As we've been hearing, some Sprint stores will most likely have the Treo Pro available this coming Sunday, January 25th. WMExperts let's us know that the Palm Treo Pro is available to order Now online via Sprint's website.

As expected, we see $549 for the Treo Pro, minus $200 for a contract and another $100 fora mail-in rebate, which totals $249. Malatesta points out one caveat on the mail-in rebate; read the fine print to make sure your current plan qualifies.Although not exactly confirmed, it looks as if the Treo Pro has 96MB RM and 512MB ROM. If true, Palm has doubled the available storage memory for programs, with a total of about 336MB. Malatesta says:

On the other hand, RAM may have taken a hit, meaning you may only have ~42mb of RAM after a soft reset. (See page 363 of the user manual --> .pdf). We're working to confirm this last part, so take with a small grain of salt. And yes, it's okay to pray that it's not true.

Mal says that the Sprint Treo Pro is running the Qualcomm MSM-7501a processor at 528mhz and has a 1500mAh battery. Nice.

I bet the orders will be pouring in on Sprint's website today. I read over in the forums that one forum member has already put in an order. ;-)

Update: Reports coming in that Sprint has taken the product page down.

Update: Sprint has contacted us and let us know that they inadvertently posted info on the Treo Pro and apologize for any inconvenience caused. Sprint says that they look forward to welcoming this exciting, new device into their portfolio as soon as it has been approved through our customary testing process. And added that they'd share details on the correct availability date as soon as the standard testing of both the device and its interaction with their network has concluded.
