Palm Eos Shipping in October for 2010 Release?

There has been a lot of speculation regarding the Palm Eos, the rumored follow-up webOS device to the Palm Pre. DigiTimes reported that 400,00 Palm Eos devices would be shipping to Palm in October, contrary to an analyst report that the Eos had been pushed back to 2010. If you recall, the Palm Eos found itself on a leaked AT&T presentation with a Q4 release date. Now comes word via an anonymous tipster who has told Pre|Central that there seems to be a little bit of truth in both reports.


According to the report, the Palm Eos will being shipping to Palm in October, but roughly 80,000 units will be shipped and subsequent shipments of the same size will follow in the months after. Now there is no word on whether Palm will make the Q4 release date, so speculation that 2010 is looking more and more like the release timeframe for the Palm Eos. It appears the Palm Eos will land on AT&T first, to be followed by Sprint. This makes perfect sense, as a Palm Eos release on Sprint would cause competition for Palm’s very own Pre.

There is a Palm webOS device in the pipeline, but perhaps the picture will get clearer as we move forward into Q4.
