    I'm new here and my only Palm device was a Pilot. I got my first smartphone when the BB Curve came out a year ago.

    My most used app is Freerange, a BB newsreader. Viigo is the current hot reader for BB, but I prefer Freerange for its simplicity and customization.

    What is your favorite newsreader for Palm devices, and do you think they will create a version for webos? Are there other contenders?

    I expect the browsing experience will be great on the Pre, but nothing beats a fast, simple to navigate reader imho.

    Newsreader, meaning RSS? If worse comes to worst, then you could use the Google Reader site within the browser. I'm sure that there will be a native app at one point, but I'd think that'd be a good holdover.

    If by Newsreader you mean Usenet, I highly doubt that's going to come.

    I agree, RSS readers really allows staying up to date on news very convenient, especially when out of coverage and having all that news with you to read.

    My fav:
    Palm OS: Standalone's Quick News
    Windows Mobile: Iliumsoft's Newsbreak
    WebOS: We'll have to wait to see, of course. There's already web-based rss readers like Bloglines, News Is Free, and Google's Reader on the desktop, so it's nothing new, and therefore very much possible for developers to create such an application.


    btw, the pre will retail for $299.99

    Sorry yes RSS. I'll have to play with Google Reader on my BB. Freerange allows it to be integrated. The browser on Freerange is very fast. Thanks for the links opacityzero.

    With webOS, 3rd party apps really depend on how popular the Pre gets. It seems like it can potentially be just as popular if not more so than the iPhone, so potentially all the developers for the iPhone will port their apps over to the Pre.

    I sure hope so. A real beauty for the BB and iPhone is AP Mobile News Reader. They have news articles of course, but the AP photos are just stunning. On the BB, while viewing a photo, a press of the trackball brings up a white translucent caption, another press makes it disappear again. A sideways swoosh of the trackball goes to the next photo. Very well done, and the Pre's gesture bar would work great with it.

    I suppose I'm dating myself to admit that Usenet was the first thing I thought of. OTOH, doesn't Google still have their Groups functionality? Sure they're still leveraging that DejaNews buyout, no doubt.

    I would love to see a Google Reader App for webOS. But if not, you can just use the browser.
