    I think it is fake. Too good too be true... following Palm device history till now... Palm will not so smart making such good device.

    But who knows! maybe they already learn "know how" to make good device.

    If that device really true, then I will buy it, maybe I will miss the keyboard

    I think if this is true,falling short of prototype they are cost cutting by just extending the cavity on the mold with the design features looking just like the latter Treo devices on the face front. I want the same form factor with some fat trimmings but I also would like to see a level screen(i.e. not drop back) and some cool, not sexy(i.e. guys shouldn't use this word) design features with a new choice look with the same form factor. Look at Blackberries new line up of devices...they look sweet, change was definitely good and in the right direction on the cosmetic side for RIM. I want functionality of course but looking good with it would be a plus.

    Good lord, you actually think that looks like a "good device"?

    This is why I love when people say the "gandolf" pics are ugly and yet say this one, that's where it's at. Yikes.

    That's like the dumbest looking thing and still running Frankengarnet? Will the 512mhz processor (Intel? reeaally) make up for the white-lag screens? lol

    Plus who here really thinks the next big POS device will be GSM as opposed, to say I dunno...Sprint where they always get first dibs?

    After the onslaught that we took over the Gandolf, I should be last person to call Photoshop on someone. But because I'm not sure if everyone is simply playing along or considering this as real, please blow it up for yourselves.

    The right side is curved out and you can clearly see the smuge tool in full effect on every line, in particular the lines at the bottom of it. You can also clearly see overlay pixelation on the bottom right portion.

    But if this thread is all in fun, sorry for taking it serious.

    Total photoshop. The buttons at the bottom are lighter than the rest of the device. And here's the thing...why would the keyboard be up on that particular screen? There is no reason to enter text?
    OH-IO!!!

    Fake or real, I have no interest in a Treo without a keyboard. Why in the world would I want to go back to pulling out a stylus everytime I want to send an email?

    I think its incredible that some would find the "gandolf" as not too bad looking, but then go and claim that this wouldn't be a good looking device.

    Its not gorgeous, but a helluva lot better looking than the gandolf. In fact, it looks like something HTC would put out.

    Contrarians are funny.

    This pic wasbrought up in another post last week. It was shown as a fake then, and still holds now.

    One has to love how ciruclar treo pics go though. They always seem to just keep coming back.

    Ah but the ones last week had an antenna and the 650 style D-pad, it seems that they've re-photochopped them but used the 750 or 680 as the source

    I think "первая информация " is the best treo codename since the "ace".

    How is this too good to be true??? Aside from removing the keyboard and enlarging the screen, what has changed. Same ugly, boring form factor, same lame OS. No if this is the future of Palm, then there is no future for Palm

    I think he was referring to the spec. The device doesn't look that great but the spec surely look a lot more appealing, when compared to any smartphone. I don't think the device is real or at least I hope it isn't

    Believe it. There's a funny thing called subjective aesthetic evaluation; people have different tastes. Shocking, I know. But unless you have some sort of scientific metric for beauty* I fail to see how you can prove your point.

    To drop some Kant on yo' ***
    "If he proclaims something to be beautiful, then he requires the same liking from others; he then judges not just for himself but for everyone, and speaks of beauty as if it were a property of things."
    Sounds like you should don your black turtleneck and go work for Apple, since you know what's best. Then you can look down on us who disagree and get paid for it. Now that'll stroke your ego!

    Like the HTC Dash? The HTC Lobster? Real svelte. I mean HTC has some nice devices but they also have some fugly ones too...

    Considering we're debating the beauty of lack thereof between a poor photoshop job (900p) and a Palm prototype device (gandolf), your conclusion is quite funny.


    *Besides just symmetry, and even here, the Moto Q fails as the screen is notoriously off-center.

    What were you saying about a "funny thing called subjective aesthetic evaluation"? What were you preaching about with this so-called beauty metric and respecting those with different tastes? Oh my! Mal, the hypocrisy here is absolutely hilarious!
