The images below were provided to us by an industry source without any further information:
I can offer the following two theories ordered by their likeliness:
We are looking at a WebOS skin
The final version of Palm’s Pre lacks a Global Find button (the original Compal design still had one, which means that Palm failed to complete it in time) and has different application icons. Thus, we are likely looking at the first images of a product which emulates the WebOS look&feel on existing Palm OS devices.
We are looking at a WebOS Centro
The Centro’s form factor is one of the few successes Palm has had as of late…which means that they are very unlikely to give up on it. A WebOS Centro is thus very likely in the works as I type this (the OS can be tested on current-gen hardware except for the multitouch) – the question is if the images above are the real thing…
Either way, this is cool news – stay tuned for further info as we get it!
