The announcement did not say if the phone will ever reach Asia. (Asa pa us! HP Palm’s newsletter subscription page does not even list our continent.)
French Palm users will be able to get it this Friday on SFR telecom. In US and Canada, the new phone will be available “in the coming months.”
Palm HP said Pre 2 is faster as it is the first Palm phone with a gigahertz processor. It also has a vivid glass touchscreen.
Meanwhile, current users of earlier webOS phones — Palm Pre, Pixi, and Pre Plus — may wait for a while for the webOS 2.0. HP Palm said the update “will be delivered to existing customers in the coming months.”
Here are some of the features of webOS 2.0:
- True Multitasking – lets users switch between applications without closing anything. The new Stacks feature groups together open apps to easily manage multiple tasks.
- Just Type – to do something, just type even without opening an app.
- HP Synergy – with this feature, users just need to sign in to their Facebook, Google, MicrosoftÂ® Exchange, LinkedIn and Yahoo! accounts and their information automatically populates the phone.
- Exhibition – lets users run apps designed specifically for the Palm Touchstone Charging Dock, making charging time a useful time.
WebOS 2.0′s browser also supports a beta of Adobe Flash Player 10.1 and adds support for more HTML5 features, including geolocation support. It also allows users to tag their favorite contacts and its unified Messaging app adds Yahoo! Messenger. (Yahoooo!!!)
The new OS also includes QuickOffice and Facebook 2.0 and now supports BluetoothÂ® keyboards.
ABS-CBN Global is looking for a new media producer to handle The Filipino Channel Online (TFCNow), its online video and audio streaming subscription service that distributes ABS-CBN programs to Filipinos all over the world.
If you have a degree and experience in mass communication or marketing, at least 30 years old, and live on the Web like I do, you may want to apply.
Don’t miss the opportunity to work with Cris Concepcion — one of my favorite Yahoos, who labored for the creation of our office and led its sales and operations before joining the broadcast giant last year as head of new media and technology.
Nokia and Yahoo! today announced a partnership in online mapping and communication services.
In this worldwide alliance, Nokia’s Ovi Maps will power Yahoo!’s maps and navigation services, while Yahoo! will be the provider of Nokia’s email and chat services.
The two companies are also planning to integrate user logins. Initially, Nokia users may access select Yahoo! properties using their Ovi user IDs.
While US-based observers and critics may frown at this development as an alliance between an also-ran and a small player, it has great impact in emerging markets such as the Philippines. Yahoo! is used by at least 80% of Internet users in the Philippines, while Nokia is the most popular cellphone brand (with 59% device manufacturer share in Admob’s latest metrics) . In the Philippines, this could only be described as a partnership between two tech giants.

Update: A Reuters report said Palm hired bankers “to assess strategic options for the company, including a potential sale.” Citing an anonymous source, the report added that Palm could look for additional financing or license webOS if it chooses not to sell itself.
After days of rumors that certain companies are looking at buying Palm, Inc. — the maker of smartphones Treo, Centro, Pre, and Pixi — Bloomberg reported today that the company is working with investment firms to find a buyer.
The report said among the possible buyers are Chinese laptop maker Lenovo and Taiwanese mobile phone manufacturer HTC, which creates phones for Google’s Android operating system. Chinese firms Huawei Technologies Co. and ZTE Corp. — yes, it’s the same ZTE of the ZTE/NBN Scandal fame!
Palm has yet to issue a comment on this issue, and none of the reported possible buyers confirmed their interest in buying the PDA pioneer.
Palm announced today that webOS is coming to AT&T, a GSM-based telecom in the US.
Palm Pre Plus and Palm Pixi Plus will be available “in the coming months,” according to the company’s official blog.
The first-generation models of Palm Pre and Pixi are already being offered by GSM carriers in Europe, but Pre units are very scarce here in the Philippines. I wonder if this piece of news will pave the way for the availability of these Palm phones here, where telecoms are also using GSM technology.
Will this latest announcement also boost the company’s falling stocks and reverse the widespread perception that Palm is going down?
