Take a look through the trousers of time at what might have been; a Palm Pre 2 on Sprint. WebOSNation managed to grab the very rare prototype from a Palm employee and it fortunately worked on the Now Network without the need for any screwdrivers or warranty busting. Despite its second-hand status,

Resisting pressure from AT&T and Verizon, Sprint had stubbornly held out and refused to significantly lower pricing on its aging Palm Pre and Pixi -- despite the fact that they're not even the Plus versions offered by the other guys. Well, that finally changed a few days ago: you can now score

WebOS device hacking has reach some considerable heights recently with a mod to bring WiFi to a Sprint Palm Pixi, but it looks like even that's now been topped by this hack that finally brings the Pre Plus to Sprint. As you can probably guess, that involves a Sprint Palm Pre, a Pre Plus (from eithe

We know how the iPhone 4 sizes up against the aging 3GS -- but how does it fare against its fiercest competitors from all the major platforms? We wish we had some production Windows Phone 7 kit to check out here, but in the meantime, take a look at the results against the gruesome foursome of the E

The worst of Palm's fears may be over now that HP has played the knight-in-shining-armor role, but Sprint -- the States' number three carrier -- still has a ways to go before it can claim it's out of the woods, having gone a solid string of fiscal quarters now without posting a profit or a net gain

This doesn't really come as a surprise, but it's welcome news regardless. Sprint is now offering the Palm Pixi free with a two-year contract on its website. The deal isn't to be had in retail stores quite yet, but we assume that's also in the cards as well. The Pixi -- which has a slower processor

Likely a direct counterstrike to Verizon's $79.99 Pixi Plus, Sprint has dropped the retail price of its original WiFi-less Pixi all the way down to $49.99 after $100 mail-in rebate on a new two-year contract. As you might recall, the Pixi debuted at $100, but now that the Pre's leaving it in the du

Don't expect anything awesome (like \"new features\" for example), but Pre and Pixi owners are getting a minor boost today in the form of webOS 1.3.5.1, being pushed out to handsets as we write this. The ultra-minor \".1\" on the end there portends the cold, hard reality here, which is that the new ROM

Palm's second-ever webOS device wasn't exactly worthy of its initial $99 (on contract) price, but considering that it's darn near free in many instances these days, many of our gripes have less relevance today. Still, the Pixi is up against some seriously stiff competition these days, and it's not

We'd heard webOS 1.3.5 would be coming to the Pre on Sprint today, and here we go -- it's being pushed to devices right now. The official changelog is quite long, but the big-ticket tweaks include the removal of the app storage limit, better performance, and improved battery life. We'll let you kno
