Palm Eos Coming to Sprint as Well?

Palm Eos

You didn’t think Palm would sell out on Sprint that quickly and get in bed with AT&T right after the Pre, did you? Palm’s rumored Palm EOS handset, code-named “Pixie” or “Castle”, will be their second to use WebOS after the Pre launches presumably sometime around June 7th. Last we heard of Eos, it would be coming to AT&T, but folks on the inside are saying Sprint will have CDMA version to follow up on the Pre. The purported specs of the Eos, in case you missed them yesterday, are:

  • 4GB storage
  • 10.6mm x 55 mm x 111 mm
  • 100 grams
  • 2.63-inch, 320 x 400 capacitive display
  • Price: $349 before rebates
  • 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 1150 mAh battery (4 hours 3G talk time)
  • Messaging: SMS, MMS (picture and video only), integrated IM client
  • Contact sync with AT&T (NYSE: T) Address Book
  • MediaNet
  • Cellular Video
  • Email: POP3, IMAP4, and EAS support
  • A-GPS
  • Audio: WAV, MP3, AAC, AAC+ ringtones
  • Video Playback: MPEG4, H.264, H.263

As far as a timeline goes, Sprint should be getting this around Q3, complete with EV-DO rev. A data. If AT&T is launching around the same time, it’ll certainly be an interesting holiday season with the two U.S. carriers duking it out price-wise over the Eos.
