Next Palm to drop physical keyboard, says mole

Touchscreen only to take on iPhone, Android

Intelligent flash storage arrays

Here's one for you three Palm fans: the latest entirely unsubstantiated but issued by a "very reliable" source rumour has the HP subsidiary releasing a touchscreen-only smartphone, possibly as early as this very month.

The rumour-monger, cited by PreCentral, says that the device, codenamed 'Mansion' - will sport a 480 x 800 display and... er... that's as much as (s)he says.

Corroboration of a sort comes from the original Pre, which was codenamed 'Castle', and the presence of virtual keyboard code in Palm's WebOS 2.0 operating system. All current, WebOS 1-based devices have physical keyboards. But that evidence, such as it is, is highly circumstantial. ®
