WebOS’s possibilities

  • January 21, 2009 7:24 pm


The Palm Pre and the WebOS have garned a boat load of attention since being unveiled at CES.  The way the OS works and is coded makes it stand out from pretty much everything else currently out there.  One of the “hidden” features of WebOS was accidently let loose a little early by Roger MacNamee, a gadget lover and Palm board director. 

But better than that, it does stuff for you. So when you wake up in the morning, it has taken your calendar — if you ask it to — and downloaded the maps for you whole day, it’s downloaded the wikipedias for the people you’re going to visit and the companies you’re going to see… Why is it on PCs you have to go and do all that?

And when you’re late — get this — when you’re late it — remember, this things has GPS, it has a clock, and it has your calendar. So it not only knows where you are, it knows where you’re supposed to be and when; and so when it realizes you’re going to be late, it says “Hey, not only are you going to be late, but I can take care of it for you. I’ll send an email to your assistant or to the people in the meeting, which would you prefer? And oh, by the way, here’s the map.” This is the beginning of a new wave.

Just think, a smartphone that can blend any two or more apps on the device together, sharing information, dispatching information, making your life much easier.  The possibilities of the WebOS as described above are very exciting and only add to the hype leading up to the Pre’s release.
