Palm Eos may come in Q4 2009 after all; CDMA version ready in 2010?

Although analysts think that the Palm Eos (Pixie) is not going to be launched this year, chances are that it will.

Apparently, Compal Communications (the company which will manufacture the Eos for Palm) is ready to ship the entry-level smartphone as soon as October – so AT&T should be ready to launch it before the year’s end.

Initially, only a GSM/UMTS version of the Palm Eos will be produced – about 400,000 – 500,000 units.

Starting the first quarter of 2010, a CDMA Eos will be shipped too, probably for Sprint or Verizon (or both?). Unless some other smartphone shows up in the meantime, the Eos will be Palm’s second device to run on webOS (after the Palm Pre, of course).
