PalmCast Live, 8pm Eastern: yes, we will talk about webOS 2.0 13

PalmCast Live!

Don't know if you've noticed, but we have plenty to chat about tonight for PalmCast Live. 8pm Eastern is the time and you can bet that webOS 2.0 is the subject.

We know you'll have a ton of questions, so we can't promise we'll get to all of them, but we'll get to as much as we can. Two good vectors: Tweet questions to us with the #palmcast hashtag and email

So join us tonight at 8 PM Eastern where we'll be manhandling webOS 2.0 and a pre-production Palm Pre 2 device live. Good times? Good times.



hey, j/w if you could put up a video about how 2.0 goes about handling a stack of a bunch of cards, like 10. Moving the cards and goin between apps

There is much outrage among Sprint users who want to upgrade their original Pre (including myself). According to Palm on their Facebook page, US carriers decide for themselves which handsets they would like to carry. They have recommended that if we would like to see the Pre 2 and other HPalm hardware on Sprint, we need to make ourselves heard! I think it would be a good idea to mention on the Palmcast that Sprint users should use and let Sprint know that you want the Pre 2!

I turned to Sprint myself not only because they had the original Pre and the lowest priced plans, but because I've never had a majorly negative experience with them, where as the other carriers (I'm especially looking at you, AT&T) have...well let's say left a sour taste in my mouth. I know others have had similar experiences and are very loyal to Sprint for this reason as well. We need to rally the Sprint crowd - don't let them forget about us, guys!

If you write to Sprint, please be sure you let them know why you love Palm phones, webOS, and of course why you love Sprint and want to stay with them. Oh, and please be polite; they'll never listen if we write angry letters (who needs the aggrivation, right?), but if we show them how excited we actually are about the possibility of using this phone (and future webOS handsets) on their network, they might just take notice!

I concur... However, Sprint should have had some idea of their sales on the Palm Pre, and figure that the Pre2 would be greatly appreciated by webos users. As for tonight Palmcast... I'm looking forward to it. :-D

I don't think you have to worry. I think Sprint will carry it by January. Especially since you probably won't see it on Verizon or ATT until December.

Question is, do you really want it? I'm thinking of giving the Epic 4G a try for a month. I'm sure we'll hear more within that time frame, and I can just return it by Nov. 20th and be totally cool.

Come to think of it, I'll wait till January, buy the Epic at the beginning of the month, and if I like it, I'll keep it, if I don't and I see that Palm will have a new 4g device on the way to Sprint, then I'll return it.

Dieter, I was cursing you in my head yesterday about no new posts. Now I see you have been very busy. I take it all back. My hero!!!!!!!!!!

please have the podcast ready for download asap through Dr. Podder!!!


Don't make us wait until Thursday or Friday.



I hope they get this Palmcast released to the feeds fairly soon - I'm anxious to hear it.

yah, no need to edit podcast, I want it all!

it's 5..dnt wana get up to my computer..cant wait for flash on my phone!!

I think I speak for everyone (except the trolls) when I say thanks guys for an epic day of coverage. I'm sure it was hard sitting on this news.

One thing I find continually to be amazing is how Palm/HP interacts with their fanbase. Between giving you guys the sneak peek and the attitude towards homebrew, it really is awesome. You would never see Apple and der fuhrer Jobs cultivate such a relationship, it really is awesome.

So, what takes so long to make the podcast available for download?
