webOS-powered Palm Eos handset coming to AT&T (UPDATE: and Sprint?)

Just yesterday, rumor of a new, smaller webOS handset hit the newsfeeds. Today, Engadget has plenty of new details about Palm's new ace up their sleeve, complete with technical specs and a (sharper) photo. The rumored follow-up to the Centro is dubbed the Palm Eos, a super-thin (10.6mm) and light (100g) webOS handset sporting quad-band GSM, and "definitely" coming to the AT&T network.

Also, despite the diminutive size and weight, it will sport an 1150mAh removable battery and QWERTY keypad. Precentral sized up the new device relative to the Pre and iPhone, showing just how small it will be. The unconfirmed specs and info are below; we will keep you posted when new details arrive.

UPDATE: TechCrunch adds that the internal codename for the device is "Pixie" and predicts a target price of $99 after rebate, according the sources.

UPDATE #2: For Sprint users hoping to get the Eos as well, PhoneNews notes that sources within Sprint have confirmed a CDMA version is also on the way, for a possible Q3 release.
