Ultra-thin Palm Eos coming to AT&T for just $99?

This is definitely Palm’s week. A boatload of rumors and stories related to the Sunnyvale company are coming from all over the Web, culminating with this: the second Palm smartphone to run on WebOS is the Palm Eos, a 10.6mm thin handset that will (apparently) be launched by AT&T.

Since it’s bound for AT&T, the Eos is obviously a GSM device – quad-band GSM, more exactly, with HSDPA. Which means it could be also launched in Canada (via Rogers), as well as across Europe.

According to Engadget, the image below shows what the Palm Eos supposedly looks like:

The handset does look like an upgraded Centro, and it’s probably the same device which appeared several hours ago in that blurry picture.

WebOS aside, the features of Palm Eos include:

  • 2.63-inch capacitive touchscreen display with 320 x 400 pixels
  • A-GPS
  • Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP, EDR
  • Music & video players
  • SMS, MMS, built-in IM client
  • 2MP fixed-focus camera with flash and video recording
  • 4GB of internal memory
  • MicroUSB 2.0
  • 1150 mAh battery for up to 4 hours of 3G talk time

It’s said that Palm Eos will be priced at $349 before rebates. According to TechCrunch, the smartphone’s price with an AT&T contract will be of only $99 – not bad at all.

No word yet if the Eos will be sold in the US exclusively by AT&T (like the Palm Pre via Sprint), so T-Mobile might get it too.
