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 sells 50,000 Pre smartphones in opening weekend

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.

Palm Eos headed to AT&TThe much hyped Palm Pre isn’t even here yet, and here we have another leak of a new Palm device called the Eos. This one looks pretty awesome in it’s own right. It’s a quadband GSM/HSDPA smartphone that is super thin at just 10.6mm, and weighs just 100 grams.

Some features include: 2.63″ capacitive display at 320 x 400 resolution, 2-megapixel camera with video recording capability, Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP and USB 2.0 connectivity, A-GPS support, Audio and video file format support, and 4GB internal memory.

Palm debuts the Pre

Palm debuts the PrePalm just debuted its long awaited new handset, the Palm Pre. What a name. The touchscreen handset has a 3.1-inch 320 x 480 multitouch display, with a silver center button below and touch sensitivity all along the face. The lower part is for “gestures.” What’s that sliding out? A full QWERTY keyboard in portrait orientation. If you like, you can flip the phone on its side for accelerometer-sensed widescreen.

It’s running Palm’s all-new webOS platform, with TI’s new OMAP CPU. According to Palm, it provides laptop-style power, and powers the phone’s smooth transitions, scrolling and the like. Some other specs include EV-DO Rev. A, 802.11b/g WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth with A2DP and 8GB of built-in flash storage. It also sports a 3 megapixel camera with LED flash, mass storage-friendly microUSB plug and a good ol’ 3.5mm headphone jack.
