Palm Pre now free on Bell Mobility

palmpre.200

The Palm Pre was supposed to be the savior for Palm. It was to rise above the Treos and Centros that came before it, offering a truly powerful alternative to the Apple iPhone. Things haven’t gone quite as well as Palm had hoped, but that seems to be working in your favor.

If you’ve been patient and wanted a bargain, Bell Mobility may be the place to go. The Canadian carrier has slashed the price on the Palm Pre to a much more affordable zero dollars and zero cents. Not one penny. Back when it first launched, the Palm Pre was sold by Bell for $199.95 with a three-year contract, placing it on par with the iPhone.

Palm Pre WebOS 1.4 update will have Adobe Flash 10.1

palm pre

When it was revealed at last year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, many said that it could be a serious competitor to the iPhone. Apple’s handset still reigns supreme, but that doesn’t mean Palm and Sprint are going to run and hide in a corner. They’re pushing out upgrades that’ll make the Palm Pre even more enticing, so they hope.

Sprint will be sending out the new WebOS 1.4 upgrade to Palm Pre owners after a community alert was dispatched revealing the news. The new OS comes with a range of improvements, but the most notable is support for a new Adobe Flash 10.1 plug-in from the Palm App Catalog.

Palm Pre Gets Stalked Too with New Foursquare App

foursquare1

I’m all for social networking. The world is a social place, so the Internet world should be social too. That’s why I’m reasonably active on Twitter and some other places online.
