Palm Eos due in October?

The Palm Eos smartphone, built by Taiwanese handset manufacturer Compal Communications, is expected to start shipping in October, says a Wednesday DigiTimes report. The GSM/HSPA device is sad to eventually be produced at numbers between 400,000 and 500,000 per month. A CDMA EVDO version of the device is expected to ship in the first quarter of 2010. This latest news supports an earlier report that the handset will first be available on the AT&T network in North America.

The Eos will sport a 2.6-inch, 320x400 mulit-touch display along with a fixed QWERTY keyboard, while its thickness will be just 0.42 inches. The device would slot in under the Palm Pre, losing its Wi-Fi and include just 4GB of built-in memory as well as a 2-megapixel camera. Access to 3G networks as well as assisted GPS and Bluetooth would be retained, however. Pricing remains unknown, but is speculated to reach $99 or less on a contract.
