Palm Almost Certainly Unveiling the ”Hawk” Tomorrow

by Reads (7,993)

Palm, Inc. has just sent journalists an invitation to a webcast scheduled for tomorrow. Although the company gives few details on what will be discussed, it is virtually certain that Palm will use this opportunity to unveil the new device — often called the Hawk — that company co-founder Jeff Hawkins has been hinting about for almost two years.

The invitation says, in part:

Jeff Hawkins, founder of Palm, Inc., will host a live video webcast on Wed., May 30, to describe a new category of mobile device. The webcast will follow the announcement of this new product at the D: All Things Digital conference in Carlsbad, Calif.

Neither Fish Nor Foul

Hawkins has been talking since 2005 about his company’s plans to create a third product category that’s neither a handheld nor a smartphone. However, he’s never been willing to say very much about this.

Even this device’s code-name isn’t known, so most people generally refer to it as the Hawk.

Speculation has ranged from it being a UMPC to a web tablet to a portable media player.
