HP sells webOS smartphones as bundle with new PCs

HP must be finding it difficult to push out its inventory of webOS-powered smartphones if they have started to push its handsets as part of a PC bundle. HP’s website did point towards a free Palm Pixi whenever you decide to bring home a performance ProBook notebook, but it seems rather inadequate to provide a business-oriented notebook with something less powerful, as we would have preferred to see a Pre […]


3D gaming on the Palm Pixi looks great

It might be a bit hard to believe that this is the Sprint Pixi you’re looking at, handling EA’s Need For Speed: Undercover with aplomb right after the webOS 1.4.5 update.

It’s scheduled to launch in Q2 of 2011 and specifications of the Dell […]


Sprint drops Palm Pixi to $50

Sprint has lowered the price of its already cheap Palm Pixi to just $50 in the US, hoping to bolster sales of the entry-level webOS phone by some margin. After all, Palm isn’t exactly doing gangbusters financially at the moment even with a great looking smartphone (we’re talking about the Palm Pre and the Pre Plus) with its webOS platform, since they seem to be a little too late to […]
