CDMA version of the Palm Eos ticketed for Sprint?

CDMA version of the Palm Eos ticketed for Sprint?
It was just Friday when we told you to say "Hello" to the Palm Eos. Engadget had reported that the device, a successor to the Palm Centro smartphone, would be running on the same webOS software that will be the brains of the Palm Pre. The spec list given to Engadget's source says "Contact sync with AT&T's address book" and the handset has support for the 850/1900 bands. Both of these things add up to the highly probable notion that the Eos will be adorning the shelves of Ma Bell.

Now comes forward "a tipster within Sprint" who told PhoneNews that a CDMA version of the Eos is currently being tested by the pin drop network for a third quarter release this year, after the launch of the Palm Pre. Both versions of the phone will have close to identical specs with the CDMA version having the capability to run 3G over Sprint's EV-DO rev. A network. We get the feeling that there will be plenty of talk about the Palm Eos right up to the date it finally launches. You can be sure that we will pass all of this news on to you as it happens.
