Palm PVG100 passes through regulators with Android 8.1 Oreo

Back in March, a trusted source revealed to us that a Palm-branded Android smartphone was slated to launch on Verizon in the second half of 2018. We haven't heard anything since then, but a Palm device with model name 'PVG100' [https://www.androidpolice.com/2018/08/06/palm-pvg100-passes-fcc-wi-fi-alliance-android-8-1-oreo/] has just rolled through both the FCC and Wi-Fi Alliance.

As is commonplace with these filings, much of the information and all photos are obscured at the request of the manufacturer. However, there's still a bit of information that can be gleaned. The FCC page is barren aside from the model name and some operating frequencies, but the Wi-Fi Alliance PDF reveals that the PVG100 will run Android 8.1 Oreo. Interestingly, the only frequency band listed is 2.4GHz, meaning that the PVG100 will not have 5GHz. Without 5GHz support, it's unlikely that this device will wind up being very upmarket.

These Palm phones will probably have little to nothing to do with the Palm I loved (the pre-webOS Palm, because webOS was terrible and not a proper Palm product [http://www.osnews.com/story/26838/Palm_I_m_ready_to_wallow_now/page6/]).
