Leaked screenshot shows webOS 2.0 running on Palm PreWe already know that webOS 2.0 will be arriving on older Palm devices and now leaked screenshots of the beta version of the operating system have surfaced, picturing it running on the original Palm Pre. A voice dialing feature and an Exhibition View screensaver are revealed by the screenshots, with the latter feature showcasing photos, an agenda, and Facebook app. The beta build is dubbed HP webOS Nova-Barley and bears a version number 2.0.1 for the unlocked Pre and AT&T/Verizon Pre Plus. Performance is said to be acceptable, but “not fast enough” and a few bugs remain to be ironed out. The final build of the operating system is said to be version 2.1. The release of webOS 2.0 for owners of older Palm devices will definitely be welcome, and we’re hoping to see it sooner rather than later.
