According to a tip sent to the team at precentral.net, Palm could release a WebOS smart phone that forgoes the manufacturer’s penchant for hard keyboards.
The mystery gadget is also rumored to pack a virtual keyboard on a display with a more vibrant resolution -480 x 800 as opposed to Palm’s standard 480 x 320.
Those details are sure to spark off a hunger in WebOS fans who, since the days of the original Pre, have lusted for an all touchscreen webOS phone with a display that rivals the many Android devices, like the Sprint Evo 4G, crushing the market right now.
The ladies and gentlemen at precentral.net have been hot on the trail of elusive new Palm devices since August when they uncovered certification details on two unconfirmed products called the P102Eww and the P102UNA, one of which they expect to be a mild spec update to the existing Verizon Palm Pre Plus.
Ever since HP purchased Palm back in April, much of the talk about products borne from the merger focuses on a tablet PC that runs Palm’s webOS software. But there are plenty of Palm fans out there interested in a large format webOS device that makes phone calls too. Let’s hope the company announces something official before the holiday shopping monster awakes from its 10-month slumber after Halloween.
