    Back when the Palm Pre was launched, Sprint boasted of their exclusive deal with Palm concerning webOS. (A lot of good that did them...) Verizon countered with an "end of year" release of webOS themselves. Obviously they were a bit too excited as Sprint ended up being correct -- that Verizon wasn't getting any webOS love until 2010. Well, 2010 is just around the corner and tonight we can now feast our eyes upon the very training documents VZW employees are currently consuming, prepping f...

    Palm has had a rather tough time so far getting webOS off the ground. The Pre has more or less done pretty good though it's short of what I'd call a blow out success. Still, Palm still has some fight (or is it just reflexes on a dead carcass now...?) left in them. The Palm Pixie isn't as high end as the Pre, but it's purpose in life isn't to steal the hearts and minds of the high end market. The Pixie is meant to bring up the bottom end -- to usher in droves of new users who may not have had...

    To get any background functionality out of your iPhone, you know Jailbreaking is involved. So if the process is too much for you to handle or you're too paranoid about all of the "What ifs", go ahead and continue on anyway. The Palm Pre and webOS have one of the most visually pleasing and effective ways of managing running processes with the use of "cards". It's fast and easy to keep the clutter down and your phone operating in tip top shape. That same convenience can now be had by jailbroke...

    The Palm Pre isn't even that old yet and already we're looking at what can replace it. Can Palm's lower end device dubbed "Pixie" attract more followers with it's lower price point? It's a mixed bag for me. Sure it's cheaper, but I'd rather have the Pre's form factor. The Pixie just looks weird -- too long and cheaply made. Then again I'm one person. Give the vid above a look and see if the as of now unreleased Pixie and webOS 1.3.1 have anything hidden that could change your mind. En...

    If you're down with WebOS and can't wait for the next iteration, want a smaller version of the Pre, or simply have been holding off on all of this webOS business until more devices come out of Palm HQ, I'm happy to say your wait can now officially be over. Introducing the Palm Pixie, the smaller, slider-less version of the Pre. Featuring a more standard candybar design, the Pixie (a.k.a. Eos) houses a smaller 2.63" touchscreen on the front fascia of this equally sleek device. CDMA and EV-DO...
