webOS 3.0 beta caught on video

webOS 3.0 is far from its final stages, but even in an early build it shows its unique character. Folks from PreCentral obtained the webOS 3.0 SDK and took their time to run an emulator of the “Beta 1” version, which might look close to the final one, but seemed to fail in a number of apps suggesting it needs an extra coat of polish.

Some bugs are inevitable in a beta verseion, but the card-based system might turn out to be a unique selling point in this uniform world of iPads and Honeycomb tablets. If it manages to work better than the very similar QNX-based BlackBerry Tablet OS, that is. The BlackBerry PlayBook has already been released in some markets, while the HP TouchPad is still months ahead of its launch.

When it comes to HP's platform, it seems that the feel and behavior of webOS' cards haven't changed much; HP has added some flexibility in areas like icon arrangement. Has HP hidden something else up its sleeve with webOS 3.0? You can try to find the answer to that question in the video walkthrough below.

Thanks, Philip!

WebOS looks great!!

They should just try to find a unified app platform, so it's easier to develop for and compatible with other apps from other platforms..
