Untitled from FoneFrenzy on Vimeo.

The following video is a full walk through feature of the Palm Pixi and webOS. The overall handset is probably one of the best built phones I have held in my hand. The video is basic walk through of the Palm Pixi and webOS features the handset provides.


WebOS 1.3.2 released to Pixi owners, Pre still pending?


According to forum members over at Precentral have been receiving update 1.3.2 on their Pixi's. There is still no official change log released so we don't know what has changed  just yet. After the laundry list of bugs that have shown up in 1.3.1 this would be a welcome update for both Pixi and Pre ownsers alike. Hopefully this will pop up on our Pre's soon. We will keep you posted as we find out details and when the change log is released. Notice anything different in your Pixi? Let us know in comments.


WebOS SDK 1.3.1 change log released

With each big update comes a Mojo SDK update as well. A new API and some more documentation. Palm still has a lot of work to do when it comes to the SDK but every little thing helps. Here is the change log posted on their site.

Mojo SDK 1.3.1 Now Available, featuring Pixi emulator support and docs enhancements

Filed under: — Chuq Von Rospach @ 1:19 pm

Now that Palm Pixi is on the verge of shipping, we’ve released both webOS version 1.3.1 and the new version of the Mojo Software Development Kit.

The highlights of the Mojo SDK version 1.3.1 release are the following;

  • Enhanced Pixi support in emulator
  • API to keep screen from auto-dimming
  • Auto-generation of app Help / Support scene
  • Numerous framework doc enhancements

Elaborating a bit on the last item, we’ve heard the developer community’s feedback about webOS docs loud and clear. You’ll see the first efforts to expand, clarify, and improve quality of the docs with this release. Notably, we’ve provided new step-by-step installation instructions, with more thorough information about how to get your system ready before you download and install the SDK. Start on our Download page by selecting the version of the SDK you’d like to use.

For more complete information about Mojo SDK Version 1.3.1, see the Release Notes on webOSdev.



Palm Pre is headed to Mexico's Telcel November 27th

We've heard rumors before that Mexico was getting the Pre but now it is official. A post at the official Palm Blog says the Palm Pre is headed to Mexico on November 27th. The Palm Pre will be exclusive to TelCel in Mexico. Palm doesn't say specifically what version of WebOS the Pre will have but if WebOS version unity is to happen this month that there is hope that WebOS 1.3.1 should be available the day of or shortly after the launch. Palm doesn't mention the Pixi at all but we assume all but the Pixi should be out on multiple carriers around the world either by the end of the year or in the first half of 2010. For those of you who are living on the other side of the boarder hoping to get your hands on a non CDMA Palm Pre. Your wish is Palm's command. Head over to the official Telcel site and listen to their catchy song with Pre video. also Palm's site has a spanish Palm Pre layout similar to the Pixi and Palm Pre home page.

Adobe Bringing Flash 10.1 To webOS In First Half Of 2010


Adobe has announced that Flash Player 10.1 will be coming to a webOS device to you in the first half of 2010. Hope this will mean sooner (like January) than later.

On October 5th of this year at Adobe Max, Adobe Labs announced the release of the Flash 10.1 player and would be available in a Beta program to users. In a statement released on Adobe Labs website, it states "Adobe® Flash® Player 10.1 is the first runtime release of the Open Screen Project that enables uncompromised Web browsing of expressive applications, content and video across devices. With support for a broad range of mobile devices, including smartphones, netbooks, smartbooks and other Internet-connected devices, Flash Player 10.1 allows your content to reach your customers wherever they are. A beta is expected to be available for Windows Mobile, Palm webOS and desktop systems including Windows, Macintosh and Linux later this year."

The Open Screen Project was institued by an industry-wide initiative, led by Adobe and backed by other industry leaders who all share one clear vision: Enable consumers to engage with rich Internet experiences seamlessly across any device, anywhere.

See the video below to see how the webOS will look with Flash 10.1.


The Palm Pixi TV Ad, nicely done

The folks at Engadget already got their hands on the new Palm Pixi TV Ad that will be rolling very soon. I like it.


Palm Pixi running webOS 1.3.1 on Video

YouTube Link

Just days before the Pixi launch, WireFly leaked an unboxing and Hands-on video of the Pixi. Now another YouTube users by the name of stayfly2407 has posted a video with the Pixi running webOs 1.3.1, which was seeded to Devs not long ago. Although the video does not show any of the new features 1.3.1 may bring to the table, there's definitely a speed boost as shown in the unboxing video as well. The question is, will a new webOS update be available to us Pre users before the Palm Pixi Release?


Sprint Ad Advertises Palm Pixi as WiFi capable


This is a screw up on Sprint's part. The Sprint Holiday ad featuring the Palm Pixi is listing "Wifi capable" as one of its features. But you guys, the readers of PreThinking knows well that this gorgeous device does not have Wifi capability. And it's sad.

As a reminder, Palm Pixi launches on the 15th of this month, priced at $99 with contract, available at local Sprint Stores, Best Buy, RadioShack, and select Wal Mart locations. And definitely with the next webOS firmware.
