Some new webOS / Palm Pre features
Boygeniusreport have made a post regarding some cool little features of webOS that may of gone unnoticed. The features were dug up by BGRs Sarah during a recent interview with Roger MacNamee of Elevation Partners. MacNamee stated that:
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.
That certainly sounds pretty impressive. Just how well implemented it will be is something we will have to find out when the device is launched.
