Like the legendary white HP TouchPad that went on sale across the Atlantic but not stateside. The folks over at Engadget managed to spot the white European HP TouchPad, the black TouchPad 4G for AT&T, and the Pre […]

Save webOS video tribute and plea released
With HP’s recent decision to stop producing webOS devices and its decision to not license the operating system to other manufacturers, it really looks like webOS as we know it has received the final nail in its coffin. If you’re upset about it, you’re not the only one, and recent price cuts and refunds won’t be bringing this OS back to life, however it might not be too late to […]

HP Pre 3 shows up on Orange UK website
It’s been many months since the HP Pre 3 was announced to the public, and we’re still not any closer to seeing the device on sale.

HP Pre 3 – Pre 2′s successor
With the Pre 2 going up for pre-order tomorrow, we wonder why HP chose today to unveil such a device. It pretty much guarantees nobody is going to place an order for the Pre 2 once they hear about the Pre 3. The Pre 3 is HP’s sexy new webOS phone and from its specs, we don’t disagree. No dual-core processor for this phone, but the Pre 3 will pack […]

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.

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 […]
