We’ll keep the rumor flag on this one but you can pretty safely mark it down as done. Since we first scooped the Treo Pro back in May, the consensus has been consistent – it’s kind of sweet, for a Palm. Those who have used the handset can attest however, it really is a significant improvement over prior Palm handsets. Rumblings of a CDMA variant of the Treo Pro have been making their way around the interweb for a while and BGR ninjas are now finally able to essentially put the speculation to bed. There is indeed a CDMA version on its way and it’s headed for the little yellow engine that could. Sprint customers will be able to get their mitts on the latest Palm come January of next year. The date, tentatively for now, is January 11th. We would certainly expect Verizon to follow suit with a Treo Pro of its own, though for the time there are no new details regarding Big Red. As for pricing info from Sprint, you’ll know as soon as we know.
