There’s been rumors going around that Verizon Wireless has decided not to carry the Palm Prestarting in 2010 after all. They were supposed to be the second wireless carrier in the US to get the WebOS device. While many people wonder if this is going to be the straw that breaks the camel’s back for Palm really none of us should be so surprised at this news.
Sales of the Palm Pre have been sluggish since it launched in June of this year and the hyped up competition from new comers like Android OS devices really doesn’t help much does it? It splits up the market even more and consumers really have choices. There are also great Nokia products in the market as well as old standbys like BlackBerry and Windows Mobile devices. Read more
Recent news from Palm is that it will not be developing new handsets based on Microsoft’s Windows Mobile any more but will leverage the capabilities of its own webOS platform. The new OS has already been released in the USA in June of this year and will debut in Europe through Telefonica. Also the yet to be launched Palm Pixi will run on webOS. Read more
While Palm is busy announcing the Pixi and dropping the price of the Pre, and Apple is on the verge of launching its new line of iPods, and Motorola is gearing up for its big announcement of their new smartphone(s) lineup in San Francisco tomorrow, a well known tiger in the smartphone market, HTC, quietly rolls out another HTC Android device. Unbelievable right? They are simply unstoppable!
The HTC Tattoo is going to be a great Android device because its going to be for FREE. The device channels similar features of the HTC Hero and also has Sense UI for customizing your smartphone as per your ‘profiles.” That’s right, that’s what I said. The unnamed carrier that is going to pick it up for the overseas market is going to offer it for free and I’m sure lots of people have high hope that the same will be the case in the US market. And, it’s not that the phone is weak, in fact it’s awesome.
Here’s some phone details after the jump. Now tell me how is Motorola going to be topping that tomorrow? Read more
There are multiple rumors scouring the information highway about a possible palm price slash tomorrow. Could this be just a ploy to steal the shine away from Apples coming announcement. The rumor mill goes on to say that the price cut will last all the way through October 31.
How much of a price cut you ask? Well from it’s original price of $549.99 the price of $149.99 sounds like music to all of the Palm customers ears. Unless you were one of the unlucky few who purchased the phone before the price cut.
But once again this is all speculation. But at least we won’t have to wait too long , in the wise words of a cute little orphan named Annie, We’re only a day away!
If you could charge your mobile phone wirelessly it will eliminate the hassle of wires running to and fro from the phone. You can also talk all you want without the anxiety of having to cope with a drained battery on your phone. You need not wait for your phone to charge up as most mobile phones will come with wireless charging features.
The technology which lets you charge mobiles wirelessly consists of a combination of super-capacitors which can charge devices in just seconds and not minutes. The technology however needs further development to reach your doorstep.
It is believed that wireless speed-charging will increase and affect mobile phone sales enormously. You can expect it to be better than the Touchstone charger introduced for the Palm Pre which uses induction technology for transferring power over short distances like a wired charger.
Super-capacitors are not a new phenomenon but have entered the mobile phone field only recently. It is used for camera flash applications where delivery of high levels of power for a short period is required.
Super capacitors are also called Farad capacitors and are a type of Hi-Tech Green energy. It polarizes an electrolyte and stores the energy. The process is however reversible which enables this super capacitor to be charged and discharged many number of times.
