New version of the Palm Pre gets Wi-Fi certificate
A brand new version of the Palm Pre has showed up in the database of Wi-Fi Alliance. Its designation appears to be P101EWW, while the handset that´s currently on sale through Sprint is codenamed P100EWW. The rumor has it this is the version of the smartphone that will be distributed by Verizon. It has already caused some tongues to wag and we already know quite a lot about it. According to the latest information the device will be called the Palm Pre Plus. We do not want to speculate on the matter, but we need to point out that it´s not unlikely that we see this particular version of the device at CES 2010 in less than two weeks. Moreover, we hope to see Palm give all attendants a truly nice surprise by introducing some new WebOS-based handset.

Hard to get excited over this phone now, Palm dropped the ball with their lack of good memorable advertising. Instead we got Creepy Pale Lady. The phone had a shot of being where the Droid is now (positive brand recognition), but alas, it isn't. The only hope i see for it is Verizon picking up the ball that Palm dropped and starting a large advertising campaign.

I totally agree with you. Honestly, I've been waiting for the webos to come over to big red and boy am I happy that the wait is nearly over. I feel the webos has a lot of potential, at least for me it's the best operating system in the market. Hope Verizon can bring this baby to the top like it did with Droid!

I agree completely. Advertising is extremely important. That's part of how the iPhone is so successful. Everyone of the iPhones commercials leave me saying "ahh that's so cool". The Pre never did that and the Droid is kind of doing that but not quite.
