Palm is said to introduce new Nova phone with slide-down keyboard and large touchscreen at CES 2009

This is just plain mean, in just few days before CES 2009 open on January 8th, we once again being teased with the possibility of a new Palm Nova phone to be introduced along with the Nova OS "new-ness".

John Biggs from CrunchGear posted up information from a trusted source surrounding the latest Palm smartphone to run the new Nova OS: "The new phone will have a full QWERTY keyboard that will slide down under a portrait-oriented touchscreen."

Still according to his source, the new operating system is described as "amazing" and "iPhone-like". Even further reveals there will be a full software bazaar on launch... like Apple's App Store & Android Market.

I don't want to put my hopes way too high in the cloud on this rumor, but I'm more than pleased to know that Palm still able to generate a quite great deal of buzz and make bloggers start to talk about Palm prominence once again. Like for instance these two encouraging comments from two famous tech blogs:

  • Matthew Miller (ZDNet): "If this new design is real and it runs a much more optimized and current OS, then Palm could really have a winner on its hands. You know that I will definitely be buying one since I have a place in my heart for Palm and like the latest and greatest devices."
  • Darren Murph (Engadget): "We can't help but say that we're pretty jazzed to hear positive vibes flowing just before CES really gets in gear, but we'll attempt to remain placid until something a touch more concrete is revealed."
