Alright, this is just getting silly
. Either Palm's much rumored -- and quite
anticipated -- 700p
is the worst kept secret in the industry, or
the fakesters are getting a whole lot better. The newest pics are from a supposed Verizon employee, and shed light on
that logo a bit below the Verizon branding on the back. Turns out it says "Access powered," which could be
good news for those waiting for an update to the aging Palm OS, or it could merely mean that Access is getting its
branding out on Palm OS 5 devices while they continue to work on ALP
. Our fingers are crossed for ALP, but here's a better idea: why
doesn't Palm/Verizon/Sprint/someone just release the dang device and let us find out for ourselves?
