Pic of the Zire 73?

Reported on PDA247 and Engadget, this mockup pic of the Zire 73 has turned up at TecnoPalm (Spanish language site) and TomPDA.com (which I couldn't get to work). Reportedly has bluetooth AND wifi, which would be about freakin time. Other reported specs are 64 megs RAM, 320x480 screen, 1.3 megapixel camera, and Cobalt. Engadget's got their fake sense tingling, but who knows?

Am I wrong, or didn't Palm say something recently about not releasing any Cobalt devices this year?

It's fake. The guy who did the mockup over on 1SRC even apologized for the quality.

Thanks Jeff for the clarification. It is not a bad mock-up though!

'Tis the season. There's nothing like people trying to be the "first" to release new Palm info that brings out the Photoshop in people. It's kind of fun determining which "leaks" are true and which are false.

Regardless if PalmOne/PalmSource and/or the PDA market goes under, these devices have really touched a lot of people around the world.

I'd buy one of these.
Not sure Cobalt is a desirable feature, though.

A palmOne with an silkscreen 'extended' keyboard built-in? Sure....
It would be cool, and if the next device has Bluetooth & Wi-Fi it would be better; like you said ignatz, it's about time.
I wonder if palmOne's design team ever look at these boards, or if they are just planning a couple of years ahead.
