Submission + - HP WebOS Open Sourced (zdnet.com)

Tufriast writes: "In a surprising turn of events, HP is now open sourcing WebOS totally. This could be a boon for the platform as developers and consumers can freely tinker with the OS without fear of reprisal. In addition perhaps 3rd party companies will be more inclined to make hardware supporting it. HP will openly and actively contribute to the operating system as well."

Submission + - WebOS goes Open Source (zdnet.com)

An anonymous reader writes: After dropping billions into Palm and WebOS, HP contributes it to the open source community. Company officials told ZDNet that open sourcing WebOS was the best move after the company reviewed the various possibilities for the mobile operating system. There are two reads on the WebOS news: HP couldn’t find a reasonable buyer or the company is betting it can take off on its own.

Submission + - Palm Pre: Touchphone from Palm (palm.com)

Garette writes: Just got an email from Palm about their upcoming touch-screen phone "Palm Pre". As taken from the Pre website:
"Meet Palm Pre, a phone that's always thinking ahead to make your life easier. Pre pulls your different online calendars into one view, bringing you the information you want without having to search for it. Pre links your contacts from different sources, giving you one place to find what you need. And Pre delivers incoming messages1 and notifications in an intuitively subtle way, letting you react or respond however you want. People, events, information that matters. With Palm Pre, it'll come to you."
I had a Palm PDA a few years ago. I liked it but have since moved over to using a BlackBerry. What do fellow users think of the current and this upcoming Palm Phone when compared to BlackBerry Storm, iPhone etc...?
