Gizmo Day – Part 1

leave a comment »

Today we have quite nicer date, don’t You think? 9/09/09. Maybe this magi8cal numbers made some producers to organize their press events right today. The most expected is the event of Apple (possibly new iPods and the Beattles on the iTunes Store) and moreover – more locally – we have some Warsaw press events of Asus-Garmin duo and Lenovo on the schedule.
But the first one to start with news was Palm, presenting it’s new smart-phone called Pixi. Pixi is a younger and smaller sister to Palm Pre – it runs the same WebOS and has similar functions. Main thing different here is the uncovered keyboard (in Pre it is hidden under the touchscreen). Pixi shall be available before Holiday season. Moreover palm has cut down the Pre’s price – now for the phone with 2 year contract one must pay 149 USD (50 bucks less than previously).

How to launch a Palm Pre ? – step by step manual

with one comment

Amazing guys from the Engadget has presented a manual of launching the Palm Pre. As we know all will happen in next two weeks, 6th of June being precise. Three day before  the grand premiere there will be an Hollywood event with loads of celebrities, stars etc. Than some VIP parties and breakfasts and so on. The Pre would cost 199 USD (using a special offer). Of course all that in the US …

But even that not all will get their Pres as soon as they’d wish. It is said that each shop will get just few pieces of them (sleeping bags salers – get ready 🙂

And of course there is no SINGLE word about it’s availability in Europe, not mentioning Poland …
