palm-rubinstein

In an interview with Fortune, HP’s Jon Rubinstein, former CEO of Palm, stated that webOS 2.0 is slated to be released “later this year.” That’s a good indication that we can look to expect a few different devices coming from the Palm and HP camp; since they are working on developing new hardware "aggressively."

All of the puzzle pieces are starting to fall into place for a major competitor to Apple and their iPad. It may no longer have the HP Slate name we've been hearing over and over, however, it appears that HP has filed for a trademark on the name Palmpad.

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.
