Palm hands out a $100.00 thank you card to developers

Palm has to be one of the most customer service based companies today. Palm does a fantastic job communicating with both developers and WebOS users on Facebook and Twitter. Palm clearly wants to succeed with happy customers and is working very hard to do so. I can't remember the last time Apple or Microsoft kicked down some cash to use a product they charge for, but Palm has done just that. As you can see from the photo above, Palm has given a $100.00 Amazon gift card to all developers in the early access program. Palm's way of saying thanks to the developers who are helping build the brand new App Catalog. This is the beginning of the end for Palm as far as the 'Beta' tag goes.

This month marks the end of the 'Beta' App Catalog. We are expecting a WebOS update soon as well as an update to the App Catalog with some possible surprises to the interface and functionality. Hopefully we will see new apps continue to show up daily and we also hope to see some more apps by the more popular developers from other platforms. So developers you have 100$ Amazon gift card. If you are planning on getting a WebOS device with $100.00 on Amazon right now you can purchase 4 Palm Pixi's with a contract. Yup the Pixi is only $24.99 and the Pre is $79.99. Good stuff and on behalf of all the developers...


Thank you Palm!

$79? I paid $300.. because after turning in my rebate form at the store on day 1, 5 months later I got a letter in the mail saying the rebate is invalidated because my Pre is on my corporate plan (I paid for the device personally though). Ugh

A shining example of the things Palm is doing right. Hoping they'll add more and more of these "shining examples" in the future! :)
