Palm Releases a Facebook Client for Palm OS

“Facebook lovers out there rejoice, there is now a native Facebook application for the PalmOS. The application can be downloaded at or over the air at The Palm Centro has been rather popular with the youth market, even though it didn’t have the killer Facebook app. Palm users probably always wished they were in the same boat with Blackberry users who have a native Facebook app, and iPhone users who have a iPhone-specific version of Facebook, but Palm users can heave a sigh of relief.
Some of the cool features of this new app are:

  • Send and receive Facebook messages, and respond to friend requests.
  • Capture video using your smartphone and post it to your Facebook profile.
  • View and post photos, right from your smartphone, or snap and send off new ones.
  • Receive News Feeds, change your status, and get friends’ status updates on the go.
  • Browse friends’ profiles, post messages to their wall, and send friend requests or search for old friends through Facebook.
  • Open your Contacts and dial your friends with just one touch. ” via

Review of GSM/UMTS smartphone Nokia 5320 XpressMusic

“Since it’s a music-heavy device, mounted along the left edge are three music buttons that allow for one-touch availability of the music player and Say and Play feature. Further down is the microSD memory card slot with its seal sitting flush with the flush, which makes it quite challenging to open. I liked the pattern on the side, it makes the 5320 look not so flat, makes it more eye-candy. The phone feels robust in the hand, doesn’t creak at all. On balance, I couldn’t find anything to fault it on as far as overall look and feel goes.” Read more here:

HTC Touch Dual (US version) review at mobiletechreview!

“Say hello to my little friend: the HTC Touch Dual North American version. It’s small, it’s soft-touch cuddly, yet it packs the power of Windows Mobile 6.1 Pro, 3G HSDPA for the US and a slide-out 20 key QWERTY keyboard that uses predictive text. At 400MHz it has the power to keep up, and there’s ample RAM to keep things moving smoothly. It runs HTC’s TouchFLO user interface, let’s call it TouchFLO 2.0 because it has new features since TouchFLO first debuted on the GSM HTC Touch, and it’s had the kinks worked out. While the recently released (overseas) HTC Touch Diamond may have stolen some of new US Touch Dual’s thunder with its even fancier and sexier TouchFLO 3D interface and shiny, slim good looks; the Touch Dual US model is the one folks here can actually put to better use now. Why? Because the Touch Dual is a quad band GSM phone that supports all US bands unlike the Diamond, and because the Dual has US 3G while the Diamond doesn’t. And while TouchFLO 3D shows great promise, it’s slower than TouchFLO “classic” on the Dual– call it growing pains.” Read more here:
