No GSM carriers?

All this talk of the Treo Pro coming out for USA CDMA carriers is nice, but is there going to be a GSM carrier version?
or will the GSM carrier version only be sold unlocked?


Palm will most likely make the Palm Treo Pro come to AT&T sometime in late Q2 or early Q3, it its not sold unlocked before then. CTIA is coming up in the first week of April, so you might get some info by then.


Ok, I will wait to see what happens then.
