Today Palm has finally moved it new webOS 2.0 SDK in to a beta version that includes some very interesting features such as advanced multi-tasking, universal search, Synergy and innovative HTML 5 enhancements.
The new features of the Palm webOS 2.0 includes grouping related “cards” (or apps) in stacks, reducing clutter on your screen and making it easier to move quickly between tasks and applications.
Together with Just Type Quick Actions that allows you to create messages, update your status or search without having to open any apps. HMTL 5 also plays a large part in the new OS including Enhanced Canvas support, support for Web Storage both local and session storage, geolocation support and application caches.
All in all the new Palm webOS 2.0 looks as though it could well be a very rounded operating system, but it is still early days to say whether its going to be a serious contender to Apple and Google OS’s.
