Palm C40, Sprint's version of the Pre 2, is found alive and in usable form
If you look at the images below folks, you might be surprised to see a Palm Pre 2-ish device, but if you meticulously look closer, you’ll recognize that the handset is running on Sprint’s network. Yes people, it’s none other than the Palm C40, which is essentially Sprint’s version of the Palm Pre 2. Actually, the unit in the images is none other than a prototype and was bought from a Palm employee by the team over at WebOSNation.
From the sound of it all, there were no workaround required in getting the smartphone activated and working on Sprint’s network. And on top of that, it seems to be handling webOS 2.2.4 without any major glitches or problems. Rummaging through the handset, it’s quite evident that this was on its way to Sprint, seeing there are some Sprint apps preloaded on it as well.
However, as we all know by now, this handset didn’t make it to the end of the tunnel, but for now, it’s nothing more than a testament of what could’ve been.
