Hoping "elegant package" puts it above the rest?

US smart phone maker Palm has launched the latest iteration of its Treo handset, the Palm Treo Pro, which it describes as "an effortlessly usable smart phone for businesses that want to simplify their IT infrastructures and lower costs".

The device runs the latest version of Microsoft's Windows Mobile OS - 6.1 - which the software giant has claimed makes it easier for IT departments to deploy, manage and secure mobiles.

Ed Colligan, president and CEO of Palm, said in a statement: "Businesses want the control and savings that Windows Mobile affords, in an innovative and elegant package that keeps their users happy."

Palm is also hoping the device appeals to consumers with an organisational bent, "who want to stay on top of their professional and personal lives".

The Treo Pro has a touchscreen, full Qwerty keyboard and comes with a removable battery that Palm says is good for up to five hours of talk time per charge. It also has wi-fi and GPS.

The Pro will be available in the UK in September via O2 and Vodafone. Palm added that unlocked Pros will also be available through the Palm online store - for RRP: £399.
