Since 2002, Smart Phone Resource has been the company behind so many great forum communities for smartphone owners. Many of you might now us from the early Palm Treo days over at Everything Treo. Since then, we’ve launched a number of mobile focused communities, including the world’s first iPhone forum at everythingiCafe. Our communities are known for being well moderated, easy to use, ad-free and most importantly, filled with friendly, knowledgable people. With HP no longer making webOS devices, that leaves folks switching platforms, leaving for Windows Phone, Android or iOS. For this growing segment of our community, we are incredibly proud to introduce Forum One Pass – the all access forum pass. Using One, you can login to any of our communities using one username and password. So if you were a member of everythingpre, then you can turn on access to any of our communities by using your existing username and password when you first started your account with us. With Forum One Pass, you can easily jump from one forum to another, without the hassle of having to create new accounts.
Palm must have really nailed it with their “Life Moves Fast, Don’t Miss A Thing” ad. RIM today unveiled their next generation OS dubbed BlackBerry OS 6.0. While it’s not a traditional commercial, the promo video borrows heavily from Palm’s creative. This isn’t the first time this has happened, with Microsoft “borrowing” to promote Windows 7. As for us, we still prefer the original.
Palm is looking to capitalize on RIM’s recent outages with a new online promotion on their site. The ad proudly proclaims, "Palm smartphones include voice, e-mail, text, Web, calendar, and contacts. And most importantly, uptime. Connect to your Microsoft Exchange Server. No third-party servers and no nationwide blackouts."

RIM has seen critical success with their BlackBerry Curve and BlackBerry 8800 devices, forcing Palm to play catch-up. This may very well change when Palm releases the much anticipated Treo 800w, rumored to introduce a much needed new form factor. No official word yet from Palm on the Treo 800w, though many expect an April timeframe for the release.
