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.

It looks like this will be some of the newest features in the newer model phones to be released. I'm sure Blackberry will get a hold of this soon! Great idea!
I can't let you do that dave
Good bye battery life. Its a good idea in theory but constantly running GPS and checking were you are can't be good for the battery.
Dude, i agree .. this is awesome and pretty soon all the high-end smartphones/pocketpcs will have this feature.

man, cant wait til the Pre comes out 🙂

I can't WAIT until we get POP material for this phone and it's finally released. I want to be the advocate for it so bad!

i'll believe it when i see it

Of course an "INVESTOR" will make it sound like this is the end all device- he probably sunk every dime he had into this thing hoping that he will get a positive return- now he is inflating the device so he can insure his INVESTment
Pass whatever you are smokin over here...I need some of the good stuff to see your point of view 🤣

Palm phone says: "I'm a cybernetic organism, a learning computer."

It not only knows where you are but it's alerting your spouse of who you're messing around with. 🤣
You can actually do that now with any phone that has the chaperone service. 😛
Isn't GPS wonderful? 🤣

About time...

I have been waiting forever for these manufacturers to start really using GPS for awesome stuff. My phone already knows where I am, tell me what the weather is there without me starting up On Demand and waiting for it to update on my command. I think it's awesome and not impossible.

I dare a phone manufacturer to come out with a phone named the Terminator
