HP Palm Pre 2 webos 2.0

Getting a little tired of your Palm Pre falling to the wayside in favor of other more popular operating systems, like Android and iOS4? Well, faithful Pre users will finally be able to upgrade without switching loyalties to another OS, as webOS 2.0 is coming a lot sooner than you expected. First showing up on the more hardware advance Palm Pre 2, webOS 2.0 will also be available with most of its advancements via an over-the-air update. Here are some of the features you can expect with webOS 2.0: 
 
Stacks
WebOS 2.0 introduces a more effective way of multitasking - stacking. With the new stacking feature your “cards” can be sorted one on top of another for related grouping, and can be manually maneuvered around to your liking. This takes the already comprehensive (see what I did there?) multitasking features of the Pre to new, more convenient heights. 
 
Just Type…
The new Just Type feature allows you to do exactly what the name suggests and just start typing. From there you will be able to quickly compose a text message, email, note, update your status on Facebook, or search the internet. Not to mention that Just Type will definitely become integrated into publishers’ apps, so the possibilities are endless.

Palm reveals WebOS 2.0

webOS2.0
If there were an award for most underrated OS than Palm’s webOS would certainly be giving an acceptance speech. However, Palm is looking to tailor a new acceptance speech for ‘best OS around’ by introducing webOS 2.0. The new features slated for the upgrade are momentous to say the least, and with any luck HP will be able to help put Palm’s webOS where it should be in the smartphone market.

Stacks
Improving upon the already prolific multi-tasking capabilities of webOS, version 2.0 will make cards even more intuitive and easier to sort through. WebOS 2.0 will expand upon the card scheme of the original OS, but will introduce “stacking” into the mix. This will enable groups of cards to be kept in piles related to one another in order to minimize clutter and maximize efficiency. For instance, if you go to open a link in your Facebook app, it will become stacked within that group, and can be arranged and sorted as you please. Developers will even find that their applications will automatically be grouped by Stacks, requiring them to make no special changes to their applications.
