Treo Pro to Gain Another Outlet in Canada??

Thu Apr 2, 2009 - 4:28 PM EDT - By Annie Latham

Looks like the Treo Pro will be gaining some additional traction up in RIM country. Per a story by Michael Bettiol of The Boy Genius Report (BGR), TELUS, one of Canada's leading telecommunications companies, is slated to begin selling the Windows Mobile-based Treo Pro sometime soon.

Their source was apparently some ads that have appeared in several newspapers across Canada. While the expanded availability is being celebrated, the anticipated pricing could be an issue with the TELUS Treo Pro selling for $50 over Bell Mobility's price. You may recall that in February, Palm announced the availability of the Treo Pro on Bell Mobility's high-speed mobile network (EV-DO Rev. A), marking its debut in Canada.

BGR also noted that the TELUS ad lists 3-year contract pricing, which could be an issue.

You'll also notice that TELUS has the Treo Pro right in the middle of their smartphone offerings, with the BlackBerry Pearl and Pearl Flip on the lower end and the BlackBerry Storm at $50 more on the higher end.
