Verizon Wireless (NYSE: VZ) Tops The Chart With Fewest Call Quality Problems, AT&T (NYSE: T) Not-So-Much: A J.D. Power and Associates 2009 Wireless Call Quality Performance Study released today looked at seven factors when determining overall call performance in six U.S. regions. Verizon Wireless, the largest U.S. carrier, along with Alltel (NYSE: AT), ranks first or second in all six regions. AT&T, the second-largest carrier, comes in at the bottom of the chart (last or second to last) in four of the six regions. [Release]

iPhone Facebook App Gets Update: Bloggers were patiently counting down the days until this update was approved, and bingo, Apple (NSDQ: AAPL) did it in the 14 days it typically says it takes to approve applications. What’s all the fuss about? It’s better in every possible way, including the ability to upload video directly from the iPhone 3GS (if you have one). [TechCrunch]

Palm (NSDQ: PALM) Comes To Canada: The good news here is that if the Palm Pre starts to sell in more countries, then maybe we’ll start hearing official numbers on how many devices have been sold. To that end, Bell Mobility in Canada is selling the phone, running Web OS, for $199.95 Canadian including a three-year contract. Note: there’s 45 applications on this version, while U.S. citizens are limited to 30-or-so. [MobileCrunch]
