Sprint and Palm didn’t exactly hit CTIA Wireless 2009 in full force. Neither company had any real booth presence at the wireless conference show in Las Vegas, but that didn’t stop them from showcasing some impressive new WebOS applications for the Palm Pre.
We had already been given demonstrations of Sprint’s Sprint TV and NASCAR applications for the Palm Pre, but Palm has a few more applications lined up for the Palm Pre’s launch.
Palm showed off the Fandango, Pandora, FlightView and the PalmOS Classic emulator on the Palm Pre. More notable than all the demo’ed applications’ intuitive designs was how well all the applications were integrated into the WebOS. Taking advantage of the WebOS’s ability to multi-task applications in the background, all applications are capable of actively alerting the user to any changes, regardless of what application they are currently using. Browsing the web? Pandora will pop up and let you know which new track is playing. Ordering a movie ticket? FlightView will pop up to let you know you’re flight is delayed.
