More Palm news

Apparently Palm is going to sell the new Pre Plus and Pixi Plus through Verizon. Pre Plus loses the navigation button I never used, doubles RAM and storage, and comes with the charging back cover you need for Touchstone. Pixi Plus gets Wi-Fi. No word on when the GSM version gets the same upgrades.

One of the interesting additions is "Palm Mobile Hotspot", an app that creates a Wi-Fi hotspot that you can use to access the Internet from up to five devices, like your laptop for instance. If your carrier allows it. Let's hope that O2 is cool with that.

Palm also talks about a webOS update next month that gives you video recording, hardware accelerated 3D games, Flash 10 and other improvements. This comes to all existing devices, again, when the carrier allows it. This could become tired, since we haven't even got the small update from before Xmas.

Not sure, if existing Pre devices get the Mobile Hotspot as well. The original Pixi does not have Wi-Fi so that is ruled out.

Volker, if you want tethering for Pre, your head on over to http://www.mytether.net

$10 US will get you tethering over USB, Bluetooth, or WiFi. I've been using it for months with a bunch of success. When accessing via WiFi, the Pre acts as a DHCP server so you can have multiple clients using it at the same time (Just like the Verizon-only client will give you).

How do you minimize a page/card without the navigation button ?
