Unboxing video and shots of the new Palm Treo Pro

The Palm Treo Pro was announced a couple of days ago and I received an evaluation unit yesterday. Unfortunately, I cannot post a review of the device until next week, but in the meantime I wanted to post my unboxing video below and a couple of out-of-the box photos for you to check out. I don't shoot videos of all of my unboxings, just the ones that are a bit unusual and as you can see in the video below Palm did a great job with the packaging on this device.

I am collecting questions from readers in my earlier post and will take a look here too if you post questions you want answered in my review. I will be in Singapore over the next couple of weeks, but should have full net access to post my review so stay tuned for that.

Some of my first initial thoughts of the device are that it is much glossier than I anticipated, the width and thinness are just about right and feel good in your hand, I don't like that the Palm threaded SMS implementation was removed for the Windows Mobile 6.1 version (I find it less attractive with fewer features), the keys are very Centro-like with a bit more spacing, and the 3G reception is much better than what I saw on the iPhone 3G.
