Pre Shows Up on Leaked Sprint Roadmap
PhoneNews.com has posted what appears to be an internal comprehensive set of slides which details Sprint's planned 2009 smartphone roadmap. The deck includes a couple of mentions of the Palm Pre and a number of other unannounced devices.
The Palm Pre's slides (posted after the break) list the launch date as TBD Q2'09, which unfortunately isn't any clearer than Palm's standard "first half of the year" response. There are some other interesting details to note though. A couple of code names for the Pre are potentially listed. The device itself is labeled the Palm P100 in one slide and WebOS is referred to as Linux Palm Neutron OS in another.
The Palm Pre slide above also details some specifications that are in-line with previous mentions. The Memory ROM/RAM is listed as 8GB/256MB, while some Sprint apps such as Sprint TV, the Sprint Music Store are confirmed, Sprint NFL is TBD. The battery capacity is listed as 1150mAh, which would confirm the previous rumor, and the GPS is indeed a A-GPS.
There is also listing of 30FPS Video, but this is likely more a reference to playback, as Palm has stated that the device itself will not support video capture at launch. Items left out include a Java client and and expansion slot, to the disappointment of many.
