Max, 29 Mar 2018Oh FFS... if only someone would make a _landscape_ full QWE... moreThere *IS* a landscape QWERTY phone coming. It's available NOW! Look up the Planet Gemini PDA/phone. It looks intriguing but a bit pricey.

Anonymous, 29 Mar 2018So, an actual compact phone?This was a ref of 2012 or something.
I bet with you it'll be another 6incher 18:9 FHD+
4GB RAM/64 GB storage, SD636, 4000 mAh and metal body.

Why not? I loved the PalmOre 2
Merge the Blackberry in it too

Interestingly, elements of webOS are in both android and iOS. Shame users weren’t able to grasp gestures/features of webOS.

It's not a PALM if it's runs on Android,must run on a custom OS than Android

I won't get mad at all if they resurrect Treo 650 (Win10 powered maybe?).

So it will be just yet another Chinese-made Android phone using a previously US brand.

Without WebOS it is not a Palm device, the hardware does not matter, there is already 100s of devices out there with the same OS, let Palm RIP.

Palm Pre was beautiful. Actually the most wanted from me phones were Palm Pre and Microsoft Kin One and Kin Two.

But will it respect our privacy or track & listen 2 us 24/7. The old ones didn't have room for GPS

I would wait impatiently to see that happen ... and buy. I owned Pre 2 and I can tell that it was a marvelous device - good design, amazing OS with multitasking capabilities years ahead of its competition that even current OSs can only dream of as of now and how can we forget wireless charging - even in 2018 there is no such thing common in market and Palm gave you way back in 2010.
Android is a good option but I would really prefer that TCL keeps WebOS in it and does something like BlackBerry10 to have some kind of Android integration to install apps; that would be the best of both worlds. Just a suggestion.

TCL -- Please DO bring the wireless charging back as well. That would be a major selling point.

Max, 29 Mar 2018Oh FFS... if only someone would make a _landscape_ full QWE... moreI know right... the struggle is real.
Although if you wait for the slide keyboard motomod, you could pair it up with the upcoming Z3 play for a banging experience

Oh FFS... if only someone would make a _landscape_ full QWERTY already, which this pretty surely won't be...
