Palm Gandolf is Treo 800?
An anonymous source has leaked further photos of the Palm "Gandolf," the rumored budget smartphone meant to compete with the likes of the Motorola Q. The phone's final name is said to be the Treo 800, not the 500, and it is described as having a much smaller shape that the existing 650, complete with a smaller keyboard that has soft, translucent keys.
The tested phone runs the Garnet OS as previously suggested, but notably, the source claims that the 800 does in fact have a touchscreen, rather than the basic LCD that was once ascribed. Also, if the new name is correct, there is a discrepancy between earlier Gandolf specifications and those for a rumored non-Gandolf 800, which has better camera, memory and operating system figures.
