Two unreleased Palms

An inside source at Palm has revealed that the company is working on two as of yet unknown devices, codenamed Zeppelin and Skywriter. While little has been unveiled as to the devices' nature, Palm estimates the devices would launch in the third quarter of 2008, according to TamsPPC. Palm is also seeking developers for the platform, setting a deadline of May 30th, with the potential of having the applications comarketed by the PDA manufacturer.

Another insider reveals that a Centro-like Windows Mobile device has also been spotted at Palm, which could either represent the unknown Skywriter device, or merely a Windows Mobile version of the Treo 500.

The devices could also represent Palm's desire to seed a Linux-based operating system into its Treo devices, which would coincide with potential plans to do so by the end of 2008.
