Palm Pre gets a UK launch date

,----[ Quote ]
| O2 HAS NAMED 16 October as the date when UK buyers will 
| be able to purchase Palm's Pre smartphone, the first 
| device to feature the company's new WebOS platform and 
| tipped by many as the biggest rival for Apple's Iphone.

Finding Maemo

,----[ Quote ]
| Maemo was developed in-house by Nokia, and is made up 
| of a number of open and closed source bits and pieces, 
| including Debian Linux. It draws much of its GUI, 
| frameworks, and libraries from the GNOME project. The 
| much anticipated N900 is the flag bearer for the OS, 
| and Nokia is already running a 'fun' competition 
| designed to highlight its possibilities.



Palm Pre: Top-notch smartphone, despite some hardware gaps

,----[ Quote ]
| Pre wins a lot of points for style. The black, shiny and
| uniform exterior looks great and the device is slight enough to
| fit easily in your pocket and in the palm of your hand. Its
| curved edges and simple design â there's only one visible
| button when the keyboard is closed â make it approachable. It's
| a phone you'll want to hold.


Palm dumps Windows Mobile

,----[ Quote ]
| PALM HAS SAID that it will be dropping the
| Windows Mobile operating system in favour
| of its own webOS platform.


Palm Pre beats expectations, drops WiMo to focus on WebOS

,----[ Quote ]
| Part of that strategy involves dumping any
| distractions, including both the companyâs original
| Palm OS and the Windows Mobile partnership that Palm
| forged with Microsoft in 2006, a year before Rubinstein
| arrived. Palmâs
| support for Windows Mobile helped nearly double
| Microsoftâs market share at the time.


Review: Pre - Palm Strikes Back

,----[ Quote ]
| Once upon a time Palm claimed the most loyal developer base among smartphone and
| handheld manufactures. Its 30,000-strong catalog of apps for the Palm OS was the envy of
| Palm's rivals. With the webOS, the company is basically starting from scratch.
