Palm Pre Plus and Pixi Plus, updating the equipment

As we expected for days, devices with operating system webOS have been updated at the hardware, and its debut on the market will be in the US by the operator Verizon. We will know these models as Palm Pre Plus and Palm Pixi Plus.

All the information we had has been confirmed, and we have also found some pleasant surprises, for those of you who were not aware of this topic, I would like to put you in a situation: in the case of the star terminal of the house, the Palm Pre Plus, both storage memory and RAM have been doubled, so we find 16GB and 512MB respectively.

In terms of appliance design middle button disappears and directly it has the housing ready to charge in the * Touchstone, which by the way is better quality than the original.

In a quick reflection we can determine that the changes are good, but the ones we find in its little sister, the Palm Pixi Plus who has found the solution to his main problem, the lack of WiFi connectivity. In addition, the terminal is presented to a more general public with the possibility of choosing between five colors: green, blue, black, orange and pink.

Tethering and promoting application development

The next afternoon surprise, common to both devices, is found in a new application that gives us the possibility of tethering with up to 5 devices, or what is the same: distribute the data connection that comes from the network to other devices, creating a WiFi network from the 3G connection.

From the point of view software Palm is making a significant effort to improve the situation of the platform, in need of development. So a development program is created, at the same time that it will facilitate the incorporation of new applications.

An interesting detail is the gaming platform approach Palm wants to give its devices, with special interest in 3D games, and the possibility of making communications while we play. It has the support of important companies in the sector, and such outstanding games as Need for Speed ​​Undercover or The Sims 3.

For February we leave the update to webOS 1.4, in her the support for Adobe Flash 10.1 initially in Palm Pre, and the possibility to record video and share it on the network.
