  • Verizon Wireless appears to be setting out to clobber the competition when it comes to selling the Unlocked Palm Pre Plus Phone.  According to their website it appears that Verizon has already lowered the price of  the Pre Plus to just $30 on a two year contract.  This is a substantial discount over Sprint and AT&T who will be charging $149 not to mention AT&T has not even started selling the device!  There has been no word on whether or not this discounted price will last or if the lowered end model Pixi Plus will eventually fall to free with a contract.  If you are looking for a cheap way to get in on the future of HP it looks like this is as good of a chance as any.



    The Palm Pre Plus is one of the better, lower priced smartphones on the market today.  Packing features such as Palm webOS, 3.0 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, QWERTY keyboard, Touch Screen and 3G Mobile Hotspot it is easy to see why many consumers are eager to pick up this new mobile device.  Now it appears that with Verizon’s generous pricing structure consumers will be able to grab this device at an exceptional value.


    The various other devices by Palm Pre have been great sellers in the past as well.  Perhaps spotting a chance to gain a few more members of their network Verizon jumped the gun by lowering the price substantially over their competitors to cash in on all the people who will be looking to purchase this particular Palm device.  This looks like a good decision by Verizon as they will be sure to gain a few new customers for their network via this very affordable smartphone.

  • Starting today Verizon Wireless is rolling out the webOS 1.4.1.1 update to Pre Plus and Pixi Plus owners.  The update is a modest 11mb in size and includes minor bug fixes including one that addresses the “sticky key” problem many users have been experiencing.  Pinch to zoom is also being expanded into Docs and PDF, WiFi to CDMA hand-off is going to be more consistent and battery life while using Bluetooth has also been improved.  The update is over the air and should arrive to the Pre Plus and Pixi Plus within the next 48 hours.  Below is a full list of updates that are included with webOS 1.4.1.1:

  • Eventhough AT&T’s own Ralph de la Vega mentioned all the way back in November 2008 that you would be able to tether your iPhone to your personal computer and use it as a modem “soon” it looks like we are still quite a ways away from seeing this functionality.  Even with many iPhone carriers around the world deploying this tethering feature as soon as Apple had it ready it seems that AT&T’s silence is saying more than they want it to.  Tech website Engadget reached out to AT&T and received this feedback concerning iPhone tethering on the AT&T network:


    Apple iPhone 3GS 32GB Black Unlocked GSM Cellular Phone


    "We understand that there is great interest in tethering but cannot provide any details at this time. We know that iPhone users love their devices and mobile broadband, and that they're likely to embrace tethering just as they have other features and apps – by using it a lot. iPhone tethering has the potential to exponentially increase traffic, and we need to ensure that we're able to deliver excellent performance for the feature – over and above the increases in data traffic we're already seeing – before we will offer the feature."


    While it does make sense for AT&T to ensure their network can handle the increased load that would accompany iPhone users being able to use their phone as a modem for their personal computers they better hurry up and figure out a solution quickly or risk losing business customers to Verizon.  Verizon recently announced that their Palm Mobile Hotspot app would be a free add on with the Pre Plus and Pixi Plus that is sure to draw the attention of many business customers and frequent travelers that would benefit from being able to use their mobile device as a mobile hot spot while on the road.

  • As you may be aware there are hacked Pre firmware releases that have come out recently for the 1.3.5.1 and 1.4 versions. While these hacked versions have been tested and the results have been relatively good Palm isn’t exactly excited that users have been releasing these hacked firmware releases. Even with users having documented minimal heat gains and battery losses Palm has been issuing warnings that running these hacked versions may affect your current warranty.

    While we appreciate the effort the webOS community has put forth to try and help us along that path, the use of this application is neither endorsed nor recommended by Palm Unlocked Phone and will likely result in a voided warranty.


    It is obvious to see why Palm would not be thrilled about users enhancing the clock multiplier on their phones and why you can not fault them for voiding warranties of the users who do decide to beef up their phones. While the users who do perform these hacks and issue the firmware releases are safe users who are not releasing these updates with malicious intent I am sure that Unlocked Palm Phones would much rather prefer they did not do so.

  • After a much anticipated wait Palm finally announced that their top two mobile phones will be coming to the AT&T network.  The Pre Plus and Pixi Plus will be making their way to AT&T’s network in the “coming months.”  These are two of the best phones that Palm has to offer and is surely to excite all AT&T customers.


     The Pre Plus will be similarly equipped to its Verizon counterpart and will come with 16GB of storage, GPS, WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1.  The Pixi will be very similar as well as it is expected to have 8GB of storage, GPS, WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1.  Both devices are expected to support AT&T’s new address book service as a synergy sync option and will have free auto-conntect access to the carrier’s WiFi +20,000 hotspots.  These devices are also set to come in a variety of colors including a blue back plate in addition to the standard black and other swapable colors.

     Both of these devices appear to be pretty affordable for most consumers.  The Pre Plus is expected to be available for $149.99 and the Pixi Plus at a deep discount of $49.99 (with a $100 mail in rebate and two year contract.)  The official announcement of these two Palm phones being available on the AT&T network is expected to take place this week at the US’s largest wireless convention, CTIA.


    Hopefully at the CTIA convention we will get a more concrete time frame for these mobile devices to be rolled out.  Right now they are set to be released in the “coming months.”  Here is to hoping that those “coming months” are much shorter than we think they will be.  It will also be interesting to see what kind of affect moving to the AT&T network will have on Palm.  I expect this will be a great business decision and dramatically increase their sales.
