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."
