Treo Pro gets Telstra Blue Tick of Approval

Thu Sep 4, 2008 - 9:22 AM EDT - By Jennifer Chappell

I reported on Tuesday that Australians with Telstra would probably be getting their hands on the Treo Pro, and that those who didn't want to go through the expensive carrier would be able to get an unlocked Treo Pro in shops in November.

Today Telstra confirmed the Treo Pro as the first smartphone on the Next G network to be accredited with Telstra's Blue Tick of approval, showing that it's recommended for handheld use in metro, rural and regional areas.

According to Geoff Booth, Telstra's Country Wide, Group Managing Director, Telstra's Blue Tick accreditation is based on thorough device testing and sets Telstra apart from its competition in terms of customer education.

"The Treo Pro combines the benefits of wider coverage on the Next G™ network with the added functionality of a smartphone. Customers will be able to stay connected to their work and personal lives with access to email, calendar, contacts and the web in more places across Australia.
"Business users will enjoy the benefits of Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.1, including access to corporate networks, email and other popular business applications, which combined create a personal computer experience on the small screen accessible in more places while on the go," he said.

Treo Pro has a recommended retail price of $929 and is available on a range of plans, including $0 upfront on an $80 Telstra Business phone plan for 24 months. It will be available exclusively on Telstra's Next G™ network from Telstra Shops and dealers from mid September 2008, online at www.telstra.com, or by calling 1800BUSINESS.
