Our review partner Digital Trends tested the PalmTreo Pro. The current Palm phones look like tools from the stone age compared to what is coming next with the Palm Pre, but you might be still interested to see about the Treo Pro if it is worth the money.
Quote from the review: "Even though the sleek and beautiful touch-screen Palm Treo Pro is essentially a minor update of the 800W, its alluring external aesthetic make it feel like a whole new phone. Like the 800W, Palm does a superior job of putting lipstick on the WindowsMobile 6.1 swine behind the Pro's pretty face with a highly sensitive touch screen, and mapped hard keys that limit your need to actually touch the screen. The Pro offers up the now-familiar slate of Windows Mobile productivity and multimedia entertainment options, with mixed results. Bottom line: We wish the operating system matched the Pro's beautiful exterior. And it won't: The Pro is not upgradeable to the coming Windows Mobile 6.5. But for those who need or want a slick Windows Mobile device, you get an easy-to-use smartphone that, at $200, is both easy on the wallet and on the eyes."

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
