In an e-mail Monday, an HP spokeswoman seemed to keep the door open to supporting the machine in response to the massive interest. - JA Castillo from Bookmarklet
Yeah, I still want one... - JA Castillo
It would be interesting to see if they actually restart manufacturing of new inventory and keep the price at $99. I doubt it, but would be pretty crazy if they did. - rönin
After reading that article, you could infer that they might...which would be bananas! - JA Castillo
i'd buy one at $99. - Big Joe Silence
Exactly, Joe... - JA Castillo

Does the HP TouchPad Have More Tablet Apps Than Android? | News & Opinion | PCMag.com
The HP TouchPad has nearly 400 apps at launch, HP said today. Apple's iPad hit the 100,000 mark recently, according to MacStories.net. But the five Google Android Honeycomb tablets that have come out since April only had 232 apps as of June 2, according to a frequently cited statistic from AndroidCentral.com. What's up with that? - JA Castillo from Bookmarklet

Before my phone decided to reset itself, bork all my settings and dump all my Homebrew apps, I had it set so that I had separate notifications for my Gmail and work accounts.
palm_pre.jpg
I had individual email icons along the bottom of the screen and when it was docked, a Gmail icon and a general envelop icon if I had emails in both accounts. Anyone have their Pre set this way or now how to do it? - JA Castillo
it does that even without homebrew. just start adding accounts. for Gmail it automatically picks up the gmail logo, exchange picks up the outlook logo, etc. - chrisofspades
Here's what I was looking for! Thanks for helping out Chris. :) http://bit.ly/adxNWp - JA Castillo
oh wow I never knew that was there. I've wanted that so many times. too bad I won't have this phone for much longer. - chrisofspades
Really? What are you looking to replace it with? - JA Castillo
I got the Evo. told you it wouldn't be much longer :) - chrisofspades
Did you look at or consider the Samsung Galaxy at all? What made the EVO the one for you? - JA Castillo
I did look at the Samsung phone too. they are pretty much the same phone, the biggest differences being the physical keyboard, the UI, and $50. since I didn't really like Samsung's keyboard or UI, I saved my $50 and went with the Evo. - chrisofspades
I fondled one of the Galaxy's at a SPRINT event announcing 4G here in Jax. It's spiffy, but felt a smidge cheaper than the EVO and yeah, it's $50 more expensive. Just curious what other think of the two. Hope to slide over to the EVO if I don't see any really spiffTASTIC WebOS hardware soon. - JA Castillo
The epic is way smoother / faster... even with 2.1 its faster than Anika's evo on 2.2. Oh and: http://friendfeed.com/iphone... - Adrian from Android
I don't see HP doing anything before the end of the year. - chrisofspades from Android
Yous a lie Adrian! Don't dis my phone man. - chrisofspades from Android
No lie, the processor is faster on epic, and I'm partial to physical keyboards, otherwise I would of gotten evo. - Adrian from Android

WebOS 2.0. It's really happening, and it's coming soon. Amidst the turmoil and the headlines and the doom-dropping, Palm's been busy: WebOS 2.0 looks like it'll be better than the original in basically every way. - JA Castillo from Bookmarklet

How-to: Tips for improving battery life | PreCentral.net
tip 1 - don't buy an Evo - Jeff (Team マクダジ )
why not? - chrisofspades
Yeah, my 12 - 15 hours of battery time on my EVO sucks! - Anika
Hahahaha, I was going to sarcastically suggest that the best way would be to leave it on a Touchstone charger as long as possible, as often as possible, but... that actually was their concluding suggestion. - Andrew C (✔)

Why Cisco Will Buy Palm « Ken Sheppardson
"[I]n the spirit of US Robotics acquisition of Palm back in 1995 and attempts by 3Com to integrate Palm after they merged with USR in 1997, I think there’s another bidder out there who can and should grab Palm while they can: Cisco. Here in no particular order are the reasons I think Cisco will make a bid for Palm, and why I think they just might be the highest bidder:" - Ken Sheppardson from Bookmarklet

"So what happened? Wasn't webOS the greatest thing since the original iPhone OS? Wasn't the Pre a great phone? How did Palm blow it so badly? I was a Pre user up until January of this past year, when the Nexus One came out. I went with Palm as far as I could, but in the end, I bailed. Here's where I think Palm went wrong, and why I left the Pre." - chrisofspades from Bookmarklet
Palm what now? - Shey
that is a good article JC. not sure how I missed. oh, maybe because I'm behind on my Google Reader. - chrisofspades
Supersonic? where? - chrisofspades
still not many details out about the Supersonic. what's the best Android phone out right now on Sprint? - chrisofspades
For now, probably the hero or moment, but the evo blows them away. still no keyboard so i'm kinda ehhhh, but we'll see, paul says the keyboard is great - Richard Lawler
you aint lyin, the specs on the Evo are ridiculous. - chrisofspades
yeah it's the new jesus phone. just wish sprint were announcing wimax in my area. - Richard Lawler
you could always move. then drop a mixtape about it. "rjcc presents FROM YPSI 2 LA". - chrisofspades
Official Brooktroit collabo due 2011, lol - Richard Lawler
EVO? Supersonic? Same phone or two different? - JA Castillo
same. - Richard Lawler
Thanks. And I have to agree...that phone looks amazing. - JA Castillo
When this drops, I will be one year into my 2 yr. contract w/ Sprint and I don't know what my upgrade options are...hmmm... - JA Castillo
You should qualify for Sprint Premier so can upgrade after a year. - Rodfather
Not if the phone is +$200! The "bank of wife" won't be open for that purchase! ;) - JA Castillo
lol, oh yeah, that contract snag. - Richard Lawler
You are so wrong...Palm will be bought by a company for the pattens they have and WEBOS will live on! - Matt Ratcliffe

Just got a Touchstone for my Pre. What a cool little device. :up:
Neatest implementation of a Touchstone I have seen has been one in a car cup-holder. Person used the USB car charger + Touchstone mounted to center console. - JA Castillo

"Update x2: several members in the comments with existing Mobile Hotspot plans note that their cost has magically dropped from $40 a month to $0. " - Rodfather from Bookmarklet
I hope this sets a trend. No more 'tethering' fee. People will want a WiFi hotspot paired with the iPad or other devices. - Rodfather

1.41.1 released for Palm Pre. Not sure of the bug fixes.

Someone tell my what I am doing wrong. Only the EVDO radio is on, no gps, no wifi, light use and I am down to 60% battery life in 6 hours. Is this NORMAL?
This saddens me. I almost feel like I can't leave the house without a 2nd battery :( - A Gunny named Slickback
My 8330 curve sipped battery and it had google sync running along with gps evdo etc. - A Gunny named Slickback
It's been better since 1.4, but I still have to bring a spare battery with me just in case. - Rodfather
