PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless So, today at CES, Palm held its big keynote thing. Palm's CEO, Jon Rubinstein, aided by several others, had a whole lot to talk about for just one hour, and boy, is this good stuff or what. We've got a boatload of stuff to talk about: two new phones exclusive to Verizon, tethering, video support, Flash 10, native application development, the official launch of the completely open app distribution model we've talked about before, and much more.

I'm a little dissapointed at the whole "exclusive to" bit, but oh well. I wouldn't mind it so much if "last year's model" was unlocked or available on all carriers. That would make me rather happy! I'd love it if they followed Google or Blackberry's lead, having the Pre being an ubiquitous offering. I'd love to have a Pre when my Centro dies (no time soon, I hope), and I've honestly got no reason to move off of AT&T at the moment...

Still, being on two carriers is much better than just one! ;)

Palm announced the Pre and Pixi would be on AT&T also, I think the Pre Plus and Pixi Plus are currently Verizon exclusives though.

I just saw that at another tech site and I'm quite pleased! Thanks for pointing it out, though (I could've easily missed it).

Now if I can just buy it outright so I don't have to get a data plan I'll be all set. My Centro isn't used as a smart phone, just as a "moderately bright but underachieving" phone, and it does great by me. Word processing, spreadsheet, PIM, convenient camera, etc., is all I want, really.

Oh, and making phone calls. Can't forget that! ;)
