Canadian carrier Rogers is the first carrier in North America to begin offering a plan for the Palm Pre 2, offering it for $99 on a three year contract. 

Reports indicate that Rogers' Pre 2 is pretty much identical to the currently offerered unlocked Pre 2 for a much higher $450. Although with the Rogers plan you will pay much more in the long run.

Palm Pre 2 pre-orders begin on November 8th

Posted by Patrick Lambert Categories: Cell Phones, Handhelds

Looks like pre-orders for the Palm Pre 2 will be started on November 8th! After what was an overlooked debut, the Palm Pre and it's new WebOS failed to gain much momentum. Still, HP is hoping that this new revised version will succeed where it's predecessor did not. Very little is known about the Palm Pre 2, but we do know that Verizon documents have it scheduled for November. So for those who liked the Palm device and want an updated version, more info should be coming out really soon, and seriously, webOS 2.0 is looking mighty fine.

Become Palm’s spokesperson

Posted by John Kilhefner Categories: Cell Phones, Videos

The masked maniac known previously as “The Defender” of the webOS community is back, and this time he wants to sell some phones...crazy style. Apparently, he sent in an audition tape to HP, err, Palm (or is it the other way around??) pretty much telling them that he is going to be their spokesperson. And to prove that point, he brought some clips! HPalm is really trying to get the community involved to spread the word of webOS 2.0 and the Palm Pre 2 by getting fans to post their own videos on YouTube. Palm will highlight their favorite videos, thus immortalizing you in fifteen minutes of internet stardom! Check out the masked man's own proposal above.

webOS 2.0 over-the-air update coming soon

HP Palm Pre 2 webos 2.0

Getting a little tired of your Palm Pre falling to the wayside in favor of other more popular operating systems, like Android and iOS4? Well, faithful Pre users will finally be able to upgrade without switching loyalties to another OS, as webOS 2.0 is coming a lot sooner than you expected. First showing up on the more hardware advance Palm Pre 2, webOS 2.0 will also be available with most of its advancements via an over-the-air update. Here are some of the features you can expect with webOS 2.0: 
 
Stacks
WebOS 2.0 introduces a more effective way of multitasking - stacking. With the new stacking feature your “cards” can be sorted one on top of another for related grouping, and can be manually maneuvered around to your liking. This takes the already comprehensive (see what I did there?) multitasking features of the Pre to new, more convenient heights. 
 
Just Type…
The new Just Type feature allows you to do exactly what the name suggests and just start typing. From there you will be able to quickly compose a text message, email, note, update your status on Facebook, or search the internet. Not to mention that Just Type will definitely become integrated into publishers’ apps, so the possibilities are endless.
