Palm Pre Plus Hack – How to WiFi Tether without Paying $40/month!

My good friend Raja, the developer of the original Palm Pre Wifi tethering app, has just pinged me that his My Tether app now officially supports WiFi tethering on the Palm Pre Plus, meaning you won’t have to pay $40/month for Mobile HotSpot.

Verizon Palm Pre Plus and Pixi Plus Leaked Specs!

It looks like someone got hands on specs for Verizon’s Palm Pre/Pixi Plus models, there’s no noticeable difference between the Sprint versions other than storage space (that’s doubled) but I speculate that the new “Plus” versions will come with faster processor, more memory, and hopefully zippier web browser.

Engadget Palm Pre/Pixi App Now Available!

Looks like one of my favorite tech blogs Engadget has one of the first Palm Pre/Pixi apps for the year 2010, it basically lets you browser Engadget in mobile style.   Although I probably won’t need it because the built-in browser on the Palm Pre works fine for me but I will definitely have to check it out.

This probably means that Engadget is hot on heels for Palm Pre/Pixi to do well this year.  I think it could do very well although I can’t wait to get my hands on a Nexus One from Google.

Here’s a rather cool DIY that shows you how to mount a custom Palm Pre Touchstone Mount for your car.  I think this goes well with Sprint’s on-board voice directions GPS program although I still prefer GoogleMaps as it seems more accurate.
