did it? :-)

by Jr3153 | Oct 14, 2008 8:19:18 PM

LOL, No, in fact I am still waiting for them to refund my money! I also was able to add it to the cart yesterday evening. I too find it really interesting. I agree that it could be Dell lying to me, however I just find it odd that Dell a) Already has my money, and b) are very eager to give me my money back and not let me order another. I mean seriously, had they never shipped it, or it had broken during shipment, wouldn't they just ship me another and keep the sale? I mean I never asked for a refund, they informed me it was already in the process.

Hi, everyone,
I ordered my Palm Treo Pro from Dell on 10/11/08 and received it on Tuesday, 10/14/08, no problems.

by Jr3153 | Oct 15, 2008 12:32:18 AM


Thank you for responding. So far you are the only person to respond saying that they ordered from Dell and received it. Congrats by the way. I did a little research and I saw where this has occurred to Dell Customers before where it ships, but is then recalled. The only difference I have seen is the others had their product reshipped to them, and I was immediately told that I would be refunded. Oh well, I am putting this to bed on the Treo sites, as I believe it to be an issue with Dell and Me and nothing to do with the Treo Pro. I just wanted to help people avoid an issue if possible. Thanks again for the information.

It is obvious that your thoughts reflect a lot of other people’s opinions also. I take pleasure in analyzing your posts each morning. http://www.fmheroes.org/t-amp_19_1.htm
