Some curious Palm Pre owners have discovered a "secret" option on their new phones to unlock "developer mode." This mode, according to Engadget, is used to connect the phone to a computer running the software development kit for the phone's webOS system. That's great, but you might be asking why Joystiq would report on cell phone hacks.

Developer mode is accessed by typing "upupdowndownleftrightleftrightbastart" at the phone's launcher screen. That's right, the Konami Code. The same code used to cheat your way through Life Force works on your phone. It joins a growing list of non-Konami-game things to reference the code, bringing new life (thirty of them!) to a button sequence first used in 1986.
