PalmInfoCenter has more photos of the Gandolf, this in the PalmOS flavor. A few new pieces of information:
- It does, in fact, have a touchscreen (at least in the PalmOS variety)
- It's thicker than we thought. Also confirmed: it's ugly as sin
- It's much thinner than previously expected, though it does appear to be a bit taller.
- It looks like it uses the standard Treo "Athena" connector instead of mini-USB
All in all, it looks like it belongs to the low-end Zire family of Palm devices - meaning this is likely the long-sought-for low cost Treo.
As far as what this means for the Windows Mobile version of the Gandolf, well, this looks different than the other spy-shot we got - take a look at right. When I posted that rumor, I wrote that I expected the Windows Mobile version to be Standard-Edition (read: no touch screen). This new shot is definitely a touchscreen version. I sincerely hope that Palm is planning on making the PalmOS version the thick monster at top and the Windows Mobile version this slightly-better looking one at right.
There's a lot of money to be had selling to the low end crowd, so I don't really want to rain on Palm's parade. ...but here's the precipitation anyway: this new shot isn't what I wanted to see.

Update: Video after the break, read on to see it
Update 2: If there were any doubters out there - note that Palm Legal has made PIC take down their pics and the video, which is no longer included after any sort of break because, well, it's gone.
