, we receive another tid-bit from the Palm rumor bin. It seems that the company is phasing out touchscreens for all but their highest-end Treos. This means the Gandolf and a whole set of new Treos, launching this and next year, will be without touchscreens. How this will work is anyone’s guess, but we suspect it’s a cost-cutting measure and also suggests the Palm OS will become considerably less prevalent. Why else would Gandolf have a keypad?
