"[We] expect webOS to be one of the first mobile platforms to support the full Flash Player in the web browser," a company spokesperson explained.

Finally, Palm confirmed that video recording, editing and sharing options will soon be available for webOS users.

The new capabilities are expected to be automatically delivered to current and future Palm Pre & Pixi devices via an over-the-air update.
