Palm Mansion to Feature 5-Inch Display, webOS 2.0 Coming to All Devices Soon [UPDATE: Palm's Josh Marinacci Video Speech Added]

When Palm and HP officially announced the webOS 2.0-equipped Palm Pre 2, we hear that the device would be launching on Verizon in the United States "in the coming months." For HP and Palm, that seems to be the slogan of choice, when it comes to webOS. Today, Josh Marinacci confirmed that webOS 2.0 would indeed be coming to all of the available devices "in the coming months." However, perhaps more interesting, is a new rumor floating around that the Palm Mansion, a name that we've heard floating around before, will feature a 5-inch display.

Hands-On Around the Web with the Nook Color [Plus Barnes&Noble Press Release]

Two things: let's talk about what it feels like to use this device, AND, lets look at the full press release on the Nook Color just released by Barnes & Noble a moment ago. Our pals at CrunchGear are there at the event with commentary, Engadget too, plus a couple other friends are sure to pop up along the way. It's thin, it's got a rubbery back, and it's got a loop to put a chain through. It's nice to hold, very bright and easy on the eyes, and also you can read books on it!

Palm Pre 2 Hitting Verizon Shelves November 11th, Sources Claim

Palm Pre 2 Hitting Verizon Shelves November 11th, Sources Claim

We've already seen an internal training document claiming that the Palm Pre 2 would be landing on Verizon's network some time in the future, but then we got confirmation from HP that the device, the true successor to the original Palm Pre (or Palm Pre Plus, even) would be landing on Verizon "in the coming months." To some, that "coming months" part would mean that HP is aiming for a holiday shopping release, but it could also mean that they'll miss that date and land some time in early 2011. According to some sources speaking with Droid-Life, it may be sooner than we all assumed.

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.

Palm tip “exciting” next year with new devices & webOS update

While HP has been keen to talk up the positive benefits of acquiring Palm and webOS, they've also been reluctant to commit to any specifics - we've heard about tablets and printers running the platform, but nothing that left us particularly confident about smartphones.  Now, thanks to an unnamed Palm spokesperson talking during an AT&T developers webinar, we have a few more tidbits; nothing concrete, but confirmation that Palm is "working on future devices" together with a "new version of the OS".

Palm App Catalog glitch locks out webOS users

Palm App Catalog glitch locks out webOS users

Palm's App Catalog appears to have suffered a meltdown of sorts, with users of Palm Pre, Pixi, Pre Plus and Pixi Plus handsets reporting that after having downloaded a new title - whether paid or free - no aftermarket software will run properly.  The issue remains even after fully erasing and restarting the phone; in fact, the apps are still installed even after that process is completed.  However core functionality - calls, messaging and data - are all unaffected.

Kobo and Borders have announced that the Kobo ereader is now available for preorder, and will begin shipping from June 17th 2010.  Priced at $149.99, the Kobo lacks WiFi or 3G but does at least come with Bluetooth, for wireless transfers of ebooks from your computer to the device; those ebooks, Borders hope, come from their own selection of over 1m titles, though you can also load up any DRM-free ePub or PDF content.
