webOS 2.1 arrives on original Palm Pre, unofficially

HP caused a veritable maelstrom recently when it announced that owners of the Palm Pre, Pre Plus, and Pixi wouldn't be getting an upgrade to webOS 2. The company then dangled an olive branch, saying that it would "do something" for those users, but never specified what that something might be. PreCentral, however, has been tracking interesting results from HP's update checker recently and...

Crosstalk for webOS enables easy Wi-Fi file sharing between devices

HP is holding a big webOS shindig tomorrow, and we're hoping that means the release of webOS 2 for the original Pre, Pre Plus and Pixi is imminent. Why?

Designed for the new OS, Crosstalk enables users to share files from their webOS devices with nearby friends (who also happen to be using a webOS 2 device)....

Worms brings classic trajectory warfare to webOS

While those of us with first generation webOS devices like the Palm Pre and Pixi wait for our shiny, new OS to arrive, it helps to have some diversions on hand to help pass the time.

One of the marquee apps for webOS has received a significant update, with Evernote adding loads of new functionality to its latest version.

Angry Birds and Glow Hockey win $100,000 in Palm's PDK Hot Apps Competition

Spotify for webOS is out, you still need a subscription to use it

Spotify has just launched another mobile app, this time for Palm's (now HP's) webOS. Those who own smartphones running this operating system, such as the Palm Pre and the Palm Pixi can now use their Spotify Premium subscriptions while on the go as well. Because, as with all other Spotify mobile applications, a Premium account is required for this app to work. Feature-wise, it's pretty much got...

HP ad gives webOS some ePrint love

HP has launched a commercial that details the benefits of its ePrint 'cloud' printing solution while demoing it on a webOS-running Palm Pre. That's pretty much to be expected, since HP does now own Palm after all, but what's a bit funny is that there's no 'magical' voodoo going on behind the scenes here between the webOS phone and the printer as the ad implies. HP's ePrint tech relies on...

Palm stock now worthless, vultures begin circling overhead

The story of Palm isn't about a bad product -- hey, the Pre and WebOS are actually pretty cool -- but it is about a laundry list of bad decisions and bad breaks that may have ultimately doomed the company. Palm stock crashed to 4 dollars over the weekend, and with some analysts valuing it at zero dollars, a great deal of speculation about the future of the brand ensued. What the heck happened,...

Gowalla hits webOS with a slick new client

We covered location-based game Foursquare's webOS client earlier in the year, noting that competitor Gowalla had a client for the Palm Pre and Pixi 'in the works' - and today, just in time for SXSW, the Gowalla webOS client has appeared in the App Store. As with all things Gowalla, the client is slickly designed, and includes all the bells and whistles found in the Gowalla iPhone app from Checking...

Facebook for webOS loses its Twitter envy and finally becomes useful

It's been a little while since Facebook launched their (admittedly barebones) application for Palm's webOS devices -- that's the Pre and Pixi to you and I. However, in amongst the news of the webOS 1.4 update dropping earlier this week, Facebook have also released an all-new version of the application that adds a number of useful features. Whilst the original version was handy for checking on...

Palm webOS update 1.4 goes live for Pre and Pixi users

Way back in January at the Consumer Electronics Show, Palm announced the webOS 1.4 update for Pre and Pixi devices, and late last week it finally dropped. The biggest new feature is the much-craved video recording and sharing (complete with Facebook and YouTube uploading), though the Palm release notes show there's a fair amount more in the update: Mobile Hotspot application, that turns your...
