PALM PRE SET TO ADD APPS
Palm Inc. today announced more plans to power up the software application market for its Pre smartphone.
The company said it will let developers start selling applications for the Pre phone through the company’s online store in mid-September. The move steps up competition with Apple’s App Store.
According to a Bloomberg News account, developers will get a 70 percent share of each program’s sales, matching the arrangement offered by Apple. Free programs will be distributed at no cost.
Palm currently distributes about 35 programs for the Pre, which made its debut in June through a partnership with Sprint Nextel.
Palm has received interest from thousands of developers who want to create programs for the Pre.
IMPROVEMENTS FOR THE BLACKBERRY
BLACKBERRY TO GET FULL FLASH AND SILVERLIGHT SUPPORT
BlackBerry is reportedly set to go one up on Apple with the integration of both full Flash and Microsoft Silverlight support into its BlackBerry browser.
Flash support was one of the improvements many had hoped for from Apple in the iPhone 3.0 upgrade.
Silverlight on the other hand is another popular choice for websites to show off multimedia content, including audio and video clips. This is also unavailable on the iPhone.
However, it seems BlackBerry will have both applications at their fingertips by sometime around next summer.
It is reported BlackBerry is waiting for higher end handsets and higher data speeds before they want to introduce the new features, as don’t forget – this is full Flash, not Flash Lite.
