The timing is strange, but regardless, WebOS has finally, officially landed on AT&T. The Palm Pre Plus isn't the newest smartphone on the market, but it's WebOS' first landing on America's largest GSM carrier. What's odd, though, is no one really knows about the future of WebOS, and the future of Palm as a whole... Read more...
Come Sunday May 16th, AT&T will begin offering the Palm Pre Plus, fleshing out the wireless carrier's stable of high-end smartphones that currently include HTC's Pure, several BlackBerry devices, a little known smartphone from Apple called the iPhone, and a spattering of other models. The Palm Pre Plus will run $150 after mail-in-rebate... Read more...
HP still hasn't officially closed their deal to acquire Palm, but already the company is reportedly planning big things for their newly collected mobile operating system. Android has found itself on quite a few tablet PCs, so it makes sense to think that WebOS, which is another robust mobile OS with native multi-tasking, would do likewise.... Read more...
Like a caped avenger, Hewlett-Packard (HP) last week swooped in and scooped up Palm, saving the day for the struggling smartphone maker who, up to that point, was faced with an uncertain future. In the wake of the acquisition, Verizon has gone and slashed the price of Palm's HP's two webOS smartphones, the Palm Pre and Pixi. These aren't minor... Read more...
Whoa. Could it be true? Hewlett-Packard's claim to fame in the tablet PC world has been killed? It's a wild and far-fetched story, but golly if it doesn't make a little bit of sense. HP's "Slate," which Microsoft Steve Ballmer flew all the way to Las Vegas for in order to demonstrate at CES, could be dead and buried... Read more...
Earlier in the month, it was being widely reported that Palm was being shopped around. Yes, the Palm that makes the rather successful Pre and Pixi phones, was or is up for sale. At that time, two of main potential suitors were HTC and Lenovo. HTC obviously felt like the best fit. Lately, HTC has shown that it has a penchant for creating fantastic... Read more...
Something is up at Palm. There's no more debate about that. Earlier in the week, there were all sorts of relatively believable reports that Palm was up for sale, with Lenovo and others being named as potential buyers. Of course, Palm has been struggling for years now in an attempt to reinvent itself, so hearing that the company may be purchased... Read more...
Talk about a change of plans. Over the weekend, we heard that Palm's boss (Jon Rubinstein) was confident that he could get things turned around. The company has had trouble lately keeping their stock price afloat, and they've also had trouble moving their two webOS phones, the Pixi and Pre (along with the Pre Plus and Pixi Plus on Verizon...

Palm has faced more than its fair share of setbacks in the past several months including disappointing sales of the Pre Plus and Pixi Plus with Verizon Wireless, revenue shortfalls, and rumors that the company might be sold. Many people are wondering if Palm has a future, and if so, what that future looks like... Read more...
Verizon Wireless recently slashed the prices on their Palm WebOS phones. After the price cuts, you can pick up not one, but two Pre Plus phones for $49 or two Pixi Plus phones for $29. Perhaps even more surprising is that Verizon is now offering the 3G Mobile Hotspot feature for free (the service previously cost $40 per month). Verizon's 3G... Read more...
Wow. There had been rumors that webOS would be coming to AT&T, but just a few weeks after the carrier grabbed their first Android phone (Motorola's Backflip), Palm has announced that the Pre Plus and Pixi Plus will soon be on sale at AT&T. That leaves just T-Mobile USA out in America when looking at operators... Read more...
When Palm demo'd the Pre a year ago in January, the phone was seen as the company's last chance to reverse its fortunes. Despite positive reviews and praise for the company's WebOS and Palm Pixi, the once-dominant cell phone and PDA manufacturer has continued to lose ground (and money). For Q3 2010 Palm reported a loss of $18.5 million. That's... Read more...
Palm used the Game Developers Conference to announce a public beta version of its webOS Plug-in Development Kit (PDK). The company is also showing off new games from early PDK developers at the conference. Palm tells us more about the PDK: The PDK complements the Palm webOS Software Development Kit (SDK), letting developers use C and C++ alongside... Read more...
In recent months, Verizon Wireless has used various map ads to tell everyone about its 3G network. Now, the company wants its users to know about various apps for the Palm Pre Plus and Palm Pixi Plus smartphones that will shine thanks to the wireless carrier's 3G network. More specifically, Verizon Wireless points out the following apps for... Read more...
Google's Android and Apple's iPhone OS are easily the leading two mobile operating systems in terms of sheer mindshare, but the coemption is heating up. Microsoft has just launched Windows Phone 7 Series (slated to ship later in the year), and Palm has just released their latest version of the multi-tasking webOS... Read more...
Palm stole the show at CES 2009 when it introduced the world's first webOS-based smartphone, but a year spent on Sprint's network has left it in the shadows of the iPhone and a slew of Android phones. This week, Palm's giving itself a second chance by shipping the Pre Plus and Pixi Plus onto America's most populated cellphone carrier.These... Read more...
Starting Monday, you'll be able to pick up the Palm Pre Plus as well as the Palm Pixi Plus from Verizon Wireless. The new Palm Pre Plus will cost $149 and the Palm Pixi Plus will run $99.99. Both prices are after a $100 mail-in rebate and with new two-year customer agreement. The prices are in-line with previous... Read more...
3D gaming has come to the Palm webOS platform. During CES, Palm introduced several graphics-intensive game titles for webOS. The titles come from leading game developers such as EA Mobile, Gameloft, Glu Mobile, and Laminar Research.

Well, well, what do we have here? It looks like Palm is upping the specs on its Pre smartphone with the introduction of the new Palm Pre Plus. This smartphone is headed to Verizon Wireless and will offer twice the internal memory of the original (16GB, with 15GB user available) as well as a Palm Touchstone Back Cover for charging. The new... Read more...
Apple has made no secret of its intentions to rival the likes of Sony and Nintendo in the handheld gaming market. They clearly feel that the iPod touch and iPhone 3GS have what it takes to make people think twice about shelling out for a dedicated gaming handheld and those $20-$40 games. But one phone player that has remained relatively quiet... Read more...
It may not have arrived in time to be put under the Christmas tree on Friday, but Sprint did give us a happy start to the week by releasing webOS 1.3.5 today for the Palm Pre. Thanks to a mention from CEO Jon Rubinstein during Palm's Q2FY2010 earnings call, we knew the update was in the works and was scheduled to be released around CES... Read more...
Palm made the Pixi official back in early September, but US consumers have been waiting on two important tidbits ever since: a price and release date. Now, finally, both Palm and Sprint have come forward to confirm both of those, and we're a bit perplexed by one.The November 15th on-sale date makes perfect sense. It's just before the holiday...
