    Palm has just released a beta software development kit for the next major version of its homegrown operation system, being dubbed webOS 2.0, which promises several attractive features for end-users and developers alike. For those keeping track, this will be the twelfth edition of webOS since its debut in June of last year, and the first major full-number version jump. Recently acquired by computing and information services giant Hewlett Packard, Palm has seen a reinvigorated interest in its platform that has been well-received by both critics and consumers. According to both Pre Central ...

    Three weeks after its counterparts on the Sprint network got the same treatment, Verizon's Palm Pixi Plus owners are starting to see the highly-anticipated webOS 1.4.5 update being offered for download. What makes this latest version of Palm's proprietary operating system so important is that it allows users to run 3D games and apps developed with the company's PDK software development kit. Interestingly enough, while Sprint's 1.4.5 rollout hit both the Pre and Pixi simultaneously, it is reportedly only Pixi (Plus) users who are seeing the upgrade right away this time around -- Verizon Pre ...

    webOS recently got an update to firmware version 1.4.5, which brings to the Palm Pre and Palm Pixi a 3D gaming experience. According to PreCentral, even the Palm Pixi's gaming experience is good, despite having a more limited processor than its more capable sibling, the Palm Pre and Palm Pre Plus. The Pixi is said to have a more limited frame rate in game play, but the over all experience is good. (via: PreCentral)

    We've seen the HTC EVO 4G being Modded to Charge Via Palm Pre Touchstone Charger from a hacker that modded his Sprint HTC EVO 4G to wirelessly charge via the induction charging mechanism of the Palm Pre's Touchstone charger. Inspired by this, XDA Developers' Carnivore9 has made his mod to charge the T-Mobile HD2 using the Palm Pixi charger via induction charging. I hope all the tech guys out there will understand and love this! For the rest of us, it's a nice "WOW-Mod"! (Source: XDA Developers)

If you're in need of some Palm gear, be sure to get noticed while you're using your webOS phone in public. You can read more about Palm's random acts of wow campaign from the company's blog. According to Palm, "These Palm envoys could show up in any country where Palm phones are sold. And there are no catches, no obligations, and no strings attached."

    It looks like Verizon Wireless is running a promotion giving away the mobile hotspot service on the Palm Pre Plus and Pixi Plus for free.

    While we're campaigning for Windows Mobile ports to Windows Phone 7 Series, Palm's on their own mission to get developers to port their iPhone apps to webOS based smartphones, such as the Palm Pre and the Pre Plus. According to Electronostia, "The kit's approach, which runs native code within the platform's web-based framework, is said by AllThingsD to be so direct that an iPhone game can be converted in a "matter of days." Few changes are necessary, and the performance is purportedly as fast as on its native Apple counterpart." The tech news site also "attests" that some iPhone ...

    The Mobile Hotspot app that debuted on the Verizon Wireless Palm Pre Plus and Palm Pixi Plus requires a special tethering add-on that costs $40 per month for the ability to turn your webOS device(s) into a mobile hotspot and share your Verizon Wireless mobile broadband conenction with up to five other devices. Those who do not want to fork out the extra $40 per month can look towards unofficial solutions, such as the MyTether app, which is a "homebrew" app, which requires some hackery similar to the iPhone jailbreak process. The app costs a one-time charge of $15 for the privilege of ...

    The Palm Pre Plus and Palm Pixi Plus, which is now available exclusively on Verizon Wireless, may be making its way into GSM form for AT&T and a global release in the future according to some testing information. At CES this year, AT&T had stated that it will be getting two webOS devices, though which devices were not disclosed. It would make sense that the upgraded Plus models would be a hot commodity for the GSM markets as both the Pre Plus and Pixi Plus improves on their non-plus models from Sprint, with the former adding double the RAM and double the storage while the lesser expensive ...

    Quite a few Windows Mobile users have been scoffing at the Verizon Wireless Palm Pre Plus and Palm Pixi Plus with the hotspot capable Mobile Hotspot app, which enables the Palm models to act like a mobile hotspot allowing you to share your VZW mobile broadband connection and tether your laptop to the internet. As Windows Mobile users, you probably have heard of the HTC Internet Sharing app, an HTC-made free app for HTC Windows Mobile devices, that offers the same functionality. Additionally, there's also a paid app called WMWiFiRouter that does the trick as well. However, where the webOS ...

    We had talked about the contract pricing and promotions for the Verizon Wireless Palm Pre Plus and Palm Pixi Plus, but there are a few readers who have asked me about non-contract pricing. For the commitment-phobe who can't seem to pick up the pen and sign away two years of their life over to Verizon Wireless, the Palm Pre Plus will retail for $600 sans contract and the Palm Pixi Plus will go for $400. According to the Verizon Wireless rep that we spoke with, although you can purchase the phone at its full price, this isn't pre-paid pricing: "It essentially is a month to month contract ...

    We have reviewed the Palm Pre Plus and Palm Pixi Plus on wireless CDMA/EVDO carrier Verizon Wireless. The most notable upgrade for the webOS devices--previously available on Sprint sans the Plus moniker--is the ability to share the Pre Plus' and Pixi Plus' internet connection with up to five other devices, similar to the stand-alone MiFi. WiFi tethering, unlike Bluetooth tethering, removes some of the bottleneck in speed that Bluetooth may have. Additionally, it allows multiple simultaneous connections. This way, your Pre Plus can bless your laptop, Zune HD, or iPod Touch with wireless ...

    While not a lot has changed between the Sprint Palm Pre and the Sprint Palm Pixi on the outside, Palm made some incremental upgrades that give both devices a more polished look befitting of their "plus" moniker on Verizon Wireless; the devices were officially announced at CES earlier in the month. In the video below, we'll give you a quick unboxing and hardware tour of the Palm Pixi Plus and Palm Pre Plus, which will both be available on Verizon Wireless beginning January 25.
