Palm devices coming in 2018 without WebOS

Recommended Posts

https://www.slashgear.com/palm-devices-coming-in-2018-without-webos-30497716/

A new Palm smartphone has been tipped to be coming in the year 2018, made by the folks at TCL. The Palm brand has been in limbo for the past half-decade, moving in and out of HP-connected devices then on into relative obscurity. The Palm operating system was acquired by LG and continues to be used (in some form or another) in LG smart TVs to this day – as such, it won’t be coming with the Palm phone set for next year.

On the day when gesture controls for the next iPhone just started to look like the last phone version of Palm OS, word appears of Palm’s resurgence. Sadly, this resurgence almost certainly wont include Palm OS. Word comes from Android Planet that TCL Marketing Manager Stefan Streit confirmed that they’ve finally gotten to a place where they can make a Palm phone. TCL acquired the Palm brand all the way back in 2011.

Streit apparently suggested that new Palm devices would be announced in early 2018. While Streit did not specify which devices would be coming, AP suggested that a smartphone and a new PalmPilot would be obvious releases.

TCL suggested with AP that they’ve created a collection of aims with each of the brands they currently command. With Alcatel, they target so-called “millenials”. With BlackBerry, they target the business market. Palm would be made for adult users, both those that remember Palm as a brand they trusted in their past, and for those that will seek out Palm as a brand new high-quality smartphone brand.

Hopefully TCL can bring as much quality to the hardware with Palm as they have with both Alcatel and BlackBerry. If they do, if they can, Samsung might want to watch its back – at least for the Galaxy Note business. Prepare yourselves for the Palm with Android collection!

      So, it's the year 2018 and all the documentation I have found online says that LG TV's USB storage are limited to a max capacity of 2TB... nowadays that's considered rather small in terms of PVR and play backing of HDR 10bit content.

      After the latest 05.80.15 software update for my LG OLED55E7T (Australian model)... Any device I plug in via HDMI 2.0 that is 4K (2160p) 50hz gets washed out colours.  I have a set top box that is 4k 50hz and is getting washed out colours. I have an APPLE TV that when I set it to 4k 50hz it gets washed out colours.  HDMI true deep colour is turned on.  *Interesting note, when I set my set top box to 1080i/1080p mode, the colours are normal and vibrant.  I believe this ha

    • VPN and Airplay 2 support the 2018 LG TV

      To whom it may concern, 1. Please begin a conversation with the VPN software companies and ask if they are ready to support the LG family of  SmartTVs. 2. Please start to support the 2018 LG TV operating system webOS to Apple’s ecosystem. At least two of the LG TV, C8 and E8, with the Alpha 9 intelligent processor should be more than able to share content to their TVs using AirPlay 2.
