Review: Palm Pre 2 from Rogers

palm-pre-2

Palm’s latest reboot of the venerable Pre is the Pre 2. I would have said “obviously the Pre 2” but it isn’t so obvious. First there was the Pre, then the Pre Plus and now the Pre 2. With math skills like that it’s no wonder Palm hasn’t made any money! (sorry Palm, I jest) […]

Palm Pre 2

On Friday I received a long awaited review unit for the Palm Pre 2. I’ve been wanted to get my hands on one of these ever since hearing about it, as I have loved using my Palm Pre (original). Now, I know a lot of people wonder why Palm bothered with a phone that is […]

05182010008

In a little bit I will be putting together a comparison of two low end smartphones; the Nokia 5230 and Palm Pre. The Nokia 5230 sells for just $180 with no contract on the WIND Mobile network and the Palm Pre for $299 on the Bell network. I was actually going to include the HTC […]

Got me Some Palm Pre!

Question: If Palm Brings the Heat…

Palm_logo

Palm is in a fight for its life. Not only is Palm not making profit but it can’t find a buyer (yet?). Palm’s CEO Jon Rubinstein thinks they can still go it alone, which they may have to do with a valuation still topping $1 billion (for some strange reason). We’ll have to see how […]

Palm, You’ll Be Missed

Palm_logo

I hate to say “I told you so”. Actually, in this case I really do hate to say it. Palm is going down the toilet. I’m certainly not on my own in writing doom and gloom on Palm. It certainly seems that something will need to change in a very large way for Palm to […]
