A new Palm branded mobile device has been spotted in newly posted public FCC fillings. First spotted by the site, Android Police, the documents make numerous references to a Palm PVG100 model submitted by a company called the Palm Ventures Group, Inc.
The Palm PVG100 could very likely be the first new Palm branded device to launch since the brand went into retirement following HP's decision to retire the Palm product line in 2011. Rumors have been circulating every few years that TCL, which acquired the branding rights to the Palm name back in 2015, is planning on releasing new hardware under the Palm brand on modern hardware.
A further dig in the document list reveals some new details and hints about the potential relaunch of the Palm brand and new Palm devices in 2018.

Keyboard? Stylus? Me too?

How much excitement from a …… FCC wi-fi certification :/
Anyway, if they make just a 'me too' Android phone with some Palm branding - they are DOA IMHO. However, they have track record with Blackberry brand & devices preserving the distinguishing feature - hardware keyboard. So one can hope they will have a Palm-branded device with a hw kbd too. Like a Pre / Pixi with Android. Or one can dream that they have both hardware keyboard and stylus. Like a Treo / Centro with Android. That will probably distinguish them much better, even with no cutting edge specifications.
But we will probably keep dreaming …..
