Palm’s webOS 2.0 SDK Heading to Some Developers Today

When it comes to webOS, there's many who believe that the mobile Operating System developed by Palm is far from over and done with.

A good sign that things are still coming down the pipe broke cover today, as Palm has officially announced that the latest version of their SDK, for webOS 2.0, has now begun to find its way to some developers out there.

HTC EVO 4G Touchstone hack adds wireless charging [Video]

We'll be the first to admit; heavy use of the HTC EVO 4G's WiMAX connectivity will see the battery gauge drop in short order, so anything that makes it easier to top up the juice has to be a good thing.  That's why YouTuber infinitemods' DIY hack to get the Sprint EVO 4G working with a Palm Touchstone inductive charger is so impressive: it allows for easy drop-and-charge powering of the smartphone, just as you'd get with the Pre Plus or Pixi Plus.

O2 Palm Pre GSM review

O2 Palm Pre GSM review

For European consumers, the Palm Pre has been a long time coming. Announced - in CDMA form - back in January 2009, with Palm coyly dancing around the matter of a GSM version until its Sprint launch took place in June, the smartphone has even gained a sibling (in the shape of the Palm Pixi) before those across the Atlantic have had a chance to play with the original. That's all finally changing this month, with carrier O2 exclusively offering the Pre in the UK and Ireland from October 16th and Germany from October 13th. Has time dulled the Pre's appeal? SlashGear have been testing out the GSM Palm Pre; check out our full review after the cut.

Palm Pixi powered by WebOS [Hands-on]

Rumors of Palm releasing a candybar phone with front-facing QWERTY keyboard have been around since the launch of the Palm Pre.  Well, as of tonight the Pixi is no longer a rumor.  Similar to the Palm Pre, Pixi is powered by WebOS and has a multi-touch capacitive display, 8GB of internal user storage memory, the same removable 1150 mAh battery and proximity sensor, among other things.  However it squeezes all of that into an incredibly compact casing: just 111 x 55 x 10.85 mm, thinner than an iPhone 3GS.
