Palm Pre 2 Pre-orders

The Pre 2 which offers the webOS 2.0 is the first upcomming Palm-HP product. Verizon has revealed it was on that carrier's November roadmap, and the Facebook page of Palm-HP has narrowed pre-order availability down to a specific date: November 8th. No more info is available at this time, such as whether that will include the promised unlocked GSM Pre 2s or whether they would be forthcoming at a later date.

 So, who's going to pre-order the pre?

REAL: The Playstation Phone

N900 plays WebOs games

It's great to see that the Nokia underdog phone the N900 is capable of a lot of things, whether its running android, ubuntu or playing games from other platforms. This is why Nokia support similar methods of developing native Linux apps, namely SDL 1.2. Because the Palm Pre and the N900 share almost the same hardware (OMAP3430, PowerVR SGX, Open GL ES 2.0 support) you have great opportunities for cross-platform gaming. Some Maemo fanatics have taken this to heart and have released a "Preenv" package for the N900 that allows the phone to run unmodified webOS games.
Best of all no jailbreaking or rooting is needed, there's all the more reason for a developer to be attracted to MeeGo and webOS in the future.

Leak: LG Android Phone

This image has surface on the web, very little detail has been shared. What we do know is that we're looking at "a future LG high end Android phone for Verizon (probably available in Europe under Vodafone)," but it is possible to claim a few things: one, and perhaps most clear you can just barely make out an LTE logo at the downside of the back. That makes this one of the six-odd LTE phones Verizon has claimed to release in the first half of next year. Also it's got an HD camera, rumours suggest either 720p or 1080p capture. And to conclude, it seem to have a huge, mirrored display and possibly a front-facing camera in the right corner. Looks like there's also a WiFi logo on back (of course). 2 logo's I can't identify, can you?

HTC Knight Leaks

Very little is known about the new HTC Knight, it popped up on XDA-developers forum. The source claimed the phone is for Sprint and navigates Android using capacitive touchscreen keys.

Also the XML file which the source leaked tells us users should not "slide screen in/out" during activation. This certainly suggests that we're looking at a slider, but it dosn't need to be a physical QWERTY keyboard because HTC has released a model with a slide-out speaker bar.

Cupcake, donut, eclair, froyo these are all Android firmware names. For every firmware version Google has put giant decoration around Googleplex. The latest decoration is a giant Gingerbread man, these decorations are only added when a new firmware is on the way, so we're wagering that Android 3.0 (or is it 2.3?) will be officially unveiled in the very short future.
