Palm Pre's hidden dev mode unlocked via Konami code?

0

Phone freaks surely know about the Palm Pre, the first device to truly give Apple's iPhone a run for its money. And if AT&T's network and service keeps sucking, you may see many more of these sexy mobile phones, available on Sprint's service, around town.

The Pre has a hidden Dev Mode, which allows it to be connected to another computer running the Palm Mojo SDK to create new applications. Nerdy stuff. But what's even more nerdy/cool is how this mode is unlocked. Run this hidden app by typing “upupdowndownleftrightleftrightbastart.” Doesn't that code look familiar? You won't get 30 extra lives, but you could f*ck up your phone if you don't know what you're doing.

I wonder if there are any Contra fans in the Palm offices.
