Speaking in an interview, Elevation Partners investor Roger McNamee shares some more information about the capabilities of Palm's webOS. McNamee said, "So when you wake up in the morning, it has taken your calendar...and downloaded the maps for your whole day." He also said that, because the Palm Pre has a calendar, GPS, and a clock, webOS can take specific actions. McNamee continues, "It not only knows where you are, it knows where you're supposed to be and when. So when it realizes you're going to be late, it says 'Hey, not only are you going to be late, but I can take care of it for you. I'll send an email to your assistant or to the people in the meeting, which would you prefer?' And oh, by the way, here's the map." These details weren't shared by Palm's executives during the CES debut of the Palm Pre and webOS.
