[News] Palm Uses to Linux to Beat iPhones

Hash: SHA1

Palm Pre to kill the iPhone? 

,----[ Quote ]
| The Palm Pre (slideshow), unveiled during the Consumer Electronics Show 
| earlier this year, has been widely discussed as a possible iPhone killer. 
| While it's received a wealth of attention, is it truly a phone packing as 
| much punch as the claims? Could it really give the iPhone a run for its 
| money, affording Palm the chance to mount a comeback? Palm Pre, Palm Pre, oh 
| what does the future see?     



The Palm Pre Will Be an iPhone Killer

,----[ Quote ]
| After seemingly disappearing off the face of the earth while companies like
| Nokia and RIM released multiple phones, and while Apple's iPhone 3G has
| continued to enjoy immense popularity, Palm has finally hit back. The Pre is
| considered a make-or-break release for Palm — the smartphone is built on an
| entirely new Linux-based operating system called webOS.


Palm opens up WebOS SDK

| PALM IS opening up the software development kit for WebOS, its
| next-generation mobile operating system.


Palm Pré to arrive next month?

,----[ Quote ]
| The much-hyped Palm Pré could be launched next month, according to Tweets
| posted by the head of one firm thought to be testing the would-be iPhone
| killer.
| Jim Van, CEO of Logicom, reportedly updated his Twitter feed last week to say
| that the phone’s release date will be 30 April.


Why Palm’s WebOS Could Shake up the Netbook World

,----[ Quote ]
| 1. WebOS is the most attractive and intuitive Linux OS. Ever. Yes,
| distributions like Ubuntu and Linux Mint look nice, and I’m sure Android will
| make some waves in the netbook arena (Asus is rumored to be working on a
| system) but WebOS is far and away the most consumer-friendly mobile OS I’ve
| seen. It just looks polished and slick–and no offense–doesn’t feel like
| you’re using Linux. Given that Microsoft is considering selling crippled
| netbooks with a Starter edition of Windows 7 that can run only three apps
| simultaneously (presumably in the hopes of upselling to a premium version)
| Dell or another PC manufacturer would be wise to either inquire about
| licensing WebOS or acquire Palm outright.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
