Palm’s revival?

by Carl. 1 Comment

Palm  PrePalm webOS, Palm Pre, App Catalog, Palm has managed to create a strong buzz at CES 2009 and seems back in business with a updated and complete range of products.

Wi-Fi, GPS, keyboard, connected applications, calendars and contacts, and so much more, Palm Pre has all the features expected in the product category created by Apple’s iPhone.

Palm webOS applications are easy to write using Mojo, a new application framework based on the HTML5, CSS, and JavaScript standards. WebOS applications are installed and run directly on the device and have access to a wide range of device services.

Last but not the least, Palm will provide an App Catalog, on-device application catalog to deliver your apps directly to users. No doubt App Catalog will grow rapidly.

More about Palm Pre on the Palm Pre product page.

Is the community of Palm lovers still strong enough for a real Palm revival?

Internet radio to hit the roads?

by Carl. 0 Comments

At CES 2009, Blaupunkt and miRoamer have announced a partnership that will put internet radio into car dashboards for the first time.

Blaupunkt has put together two prototype devices, the Hamburg 600i for single-height dash configurations and the dual-height New Jersey 600i. The devices use the 3G phone’s Bluetooth connection to get online and access miRoamer’s thousands of internet radio stations. In addition to these stations, the devices can pull playlists put together and hosted online, pointing to MP3s and other music files found across the internet. Embedded 3G connectivity will probably be the next step…

Internet radio really looks more and more as the future of digital radio.
