Just prior to its big unveiling at CES later this week, a few additional details have been leaked about Palm’s upcoming flagship phone. The new handset will supposedly be a slider with a full QWERTY keyboard and a portrait touchscreen. It will have full PIM support, email support and media playback capabilities. Production of the new Palm will most likely be outsourced to HTC and will launch with a full complement of applications. With the phone being described as “iPhone-like” and the new OS as being “amazing”, we cant help but start to get a little bit excited about Palm’s new offering. Maybe that $100 million equity investment by Bono and company may turn out to be money well spent and we sincerely hope we’re wowed on Thursday. Palm’s efforts leading up to and following the announcement this week will likely end up making or breaking the company as it simply can’t continue much longer on the same track.
