    Verizon has finally completed their merger with Alltel making them the largest (by subscriber base) carrier in the U.S. with 83.7 million customers.  The total dent in Verizon's wallet comes in the form of $5.9 billion for Alltel's equity, and $22 billion net of cash.  Over the next couple of months as the networks are integrated, Verizon is telling Alltel customers that nothing needs to be done on their end.  Alltel's GSM will continue being served, and Alltel customers can call Verizon ...

    Engadget has been lucky enough to get an early hands on with Palm's Touchstone wireless charger.  The Touchstone will be one of the first to be widely available to the general public.  This is definitely a really cool device. Palm did the right thing releasing this with the Pre.  Kudos to Palm.  Check out a few more pics below.  *Pictures are property of Engadget* [gallery] Source: Engadget...
  • Palm Pre pricing and GSM version info leaked? (Rumor)

    Boy Genius is just hammering the net with Palm news this morning.  Moving on from their website issue, the latest rumors/news has to deal with Palm pricing (still unannounced) and a GSM variant.  It looks like Palms pricing secret could be no more as Boy Genius has received information that points to a $400 resale price!  Definitely NOT the sweet spot for pricing.  Granted, first gen iPhones sold that high, but then again, while there is a great deal of hype around the Pre, there isn't t...
  • Palm parties too hardy/forgets they have a website…Pre still shown as “Castle/coming soon”

    What better way to celebrate the incoming weekend than with a little comedy. It seems everyone at Palm had a little too much to drink last night, slept in too late, or just plain forgot that they had a website. Boy Genius has a screen capture showing the Pre as still "coming soon". It also reveals the code name the Pre carried prior to launch as the "Castle". Cool. Take a cold shower, drink some coffee, and don't come in until 10. You earned a little extra sleep guys. Source: Boy Ge...

    WM Experts has received a tip regarding Palm's website.  Apparently they made a few changes and left a few tid bits of info confirming the Palm Treo Pro.  If you go to Palm's site and hit "Shop" and then click on "Compare Details", you'll notice that under the Treo Pro it says 3g and CDMA + EVDO.  What does this mean?  Only that it could be coming to more than one U.S. carrier or even more wild is if it the CDMA version was a "World Edition", being a CDMA phone here in the states, but wi...
  • GSM or CDMA?

    This topic, while being discussed many times every year is still of interest because how segregated a market it creates.  Whether your a GSM junkie or CDMA fanboy, when ever the topic of GSM vs. CDMA come up you can guarantee that there will be a very heated debate afterwards as both camps have fiercely loyal members.  Each camp will claim superiority and that they are a better solution for world communication.  What camp do I associate with?  I will come right out in the beginning...
  • Palm Treo Pro making its way to Sprint…just a little too late for the Holidays :(

    For all of you Treo loving, Sprint followers hoping to get your sweaty hands on Palms latest and greatest as a Christmas gift for yourself, you'll have to wait a tad longer.  Many hoped it would make its grand appearance before Christmas, unfortunately it isn't slated for release until January.  Pricing info is unknown at this time, but I will update as soon as Boygenius lets us all know, haha.  In Palms defense, it doesn't look half bad.  I will definitely head over to Sprint on the d...
  • Verizon = Greedy A**holes

    I'll start by saying, bar none, Verizon has the biggest 3G foot print, and generally in most sections of the country, the best coverage.  However, I don't care if they had 100% coverage from here until the moon I would NEVER subscribe to their nickel and dime bs. Rant aside, Boygenius has got his hands on the full two page document highlighting Verizon's consumer friendly change in their plan pricing and Smartphone/PDA plan schemes.  After November 14th ALL smartphones will requir...
