Sprint's Palm Treo Pro Available for Pre-Order at Best Buy for $699 Contract-Free

Even though the Palm Treo Pro has been supposedly delayed for Sprint until February 15, Best Buy is now putting the phone up for preorder on its website for $699.

The price is steep, but about normal for a contract-free phone. Best Buy will ship the (currently backordered) Palm Treo out in one to two weeks. Methinks that if you've already waited long enough for the Palm Treo Pro to come out, you might as well wait for the Pre lest you get stuck with the-soon-to-be antiquated Windows Mobile 6.1 software.
