Palm Gandolf specs surface

June 18th, 2007 at 3:09 PM

Remember that hideous new Palm concept that showed up in the wild? The more we learn about the Gandolf, the more we realize that Palm is serious about making the darn thing. Some specs have surfaced to complement the spy shots, and while they are predictably underwhelming, they’re not quite as disappointing as we expected. Check out the specifics below:

  • Naming convention will be Treo 5XX
  • One version with Windows Mobile 6 Standard, the other is a new non-touchscreen edition of the Palm OS
  • Multiple colors
  • 135 grams; 117 x 65 x 13.8 mm
  • 2.4 inch QVGA screen with 65k colors
  • 2 megapixel camera
  • Bluetooth 2.0 w/ A2DP support
  • 3G + HSDPA
  • 256 MB on board memory with 64 MB of RAM

Design foibles aside, these aren’t too shabby. The inclusion of 3G is a huge step in the right direction, and everything else seems to be about on par with their current Treos, with the exception of a marginally improved camera. One thing worth noting is that while Windows Mobile has proven itself useful without touchscreen support, the Palm OS has no such track record. It will be interesting to see how well they’re able to tweak the existing (and aging) platform to do away with touchscreen input. Only time will tell, we suppose.
