Posted in HP by Conner Flynn on February 9th, 2011

So, about that webOS tablet. We now have some leaked specs and a name. It will apparently be called the TouchPad. It will weigh 1.5 pounds and will measure 13mm thick.

There was also a rumor about another device that might be a small phone, but we have no details yet. The webOS event is happening soon so we should learn more quickly.

Details on HP / Palm’s webOS tablets

Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on January 18th, 2011

A tipster sent some internal renders of HP / Palm’s “Topaz” webOS tablet to the folks over at Engadget, which is one of two tablets currently developed by HP/Palm. The two tablets are the 9-inch Topaz and a 7-inch model codnamed Opal. As you can see in the render, it sports the no-button design, a front-facing camera, a micro USB port on the bottom, and what looks like a three speaker arrangement.

Word is that units will start to arrive at Palm HQ in June, with a launch later this year. The WiFi-only, AT&T 3G, and Verizon LTE versions of the Opal should arrive in September 2011, and on AT&T LTE in July 2012. No info on pricing yet.

HP trademarks Gyst, Myte, Veer for possible Palm phones

Posted in HP by Conner Flynn on December 16th, 2010

HP has been busy today having filed a trio of trademarks for devices that could represent Palm’s 2011 webOS lineup. The USPTO filings refer to the Gyst, Myte and Veer in generic terms but they could fit the description of a smartphone. These three could be the previously codenamed Mantaray, Stingray and Windsor, with the previously mentioned Broadway maybe being the Pixi 2.

We don’t know what these phones will do versus the Pre 2 and Pixi 2, but at least one will likely to be a touch-only model. We will just have to wait and see what happens.

Palm Mansion to sport 5 inch display

Posted in Palm by Conner Flynn on November 21st, 2010

Rumors are circulating about HP Palm’s next-generation webOS 2.0 offering which is codenamed the Palm Mansion. The device is said to have a 5-inch WVGA screen with a resolution of 480 X 800, which would make it similar to the Android-powered Dell Streak.

The 5-inch screen size would make it either a large smartphone or a small tablet. If it’s a smartphone, it would offer users a larger screen than traditional phones, which top at 4 inches, and still be pocketable. The device would also be using Palm’s webOS 2.0 operating system, which features smooth multitasking and several enhancements from the original webOS.

Major WebOS developer leaves Palm for Apple

Posted in Apple by Shane McGlaun on June 9th, 2010

The iPhone is on a completely different level from the Palm Pre in terms of popularity and sales. Still, there are a few things that I don’t like about the iPhone that the Pre does better. The most obvious is the way webOS handles notifications that let you keep working while the iPhone makes you stop and tend to the notification.

The man who designed the notification system in webOS has left Palm and landed at Apple. We can only hope that his first job will be to revamp the notification system the iPhone uses into something that works better.


HP Slate to run Palm WebOS

Posted in HP by Conner Flynn on May 24th, 2010

Good news for those who had hoped that HP wouldn’t use Windows 7 in their HP Slate. Instead they will be using their newly acquired Palm WebOS. That’s what Monty Wong, vice-president of personal computing systems at HP Taiwan, said to Digitimes.

The HP Taiwan official said that HP will use WebOS for both smartphones and tablets, but not for notebooks. Also, the HP Slate will hit the market before October, with a “wide range” of software support at launch. What do you think? Good news? Or did you want another OS?

HP takes over Palm for $1.2 Billion

Posted in HP by Conner Flynn on April 29th, 2010

Palm has fallen quite a long way since those heady days before the Palm Pre was actually offered. HP has now bought Palm for $1.2 Billion. That’s about $5.70 per share of Palm stock. This will help HP get some firm footing into the mobile segment, with Palm’s entire patent history at their disposal. Can we expect some HP phones as soon as within the next two years?

The deal will be official by July 31 2010 and the Current CEO of Palm, Jon Rubinstein might be staying.

HTC walks away from Palm purchase but Lenovo steps up

Posted in Lenovo,Palm by Shane McGlaun on April 23rd, 2010

Palm has been on the ropes as the popularity of its Pre and Pixi WebOS smartphones has proven to be poor. The company is selling significantly less of the devices that it and analysts predicted.

Palm has stated that it is willing to entertain purchase offers and the first to step up was HTC. HTC is a rival smartphone maker and after the company eyed Palm’s books, it opted to walk away. Another suitor has stepped into the ring now.

iTunes 9 not good for Palm Pre… again

Posted in Palm by Darrin Olson on September 10th, 2009

iTunes 9 kills access for Palm Pre SyncIt appears that with the recent release of iTunes 9, Apple has once again cut-off direct access for the Palm Pre’s iTunes support. We had seen it before with the release. It shouldn’t be too big of a surprise to Palm owners however, since Apple said the connectivity wouldn’t last long and they’ve thwarted Palm’s access in the past with iTunes iTunes 8.2.1.

It’s easy to see arguments on both sides of this issue, as frustrating as it might be for Palm owners. On one side Apple would like iTunes users to use Apple products to connect directly to iTunes, such as iPods or iPhones. But, they also have been a proponent of non-DRM music and are essentially making it difficult for other devices to get access to the music through their application.


Palm Pixi gets official

Posted in Sprint by Shane McGlaun on September 9th, 2009

palmpixi-sbThe first Palm device to hit the market running the firms new webOS was the Pre that is still a Sprint exclusive handset. Palm has today announced its second webOS device called the Palm Pixi.

The Pixi is a thin phone with a full QWERTY keyboard on the front of the device in Blackberry fashion. Palm is mum on the exact launch date but says that the Pixi will hit Sprint (sigh) in time for the holidays. The handset will operate on dual-band CDMA2000 networks and supports 3G EVDO Rev A.

Palm app catalog hits 1 million downloads

Posted in Palm by Conner Flynn on June 25th, 2009

Palm App catalog hits 1 million downloadsWell that didn’t take long. Just the other day we reported that Palm had reached 700,000 downloads and today we are up to a million. That’s pretty amazing. Especially when you consider that less than 30 applications were available from the App Catalog for a single device, which is available only on Sprint in the US.

While we don’t have any official numbers from Palm, the figure comes from industry analysts who suggest that 150,000 Pre devices were shipped since the June 6th retail introduction. That’s an average of about seven apps downloaded per phone.

Palm sells 50,000 Pre smartphones in opening weekend

Posted in Palm by Conner Flynn on June 8th, 2009

Verizon getting the Palm Pre in 6 monthsPalm and Sprint haven’t confirmed the numbers officially, but according to JPMorgan in a Wall Street Journal article, “sales in the first two days probably exceeded 50,000.” The figure was “aligned with expectations, but probably fell short of the 146,000 reported first-gen iPhone sales” during its opening weekend. And that was due to “capacity constraints in manufacturing.”

So it looks like the Pre launch was a success. Next weekend’s sales may put it all in perspective. It’s great news for Palm, but it isn’t all roses. We’ll have to see if new Palm owners are still having problems or not.
