Next Palm smartphone out early 2011, says HP
WebOS 2.0 on board?
New Palm smartphones will arrive early next year, HP has revealed.
"You will see us coming early next year with new phones," Senior HP Eric Cador said in Barcelona today.
Cador didn't provide any other details - he was talking more about HP's $1.2bn acquisition of Palm than the new subsidiary's products.
But he did stress that the motivation for the purchase was for HP to get its hands on Palm's WebOS.
HP has already said next year will see the introduction of one or more tablets based on the operating system.
Cador's statement comes hot on the heels of speculation that a new Palm smartphone, codenamed 'Mansion', is in the works and it will drop the company's trademark physical micro-keyboard, relying entirely on the touchscreen and an Android/iOS-like virtual keyboard. ®
Mine's on ebay if anyone wants one. Not sure I'll bother with another - nice OS, but build quality?
Love my Pre
... works great. Battery life is fine under normal use. Multitasking works like it is suppose to. Quality issues ... none. The phone is small, fits conveniently in my pocket. Great phone. Too bad if HP drops the keyboard.
Nothing wrong with 4 hour battery life, case that's plastic so the corners can break off. Only covers you can buy make it look really clunky.
And whoever thought of no confirmation on delete needs shooting - you go to delete an email as another arrived - OOPS.
Keyboard for those with small fingers - I could never use the Q or P keys as the surround was in the way.
AND DON'T GET ME STARTED ON CALL QUALITY - ECHO, ECHO, ECHO
Did I mention, mines for sale on ebay (2 months old, warranty replacement). Would you like another one? Really good. I'll end early for £150.
£56 and 24 hours to go with 28 watchers
I sold it last week for £105, but the numpty couldn't pay as only had postal orders (no thanks).
Hoping for £120.
Just shows that the original Palm folks knew what they were doing with Graffiti.
