PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless More mobile phone news! Rumours of an upcoming Palm Pre 2 have been swirling for a while, but now a French carrier has jumped the gun and spilled all the beans. Clearly a transitional device to bridge the gap between the first true HP devices, the devices updates and streamlines the Palm Pre Plus with an updated case, display, and internals. Also, it will pack webOS 2.0.

+1 to that. The fact that viewing some web pages and forums on phones requires all sorts of scrolling gestures doesn't mean that all phones should change--it means the sites need to change. Sites either need to suck it up and create mobile-friendly version, or the browser makers and HTML5 standards committee need to implement logic to refactor web pages based on screen size. Some mobile browsers do this already.

The issue is that sites don't want you viewing mobile versions and skipping all those wonderful ads. I don't want the full desktop experience on my phone. I want an experience that's customized for a mobile experience, which isn't just about screen size, but also about how i'm using it (aka, on the go). Have fun scrolling around full web sites. And, Apple's attack on Flash notwithstanding, have fun waiting for Flash sites to load on your mobile.
