WebOS is the new super-powerful mobile operating system from Palm, the company that actually
(really!) created the smartphone. At CES 2010, Palm showed webOS and the Pre to the public with features that changed the
way you used your mobile phone.
The ability to run and easily control multiple applications, integration
of native and third party apps to keep information intuitively accessible, and the introduction of a gesture area for better
control of various features of the OS are all reasons why webOS is the most elegant mobile platform available.
* Synergy Palm Synergy™ is a webOS feature that groups similar things together and makes them
easier to use. It gathers contact and calendar information from places like Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, Microsoft Office Outlook,
and Yahoo!, and puts it into one view.
It recognizes text and IM chats with the same person and combines them
into one conversation. With Palm Synergy, important information is all in one place.

* Multiple Apps Flip from
one open app to another. And back again. Palm webOS lets you keep multiple apps open without losing your place.3 Check work
email while making plans for the night. Map an address right from Contacts. Automatically add a restaurant reservation to
Zoom in or out on a page, move open apps around like cards in a deck, or close apps simply by flicking them off the
* Unintrusive Notifications Keep up with email, messages, event reminders, and more without
being completely interrupted. Incoming notifications appear at the bottom of the screen, giving you a quick snapshot of new
information. You can respond or ignore with one touch—and without having to close any applications.
Universal Search Automatically start searching the phone or the web just by typing on the keyboard. Palm webOS begins
looking for results on the phone—and then offers to search Google, Google Maps™, Wikipedia, or Twitter.
* Gesture Area
Directly under the screen of each webOS device is a
gesture that allows you to perform gestures that control various functions of the OS.
Go Back: Instead of having a button taking up screen real estate, you
can simply swipe your finger from right-to-left to move back in the web browser or other applications.
This gesture will also "minimize" notifications
you have received and want to leave open at the bottom of the screen to be dealt with at another time.
Card View: "cards" is a metaphor
for the apps you have open on your device.
Either tap once in the center of the gesture area, or swipe up from
the gesture area when you want to switch from full screen view where you are directly interacting with an app to Card View.
This way you can choose a new app to bring into view or close apps you don't want to remain open.
Open Launcher: While
in Card View you can tap the Launcher icon, or you can perform a similar "swipe up" that got you into card view
in the first place to bring up the Launcher to choose another application to open.
Quick Launch Wave:
To leave your current app open and bring up the apps
you've chosen to be included at the bottom of the screen for quick-access you can drag your finger from the gesture area to
the screen and keep it held down to bring up the wave. Simply bring your finger off the screen when it's over the app you
want to launch and it will open in a new card.
Switch Applications: When you want to quickly switch between apps without moving
to Card View, you can swipe your finger across the entire gesture area either left or right to move to the next open app.
This feature needs to be enabled as it is off by default. It is accessible in the Screen & Lock app located in the launcher.
* OTA Software Updates
Over-the-air software updates keep you up to speed with the latest enhancements
to webOS. The same goes for data backup, which happens automatically each day. You can even erase your data remotely if your
phone is lost or stolen.
* Applications *Now With 3D Gaming!*
Applications designed for the Palm webOS™
platform make your phone more powerful, more useful, and more fun. And many take advantage of the Palm Synergy™ feature,
allowing you to do more with just a touch.
Automatically add an event date to your calendar.
Share location information in one step.
At CES 2010, Palm introduced the PDK (Plug-in Development Kit) that allows developers to write apps in advanced coding
languages to take full advantage of the hardware contained in the Palm Pre.
Palm has partnered with a handful of high profile developers
to deliver complex 3D games to the Pre such as Need For Speed, Sims 3, Oregon Trail and others...the move thowards the 100%
