Palm is yet to release its much-awaited Palm Pre phone but there are already reports of another device in the works running the same operating system that Pre is based on.
A new phone from Palm called the Palm Eos is likely to debut on the AT&T network, says Engadget. Palm Eos will run webOS, the new operating system first shown on the Palm Pre earlier this year.
Palm hasnâ€™t commented about Eos but the phone is seen as the successor to Pre. The candy bar style Eos will be slim (about 10.6 mm thick) and will have a 2.63-inch display. It will also be a quadband GSM/HSDPA phone with 4GB storage and a 2 megapixel camera.
The Eos could be priced at $349, excluding a rebate. Check out Engadgetâ€™s photo of the Eos.
Without the slide-out keyboard of the Pre, the Eos looks similar to the BlackBerry Bold.Â The pre-rebate pricing on the Eos seems high for now but if Palm can work with the telecom carrier to bring that down for consumers, it may have a worthy successor to its inexpensive and successful Centro smartphone.
