They say that the Nova OS is "amazing" and will have an app store at launch. And it'll have media playback (uh, kinda like every other smartphone OS). The touchscreen is portrait-oriented—CrunchGear calls it "large," but a screen that's large for Palm and for everybody else has historically been fairly divergent. That said, it's being sourced to HTC, so maybe it'll be legitimately biggie-sized, at least 480ishx600ish. The more life-like mockup comes from Rob at BoingBoing Gadgets, created "assuming that Palm has no imagination."
I'm hoping it really is amazing, but I guess we'll see on Thursday. [CrunchGear]
