Palm may not have announced it, but a new device called the Eos has been spotted on the Internet. It's thin, it's sexy, and it just might be more exciting than the Pre.
Palm may not have announced it, but a new device called the Eos has been spotted on the Internet. It's thin, it's sexy, and it just might be more exciting than the Pre.Kudos to Engadget for scoring this one. Not only has a picture been made available, but a nearly complete spec sheet, too. So far, I like what I see. A lot.
According to Engadget's source, the device is a bar-style phone similar to a BlackBerry. It has a full QWERTY keyboard, trackball for navigation, and measures a mere 10.6mm thick.
Unlike the Pre, this will be a GSM phone, and information points to a release via AT&T. It has quad-band GSM/EDGE radios, as well as 850/1900 HSDPA for AT&T's 3G network. It will also have a 2.63-inch, 320 x 400 capacitive display.
Other specs include:
Price: $349 (pre-rebate)
Camera: 2 megapixel fixed focus digital camera and flash / video capture
Connectivity: Bluetooth 2.1 w/ A2DP and EDR, USB 2.0 via micro USB
Removable 1,150 mAh battery (4 hours 3G talk time)
Messaging: SMS, MMS (picture and video only), integrated IM client
Contact sync with AT&T Address Book
Email: POP3, IMAP4, and EAS support
Audio: WAV, MP3, AAC, AAC+ ringtones
Video Playback: MPEG4, H.264, H.263
Those details paint a pretty exciting picture. I'd like to see a better camera and more storage on board a device such as this, but it's obvious that Palm is trying to keep the price point low.
For now, there's no official word from either Palm or AT&T on this one.
