Comments on: Palm Infocenter CES 2010 Meta-Liveblog

CES LogoGreetings, PICexicans! Today's the day: Palm will once again front the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas, and Palm Infocenter will be covering it... kinda. We're not there in person this year - pesky life stuff has conspired against all of us - but, Internet permitting, we'll be watching a live stream and liveblogging the event as it unfolds. And if there's no stream? Heck, we'll just monitor the coverage that will no doubt be flooding in from other sites and have ourselves a good old chat about it. Pre and Pixi Plus? Native development? All will be revealed in a few hours...

Hit the jump to participate in the chat. The intention is to open the gates around 10.45am. Why not join us?

Makes sense to me given that boring CES presentation.

if these announcements can spur app development and increase marketshare, they might be around in 2011.

Decision Time

Caspian @ 1/7/2010 12:13:01 PM # Q
Well, at least those of us on Verizon won't need to wait until June to decide between the Droid and the Pre. I am on the fence right now. The Droid has a lot going for it, except it doesn't support ActiveSync security protocols, which will keep it off our corporate network. I really want to like this Palm device, but it is going to depend a lot on pricing and seeing the Pre and Droid side by side.
Palm III> Palm IIIx> Palm IIIc> Sony T615> Sony T665> Sony TH55> Palm T|E> Palm T|E2> Palm T|X>Treo 700p

I've got a Pre and I've seen the Droid. Basically, I can sum it up this way:

If a big, beautiful screen is the most important thing to you, it's no contest. The Droid vastly outdoes the Pre in those terms. The apps on the Droid that I looked at weren't really better than the Pre's apps, except for the voice-enabled search. That was nice.

I like the size of my Pre better. The Droid is more the size of the old TX (except in terms of thickness, of course).

For now, the Droid has more apps, but since porting Linux apps to WebOS seems easier now, that might not hold up over time.

Honestly, if the Droid came out before the Pre, I might have gotten it instead, but for how I use my phone, it's a tough call. I really like having something small and lightweight, but still powerful, and I didn't see an equivalent to Synergy on the Droid.

Looks like Palm has officially swung the door open to open Linux app devs, so I would expect a boatload of new app options this year. Looks like this is the wave of the future, not only for Palm, but Android and other platforms. It really makes a lot of sense and finally after years is getting traction in mobile computing. Getting easier to see the day of platform agnostic software becoming a real possibility. Exciting for consumers.

Surely ATT will bring the Plus as well. I just wonder if VZW has another rediculous exclusive for 90-120 days, putting the GSM version into April - May.
