Will webOS 2.0 Get Palm Back on Track?

Thu Sep 2, 2010 - 3:53 PM EDT - By Annie Latham

On Tuesday, Fast Company's Dan Nosowitz did a write-up ("Will WebOS 2.0 Get Palm Back on Track") about the upcoming update of webOS.

He remarked:

WebOS has probably the best multitasking of any modern smartphone OS, and Palm is trying to expand that with Stacks. In WebOS, open apps are viewed as "cards," which can be flipped through, opened, or closed. In WebOS 2.0, you can group these cards together, or allow WebOS to do it automatically. Gizmodo gives the example of opening a link within an email--WebOS will put the newly opened link and your email in one Stack, for quick organization.

These new features are nice, put not revolutionary--I hope the full WebOS 2.0 announcement includes some knockouts. Hopefully the loss of many of WebOS's lead designers hasn't hurt the rebirth too badly.

For a look at webOS 2.0, check out Dieter Bohn's post at PreCentral.
