Palm P102 Mystery Phone Surfaces in FCC Filing

October 7, 2010, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

HP’s mysterious Palm P102 phone has surfaced in an FCC filing. This suggests that the company might be getting ready for releasing the phone sometime in the near future.

The information obtained from the filing hints that the device is headed for Europe. The handset has been spotted at the FCC with the model number P102UEU. The UEU suffix suggests that the device has UMTS-based 3G for European Union countries. There is a possibility that the Palm P102UEU might be the European version of the Pre2.

Another similar set of unknown Palm handsets with model numbers of P102UNA (UMTS North America) and P102EWW (CDMA) were recently spotted in TÜV Rheinland’s database. So, all the signs are pointing towards an announcement from the company in the very near future.

Meanwhile, additional information about the phone has been uncovered by the PreCentral’s forum members. The information suggests that the phone will be coming with an 1150 mAh battery (exactly the same as the Pre and the Pixi) and the processor of the phone is clocked at 1 GHz. It seems it has exactly the same rear cover (Touchstone-compatible) as the current models.

It must be noted that the FCC label reads 08F-ROAY. The original Pre was the 08F-CASC, as in the “Castle”, so it stands to reason that this may be the Roadrunner device we saw back in August.
