Palm Centro to launch soon

11 September 2007

Q4 2007, according to Sprint. That means very, very soon. This is about as official as these things get, so you can bet on it. Sprint is the carrier for now, with no word on whether anyone else will get it. Likely Verizon will have access to it in a few months, as that’s how […]

Palm Cancels Foleo

6 September 2007

The Palm Foleo was created as a sort of sub-laptop device – something easier to enter data into than your Treo, but easier to lug around than a laptop.  What it ended up as was a completely pointless device.  Carrying one around is basically no different than carrying a laptop – without the functionality, of […]

Palm Centro

3 September 2007

There are now various pics of the upcoming Palm Centro floating around – though no hard specs yet.  Word is that it’s a small unit with lower hardware specs, aimed at the youth market.  Target price is reported to be $99 – though I’d say that’s surely with a contract.  Still, an impressive price target, […]

Sprint Treo 700wx Review

3 September 2006

Verizon has had the only Windows powered Treo for long enough. Today Sprint introduced the new and improved Treo 700wx. This is great news for Sprint users like myself, who until now only had the Palm OS powered Treo 700p. The Treo 700wx is very similar to the Treo 700w , with the main difference […]

The sequel to Palm OS

25 August 2006

We all know that Palm OS is sorely in need of an update. Palm has been under fire for lack of OS progress for years – justifiably so. Palmsource was present at LinuxWorld recently, and had some information on the status of the Access Linux Platform. One of the biggest changes I see is resolution […]

Sprint Treo 700wx coming soon

22 August 2006

It looks like Sept. 3 is the big day, according to Treonauts.  Sprint  will be releasing an improved version of the 700w.   Packed with 64 MB vs 32 in the 700w, the Treo 700wx addresses the biggest complaint about the original. Verizon had their 6 months of exclusivity, now it’s Sprint’s turn to shine.  Given my […]

The future of Palm OS

16 June 2006

Brighthand recently posted a fantastic, if almost alarmist, article about the future of the Palm OS as we know it. There are doubtless thousands of Palm OS fans like myself. We have watched the Palm OS go from being superior in every way to the handheld version of Windows, to falling behind in many measures. […]

Palm Treo 700p Review at CNet

18 May 2006

CNet reviews the Palm Treo 700p and writes – ‘Surfing the Web on the Palm Treo 700p was a relatively good experience.

We also watched an episode of Fox’s Prison Break […]
