The Palm EOS (or Pixie, or Castle, or Mini-Pre, or…you get the drift) was little more than a rumour a few hours ago but now it’s all over the internet like a Paris Hilton bedroom video. Billed as the pre-runner to the upcoming Palm Pre (sort of like Silver Surfer to Galactus), the Palm EOS handset is the successor in it’s own right to the Centro.
The Palm EOS handset comes with a whole range of goodies including 3G and quad-band GSM/HSDPA. We’ll just list the specs so you can get the drooling out of the way

There is still much confusion as to when the Plam EOS will be available and where but keep your head turned to the East and we’ll keep you posted on updates to the Palm EOS handset when we get it.
