The 10.6 mm thick phone was first rumored at the beginning of May when several sites served up images of what looked like a mash-up of the Pre and the Centro, courtesy of Boy Genius Report.
Today Engadget has a PowerPoint slide from AT&T, which dishes out a little more details on what we now know is the Palm Eos. Scheduled for a second half of 2009 release, the Eos packs a pricetag $349 with a $50 mail-in rebate. Measuring 55 x 111 x 10.6 mm and weighing just 100 g, the phone features a 2.63-inch touch screen with 320 x 400px resolution, 4 GB storage, HSDPA, 2 MP camera, a QWERTY keyboard, and A-GPS. Not listed is whether or not the Eos will be running on Palm’s WebOS, however it’s hard to imagine Palm not using its brand spanking new software on any device that’s launched after the Pre.
While it’s more expensive than the Pre, I already love this device. It’s not an iClone and seems to be a little truer to Palm's roots compared to what we’ve seen of the Pre so far. It might be more expensive but in my opinion, it’s definitely better looking. If you had to choose, the Pre or the Eos?
