Palm Looking at Other Options: webOS Licensing and Further Investments

Palm Looking at Other Options: webOS Licensing and Further Investments

Late last night, news broke across everyone's desk that Palm was putting itself up for sale. That's tough information for a lot of people to swallow, but the painting is right on the wall. With a substantial loss reported earlier this year, and the simple fact that the Verizon Wireless bred Palm Pre Plus and Pixi Plus didn't sell nearly as well as Palm would have liked doesn't make it any easier. And, while talk of a sale is hard for Palm fans to hear, many consider it the right thing for the company to do. But, what may be better, are the two other options that Palm has up their sleeve.

Palm for sale tip insiders: HTC, Lenovo, Dell & others in running

Having heard talk late last week that HTC were considering picking up Palm, the big news this morning is that - despite protestations to the contrary by the company's executives - they're apparently looking for potential buyers.  Bloomberg has heard from three sources that Palm have quietly engaged Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Qatalyst Partners to handle the possible sale; both HTC and Lenovo "have looked at the company and may make offers" those sources maintain.

Palm Pre and Pixi Face AT&T Launch Delays, Reduced Number of Units

Palm Pre and Pixi Face AT&T Launch Delays, Reduced Number of Units

The launch of a Palm smartphone running webOS on AT&T's network hasn't actually been confirmed as of yet, but that's not stopping the analysts from declaring their assumptions. The release of the AT&T Palm Pre (Plus?) and Pixi (Plus?) has been on the rumor mill for quite some time, and many people think it's just about as confirmed as it can get without an actual official statement from Palm. It would be a great thing to see a webOS device hit AT&T, but not so much if these latest murmurings have any truth to them.

Palm downgrade revenue expectations over “slower than expected” sales

Palm have sheepishly updated their revenue guidance figures for the third fiscal quarter of 2010, blaming "slower than expected consumer adoption of the company’s products" - also known as "people not realising they really, really need a Palm smartphone" - for the shortfall.  According to the press release, lower than expected demand has led to carriers deferring deliveries of webOS devices, and will result in 2010 revenues being "well below" the $1.6bn to $1.8bn initially predicted.

gDial Pro Google Voice app hits Palm Pre, plus 9 other titles

We'll never argue with more apps showing up for the Palm Pre - after all, they just pave the way for a software download frenzy on the Palm Pixi when that arrives later in 2009 - so we're glad to hear of another two webOS titles fresh to the Palm Beta App Catalog.  First up is gDial Pro, an app which can be used to access and manage your Google Voice account; second comes iLike Concerts, a tool which looks out for your preferred artists and flags up nearby performances.

Verizon Begins Offering Unlimited Data in Prepaid Fashion, 3G Smartphones Included

Verizon Begins Offering Unlimited Data in Prepaid Fashion, 3G Smartphones Included

Prepaid services have been around for awhile, but for the longest time they were never good enough to catch the attention of the average consumer. After all, there's a lot hanging on that contract-free plan. You not only miss out on minutes, but it used to be that you didn't even get the same reception as the customers who signed a contract. Furthermore, you had to buy the phone out-right, without that discounted price tag. Well, while you still have to buy the phone out-right, prepaid plans have certainly become more popular, and Verizon has just made it even more attractive with the announcement that unlimited prepaid plans are now available. Oh, and you can use a Droid X, too.
