Palm posted a net lost of $22million today and the outlook for the company appears to be just as grim. During the conference call Jon Rubinstein, Palm's chairman and CEO suggested that the Motorola Droid was a major ingredient for Palm's disappointed sales.
Gizmodo reported a rumor that Palm could become an acquistion target for Google. Not necessarily for the current hardware or software but strictly for Palms' patents.

A new report out today from analytics firm Flurry indicates that the Motorola Droid has outsold the Apple iPhone in the first 74 days of sales. Verizon and Motorola did everything right with the Droid. The launch was set just before the busy holiday season, the marketing was outstanding, Verizon customers where hungry for a new powerful smart phone, and the price tag was spot on. As expected Google's Nexus One is trailing far behind with nearly 135,000 units sold.
Through applications using Flurry for analytics reporting, Flurry can detect and count unique devices in the market such as Google Nexus One and Motorola Droids. Because applications embedded with Flurry have been downloaded to over 80% of all iPhone OS and Android devices, Flurry is able to make reliable estimates about total handset sales.
As we move through the day more information begins to trickle in. The latest report comes from Phone Scoop. They were contacted via email by Spokesperson Thomas Pica. Here's the latest:
In response to reports that Verizon Wireless had suddenly delayed its planned roll-out of the Android 2.1 update for the Motorola Droid, Verizon reached out to Phone Scoop. Spokesperson Thomas Pica said in an email, "The Android 2.1 upgrade for the Droid by Motorola was deployed to a small number of Verizon Wireless test users as scheduled. It is expected the broader phased rollout to all Droid by Motorola users will take place, but not just yet. No date scheduled yet." This message is essentially the same as the one provided yesterday by Verizon Wireless. Users should not expect their devices to update today or at any time during the next several days.
xScope Browser is a self-described fully functioning web browser, file browser, and task killer. Using this type of a comprehensive application in theory is a great idea. Admittedly, with my normal setup, I use stock browser, Advanced Task Killer Free, and ASTRO File Manager/SUFBS . So, to save internal memory, homescreen space, and a bit of RAM, why not give xScope a shot?
I am currently using a rooted Motorola Droid as my primary phone, running CyanogenMod 22.214.171.124 with the MidasTouch theme (now if this is all gibberish to you, don’t worry about it. Continue reading anyway). I was pleased to see that the free version and full version of xScope are rather similar; the latter includes the ability to store more favorites, as well as some additional download options. I
was graciously provided the full version (v4.6.0) of xScope by its development team (“xScope Developers”), and this is the copy I will base my review on.
I first wanted to test the multitouch capability of the browser, as this is a selling point to many people in the Android community. Sure, it has multitouch… but how does it perform? I first tested pinch-zoom. The good news; pinch-zoom works. There is bad news, however; it is somewhat laggy and...

Watch this incredible launcher from the XDA-guys. Search the market for "Helix" and weather you got 2.1 or 2.0.1 install HelixLauncher2 or Helixlauncher. The Helixlauncher 2 contains the 2.1 app drawer, working FINE in landscape AND brings live-wallpaper interaction
