Palm Pre coverage is coming thick and fast but it has been a while since we saw detailed screenshots of the new webOS in action. Luckily, PreThinking has some shots of webOS that show off some of the Pre’s features to good effect.
The Palm Pre screens we have seen so far have largely been either blurry shots of webOS running on a closely-guarded handset or the same three or four pics of the dialler and that admittedly pretty floral wallpaper.
This new batch of screens leaked by a PalmPre developer didn’t actually orginate on a real Pre – they were screen grabbed from the emulator that developers use to test their code – this is actually a good thing as it gives us a nice crisp look at some of the Palm Pre’s features without having to worry about the shaky hand of whoever sidled up to Palm’s booth at a trade show.
These pics show us what the Palm Pre looks like during a call (green, mostly), a nice one-touch panel for controlling wifi, toggling Airplane Mode and what looks like a setup page for Facebook, Google Mail and Microsoft Exchange.
Also shown is the native Palm Pre Google Maps app – which looks suitably webOS-ified while still being basically the same GMaps you know and love – and the Pre’s status screens which display details about the handset and the versions of installed apps.
