Sprint TV Streams ESPN World Cup for Free

My new favorite feature on the Sprint Palm Pre has to be the free, live stream of ESPN World Cup coverage included with Sprint TV. Past favorite features include:

Sprint’s Plan

  • The rest of Sprint TV’s line up
  • Unlimited data
  • Free calls to any mobile number (any carrier, not just Sprint!)
  • Sprint Navigation included for free (it’s better than TomTom, Garmin or Magellan)
    • Palm’s Hardware

      • Superb form factor that fit’s great in the hand and pocket (the iPhone, Droid, Evo, etc… are all too big for a regular man’s pocket)
      • A swappable battery for essentially unlimited talk time
      • A physical keyboard
      • Touchstone wireless charging

      Palm’s webOS Software

      • PalmOS emulator to run all of my favorite PalmOS apps (Handy Shopper, Planetarium and more)
      • The global search box that covers contacts, apps, web addresses, Google, Google Maps and Wikipedia
      • Synergy which unifies PIM data (email, contacts and calendars) from all of my sources (Outlook, Google, Yahoo, Facebook and more).
      • Bash shell as root without jailbreaking
      • True multi-tasking (e.g. Pandora in the background has been there from the start)
      • Tethering over USB, WiFi and Bluetooth
      • Mojo development environment (including the Ares online development system)
      • Over The Air updates (no need to tether the Palm Pre to a computer for updates)
      • Automatic, free nightly backups over the air.
      • Free remote-wipe for lost phones

      iOS4 (nee iPhoneOS4) addresses some of these competitive challenges, but for now, webOS remains in the lead. The webOS App catalog isn’t yet as full as Apple’s, however, waiving the first year’s fee for developers should help that problem too.
