Palm Said to be the Next to Target iPhone

New operating system and handset is an effort by Palm to revive its smartphones


It's well known that beleaguered Palm will launch an updated operating system called "Nova" at this week's electronics show in Las Vegas. It's also expected to unveil a new smartphone, one that a source at CrunchGear is calling "iPhone-like" with a large touchscreen:

The new phone will have a full QWERTY keyboard that will slide down under a portrait-oriented touchscreen....The new operating system is described as “amazing” and there will be a full software bazaar on launch. It will have media playback functions along with standard Palm calendar, email, and contact functionality.
