Could new wireless earbuds be on the way?


Palm appears to be waking from its slumber to release some new hardware, according to a tweet the phone maker posted Tuesday. An accompanying image seems to show the outline of several wireless earbuds, with overlaid text that reads, "We've been busy." 

The new product will apparently be unveiled on Oct. 26, according to the tweet, which also reads: "Get ready #PalmCrew! We have something special we've been working on for you."

Palm didn't immediately respond to a request for more information.

In 2018, Palm debuted a $350 device for calls and texts, but which only worked as an accessory to another Verizon phone. In 2019, the company announced a new version that can serve as a standalone Android phone

The rumored new earbuds could accompany that tiny device. Palm on Wednesday retweeted a post that reads, "My Palm Phone wouldn't mind some company" with the raised-hands emoji.
