Palm T-Mobile Rumors Debunked

Last week, there were rumors abound that T-Mobile would get their first Palm device since the Palm Treo 600. No doubt Palm could benefit from adding carriers and AT&T is almost certain to join the fray in the coming months. According to Forbes, Palm is not getting ready to launch a webOS device on T-Mobile.


According to Macquarie Research analyst Phil Cusick,

“Our checks indicate that Sprint hasn’t seen any pickup since the Verizon launch. We expect AT&T to launch Pre and Pixi in April or May, but with even less marketing support than Verizon, and checks indicate that recent chatter of an impending launch at T-Mobile is not correct.”

At some point, expansion of carriers will only do so much. Palm needs the buzz it had this time last year and a new device might be the only way to get that back.


  1. The Smart thing to do would be to launch a new device on several carriers at the same time and have a GSM and CDMA version of the device.

  2. Or even better, one version that supports both CDMA and GSM.
