Palm Centro + webOS = AT&T’s PALM Eos?
April 30, 2009 | Uncategorized | 1 Comment|
I am really liking the Palm Pre, and I am really liking the new PALM webOS that it will be coming with! And now it looks like AT&T might like it too! Engadget has got the goods on the PALM Eos possibly coming to AT&T. I would have much rather have seen the super sexy PRE come to AT&T but it looks like Sprint has that wrapped up, so instead, AT&T will most likely sport the Palm Eos. Check out the goods:
- 4GB storage
- 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
- Cellular Video
- Email: POP3, IMAP4, and EAS support
- Audio: WAV, MP3, AAC, AAC+ ringtones
- Video Playback: MPEG4, H.264, H.263
So heads up to all the AT&T people out there still writing nasty letters to PALM for not showing more carriers the PRE Goodness, because the Eos looks to be a really nice “me too” for AT&T to get in on the webOS crazy that’s sweeping the nation! Well not exactly, but we think it’s pretty cool from what we’ve seen of it anyway!
If this phone exists and WebOS pans out to be good, I will buy this phone for sure. I’m a big fan of that form factor, and a nice thin light smartphone with front-facing qwerty and a big capacitive touchscreen would be really really good.
