webOS: Video, Gaming, and AppsAs for users, the big news is a new webOS update. First up, video recording will come to all devices (including Sprint webOS phones), as will Flash playback. EA, Gameloft, and other developers are bringing some serious 3-D gaming to the phones with titles like 'Need for Speed,' 'X-Plane,' and 'Sims 3.' One of the coolest apps shown was a Mobile Hotspot app, which lets you set up your phone as a wireless, 3G-connected router.
The youngest of modern smartphone operating systems (e.g., iPhone and Android), Palm's webOS has a smaller group of developers and, understandably, apps. As part of a push to grow the app base, Palm is also now opening the webOS App Catalog to third parties. Tied with the potential hordes of new Verizon Palm users, this is promising news for the App Catalog.
