    Roger McNamee: Judgment Day

    You know the beautiful thing: June 29, 2009, is the two- year anniversary of the first shipment of the iPhone,Elevation Partners (which owns a huge portion of Palm) co-founder Roger McNamee told Bloomberg in March. “Not one of those people will still be using an iPhone a month later.” Yes, that would be today. So how did McNamee's claim turn out? Well, let's put it this way: If there… Read More

  • Palm Pre lady remix: Like Jacob's Ladder with cellphones

    BBG points us to this Palm Pre commercial remix that forces us to ask the question: Was Tim Robbins dead or dying in the Jacob’s Ladder. Was it like in An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge? Why haven’t I watched that movie lately? It was really good. Even crazier REAL commercial after the jump. Read More

    Verizon to sell Palm Pre next year, long national nightmare is over

    Verizon confirmed in an analyst conference call that the Palm Pre, the little smartphone the could, will be available on Verizon’s network between Q1 and the end of Q2 next year. This should come as a relief to people who are waiting to ditch their Blackberry Storms for Palm’s new offering. There’s not much more info than that: they just said it would happen.

    Palm Pre now available online – everyone, please don't rush

    Long after the Palm Pre hype machine has been turned off, Sprint is just now making the Pre available for purchase via Sprint.com. There really isn’t advantage of ordering the phone online besides you don’t actually have to leave the comforts of your basement. Purchasers will still need to mail in a $100 rebate to bring the cost down to $199. But if avoiding the general public is your… Read More

    The Innocase Surface Palm Pre case works with the Touchstone

    One of the common downsides when using any sort of handset case or skin is that you often lose compatibility with accessories. Case in point is the Palm Pre and the Touchstone which requires a special phone back to work with the inductive charger. Good news, Pre owners. Seideo has the answer and it's called the Innocase Surface. Read More

    Analyst Finds Palm Pre Sales Stabilize At Ho-Hum Levels

    Despite the early fanfare and limited inventory at launch, Sprint doesn't seem to be hitting it out of the park with the new Palm Pre. Earlier this month we reported on some channel checks by JNK Securities analyst Mike Ehrlich, who called 50 Sprint stores and found out that sales were lackluster. Yesterday, he issued a new report based on channel checks from last Thursday and Friday, Week 5… Read More

    Get on your party hats: GSM Palm Pre hitting O2 and Movistar

    We're all quite excited here to find out that O2 and Movistar will get the Palm Pre in GSM form, opening the phone up to unlocking, hacking, and all sorts of molestation. UK, Ireland and Germany will get the phone on O2 and Spain will get it from Movistar. When, you ask? Christmas. That's right: by the time Palm pinches off the GSM Pre Apple will have probably released iPod Touches with cameras… Read More

    Palm Pre, she is not doing so well

    My, how time flies in the tech world. It was only one month ago today that the Palm Pre launched to the public, giving users their first chance to try out WebOS first hand. Critical response to the device was generally positive, though much of this stemmed from the phone's impressive operating system rather than the hardware itself. Still, it was exciting to see a genuinely compelling product… Read More

    eBay has some red hot Palm Pres for about $320 – this one is ending in 28 minutes but I bet you could find more. I’m curious to know where these are coming from. Refurbs? Stolen? Found on the road after their owners abandoned them in frustration? Read More

  • G.S.M. Palm Pre spotted in Vietnam

    Waves of exultation and joy must be coming out of Saigon as the first secret G.S.M. Palm Pres begin wending their way out of the secret Pre factories in the jungles to the south. A crack team of commandoes have wrested one of these super secretive models out of the hands of an unsuspecting courier and taken video and photos of it. Remember that the Palm Pre originally came in G.S.M. flavor back… Read More

    In Soviet Union, you get Palm Pre

    If you were reading a major paper this weekend, you'd notice a striking ad. There's the Palm Pre resting against an apple core with the words: The Palm Pre does things the iPhone can't. Run multiple applications at the same time with real-time updates and even save $1200 over two years. It's the perfect time to join the Now Network, America's most trusted 3G network, bringing you the first and… Read More

    Get you some Mojo (SDK for WebOS)

    Get some sweet, sweet Palm Mojo early. It's basically the SDK for WebOS and it just showed up on the interwebs. Most interesting, however, is the lengths folks will go not to anger the Palm Gods: Currently, no word on whether or not Palm is okay with this, and we can’t imagine that they are thrilled, so download at your own risk. Depending on how this one goes, we may have to pull all the links… Read More
