Alcatel Android Phone Leaked

You might not see too many Alcatel phones at your local store, but here’s one to remind you that they still make interesting phones. If you mistakenly thought that it was a Palm Pre, you’ll be forgiven, as it certainly looks like it ripped the design off the Palm Pre. The OS powering it is totally different though, Google’s Android instead of Palm’s webOS. What’s interesting about this phone is […]

Palm Press Conference Wrap-Up

[CES 2010] Palm picked up a slew of accolades at CES last year with the release of their pre smartphone as well as its webOS, but somehow they did not manage to translate that success on the commercial front to one huge money spinning business.

AT&T CEO, Ralph de la Vega, has announced that AT&T will be offering 2 Palm webOS phones soon. Too bad he didn’t mention what phones they would be, though if there aren’t any new phones from Palm, it’s probably going to be a GSM version of the Palm Pre and Palm Pixi.

iTunes Locks Palm Pre Out (Again)

When this cat and mouse game first started, we were rather intrigued, but after going back and forth so many times, it’s starting to become tiresome. We’re talking about the iTunes syncing issues with the Palm Pre of course, and with the latest iTunes update, the Palm Pre can’t sync with iTunes again. One possible solution to end all this confusion would be to do like what RIM has done, […]


No iTunes For Palm Pre (For Now)

Apple and Palm have been playing a rather intriguing game of cat and mouse with iTunes and the Pre. The latest update indicates Apple has got a slight edge over Palm, especially since Palm was served a letter from the USB Implementers Forum, a group that oversees the standards for USB connections. It has decided that Palm is in violation of the group’s membership agreement because Palm was misrepresenting the […]

Palm Pre Review: Don’t Call it an iPhone Killer

Publisher’s note: unlike the older Palm Pre mini Review, this post was written with the final retail version of the Palm Pre. Remember the old “Don’t call it a phone” ads for wireless company Helio? I was reminded of the “don’t call it” imperative when I first laid my fingers on the new Palm Pre from Sprint this evening. Everyone wants to know how it compares to Apple’s iconic handheld. […]


Palm Pre Training Starting on May 6th for Sprint Employees

There is a bizarre confusion as whether the Pre training for Palm reps will start on Wednesday or Thursday of this week, but what’s important is that it is an indication that the launch is imminent despite some predictions that the Pre is “dead on arrival” or DOA. Sprint is rallying its troops but at the same time, reminds its employees that this still needs to be a secret. Sprintgurus […]


Is Palm As Dead as Ashok Kumar (Analyst) Says?

Ashok Kumar, an analyst for Collin Stewart thinks that the Palm Pre is Dead on Arrival (DOA). He claims that the recent rumor of supply control are in fact wrong. Palm would be reducing the production because it is still having “multiple software and hardware problems”.
