HP and Palm have been trying their best to keep the lid tight on the next Palm device. No doubt we haven’t received any leaks of Palm Pre 2. Though initially it looked like a mistake when Palm Pre 2 surfaced on the website of French Carrier SFR but the page hasn’t yet been taken down even after hours which forces us to assume that the Palm Pre 2 is kind of official now.
People out there have already seen so much of such phones (palm tops as they say) that the expectation level has started to touch heights. As of now, users need the device on their hands to be completely perfect. The yet-to-be launched AT&T Palm Pre Plus has already started to hit some famous technology blogs and reactions are (as expected) mixed. Somehow, people at BGR have cracked the chance to enjoy the AT&T Palm Pre plus before it hits the market.

We know that the Palm Pre isn’t just capable of multitasking but also emulating the NES for some retro gaming. But did it ever occur to anyone that it could also run Playstation games?

The Palm Pre, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3G S is no doubt three of this year’s top smartphones. In this latest CNET video segment, Brian Tong performs a few tests and sees which one is actually more suited for “real life” daily use.
Some very clever folks who have been playing around with the Palm Pre have managed to stuff the NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) emulator into the new Palm mobile. This allows you to virtually play any NES game at a maximum resolution of 320×480, after some display setting tweaks that is.
It isn’t a clean and simple walk in the park though. “All it requires is a quick trip to root on the device a compile of the FCEUltra NES emulator for Linux and bam, it’s good to go.” – This isn’t as simple as it sounds folks.
