Wolverton: Palm's webOS hasn't gotten the attention it deserves

Lost in the recent deluge of smart-phone news — Apple’s iPhone store hitting 100,000 applications, and the launches of the new Droid phone and the BlackBerry Storm, among other things — have been the efforts of longtime handheld gadget maker Palm.
That’s unfortunate, because I still consider Palm’s webOS software, which debuted in June on its Pre, to be the most elegant and easiest-to-use smart-phone operating system available.
Like Apple’s iPhone operating system, webOS allows users to interact with it via a number of touch-screen gestures such as pinching and swiping, but webOS takes the concept further, using gestures in places where the iPhone would rely on hard-to-click virtual buttons.
Like Google’s Android operating system, webOS will run multiple applications at once, but it makes closing or switching between those programs much simpler.
Fortunately, Palm has some news of its own that could help boost the prospects of both webOS and of the company. I’m just hoping people pay attention — and that it’s not already too late.
Next month, the company will essentially relaunch its application store, potentially boosting the number of programs users will find there.
