GSM/HSPA Palm Eos Shipping in October?S

More on the alleged Palm Eos (or Pixie) today. According to reports, Compal is expected to start shipping the entry level and apparently AT&T bound smartphone as early as next month. This comes after rumblings of delays.

About 400,000 to 500,000 of the smartphones, which are again rumored to have a 2.6-inch multitouch display and GSM/HSPA support, are expected to ship a month to Palm.

And is there more WebOS goodness on tap for good old Verizon or Sprint? Seems like Compal will also begin to ship a CDMA/EV-DO version of the Eos to Palm in Q1 of 2010. But let's be honest, there are no promises that it won't just be eons before the Eos actually appears on shelves. [Digitimes]
