In a press release today accompanying Palm's first quarter earnings report, CEO John Rubenstein stated the following:
"Due to importance of webOS to our overall strategy, we've made the decision to dedicate all future develoment resources to the evolution of webOS. Which means that going forward, our roadmap will include only Palm webOS-based devices."
This is not necessarily the end of the Treo phone but it sure means Palm is betting all it's cards on the webOS platform. With the announcement of the Pixi, you can see a Treo-esque type design quality to the handset. We would expect all future Palm devices to carry the webOS platform exclusively and give Palm a serious edge in the coming 12 months of devices released with webOS.
