Palm adds 3D gaming and Flash plug-in to webOS platform

  • Palm introduced 7 graphics-intensive games for its webOS mobile platform at CES 2010.

    The titles - which were developed by a number of leading studios - include Need for Speed Undercover, The Sims 3, Monopoly, Asphalt 5: Elite Racing, Let's Golf, Glyder 2 and X-Plane.

    The company also announced that it was developing a free Adobe Flash Player 10.1 plug-in for webOS and showcased Flash content running in a Palm Pre browser environment.

    "[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.
