Next Palm WebOS Phone for AT&T = EOS, Pixie, Castle?

Next Palm WebOS Phone for AT&T = EOS, Pixie, Castle?


I think we all knew that the webOS train wouldn’t end at the Palm Pre, but we didn’t know that this much would come out even before the Pre officially hit the market. We caught a blurry look at what we thought was the Palm Pre Centro yesterday, but it turns out that it’s the Palm EOS.

At least, that’s what the latest rumors are leading us to believe. A couple of other codenames have also been tossed around in the last 24 hours or so: Pixie and Castle. It’s really hard to say whether these are three distinct phones, three variations of the same phone, or just one phone with three names.

What we can tell you is that the rumored Palm EOS handset is reportedly bound for AT&T, quickly expanding Palm’s webOS reach beyond the CDMA realm of Sprint. That’s not to say that Sprint is being abandoned, because a CDMA version of the Palm EOS is also reportedly bound back to Sprint.

Everything is a rumor at this point, but the “leaked” specs on this new Palm smartphone include 4GB of internal memory, 2.63-inch 320×400 capacitive display, 2 megapixel fixed focus camera, Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP, MediaNet, POP3/IMAP4/EAS email support, aGPS, and a $349 after rebate price point.

We’re looking at a Q3 launch for both Sprint (including EVDO rev.A) and AT&T.
