Could this be the new Treo form factor, an entirely new Palm branded device, or some sort of cruel joke concocted by Palm’s design team? For the sake of Palm lovers everywhere, we hope it’s the latter. This aesthetic abomination is Vodafone-branded, and appears to be running Windows Mobile standard, leading us to believe that this is the first Palm phone without a touchscreen interface. Nothing else is known, but rest assured that more details should surface in the the near future. Until then, I suggest we petition Palm to go back to the design room. Please. This thing looks worse than the i-mate JAQ.
