Say "Hello!" to the Palm Eos

This article contains unofficial information.
Say
Not that it is official now, but at least the image of the next webOS phone is not that blurry this time. According to Engadget, the webOS-powered successor of the Centro will be called the Palm Eos and the cool thing is we have a lot of information regarding the hardware specs of the device. Like we said earlier, the new handset will be quite thinner than its big brother, the Pre, being just 10.6 mm/0.42 inches thick. A touch-sensitive screen is a must-have these days, of course, and in this case we have a 2.63-inch capacitive display with a resolution of 320x400 pixels. Not bad at all.


So far so good, but we also have a surprise for the AT&T customers here – the Palm Eos seems to support the 850/1900 bands. In addition, the spec list given by the source clearly says that “Contact sync with AT&T Address Book” is also present, so it seems AT&T will be selling the device in the US. Other features include 2MP flash camera, Bluetooth 2.1, A-GPS support, 4 GB of internal storage and naturally - integrated e-mail and IM clients. The most probable price for the next webOS handset has also been mentioned, it will sell at around $349 before rebates. Still, do not make haste to stash away your money, since it´s far from being clear cut yet. We hope to hear more of the Palm Eos soon enough and you’ll be the first to know when we do!

Looks like Sprint will be launching the Eos as well. My guess is we will hear about this hitting VZW a well to replace the Centro for all three carriers. http://www.phonenews.com/palm-eos-coming-to-sprint-after-pre-launch-7742/

Why did they put this ugly silver blob in the middle of the screen. It's a shame that the UI is so good, but the phone's really aren't that pleasing to look at. In fact, prior to now palm phones have all been ugly - except to strange palm fan boys.. strange lot. WebOS + Samsung = happy days. Although, htc have had a lot of recent design sucess too...

This is just a rendering so the actual device should look a little better. The "blob" is the same one that is on the Pre but it just looks weird on this one and makes for an odd screen res. I'm with you on the UI and the entire OS for that matter but this is not appealing to me like the Pre is. The fact that there is no Wifi and half the internal storage are deal breaks for me but anyone with a Centro now may like it. Also I'm sure people will work on porting WebOS to HTC and other smartphones just like you now with Android.

i didn't even realise it didn't have wifi etc, i just took for granted that it would. No wifi, what point is there in producing this phone? And yeah, i accept the use of the middle swipey blob thing, but silver? Why would anyone do that?? lol
