New Palm Phones, Touchstone, webOS 2.0 Images Revealed?
New Palm handsets may be on the way, according to a German certification corporation which has listed a pair of unknown models in its database. TÜV Rheinland, which had previously revealed GSM versions of the Pre Plus and Pixi Plus (that eventually landed on AT&T), has certified phones with the model numbers P102UNA and P102EWW; the Pre Plus is known as the P101UNA and P101EWW in GSM and CDMA variations, respectively, with P121UNA and P121EWW being the corresponding serial numbers for the Pixi Plus. Pre|central, which first reported the sighting based on one of its forum posts, is also claiming that a new Touchstone model has been uncovered as well.
Unfortunately the original GSM Pre seems to have been designated as the P100UNA, suggesting that the small jump from P101 to P102 (Pre Plus to unknown handset) may only be a spec bump and not a completely new device. Similarly, it appears as if the Pixi only hopped up one serial number (P120 to P121) when appending the Plus to its name.
In other (HP?) webOS news, Engadget has been hand-delivered yet another cache of version 2.0 screenshots, viewable in a gallery located by following the Via link. A quick stroll through the images didn’t reveal much that we hadn’t seen already, but we’ll wait until the experts have broken out their magnifying glasses before definitively reporting that there’s nothing newsworthy here.
