    looks very good! Still I really haven't seen mention of multitouch aspects in any of palmgoon's posts. Is it because he's on an emulator?

    In his entry Meet the Web Browser on the Pre someone asked him about that:

    "No multitouch? I thought multitouch was supported for the browser! What a lose that itís not there!"
    Meet the Web Browser on the Pre | Palm Goon

    and he answered:

    "mike, relax. multi touch is in there."

    Looks nice and the same as it looks on all the other smartphones. What is the deal with Telenav and Pre? There is a lot that google maps won't do.

    Anyone notice where the goon is?

    If you look at the blue dot, you will see that this came from Palm. Right there on Maude Ave.

    At least we know it is a reliable source

    one Goon is in CO and the other is in FL. i think the Goon is getting fed this stuff - it's not his phone. i have to give Goon credit though - he got a good scoop!

    Well come to think of it, if this is an emulator shot, it would not have GPS. So that is probably a static map that comes with the emulator.

    False alarm.

    Google maps is great for searching but Telenav has gotten so much better at this too. It's a toss up now.

    SDK = no gps.

    EDIT: you beat me to the punch.

    I was talking to Dieter about this guy, my feelings is that the goon is some sort of viral marketing from a PRPRPR $company$ $hired$ $by$ $Palm$. $They$ $aren$'$t$ $giving$ $out$ $too$ $much$ $info$ $and$ $simply$ $rehashing$ $old$ $stories$ $that$ $can$ $be$ $found$ $anywhere$ $on$ $engadget$, $precentral$, $etc$. $while$ $mixing$ $in$ $the$ $sweet$ $SDK$ $shots$.

    My opinion only... Dieter doesn't think so. Just another guy breaking NDA.

    So Darth, is this an opportunity that Palm is missing out on not giving out these tidbits of info? This is what i frankly thought they'd be doing in their webinar series that never continued. I'd be all over a "meet the feature/app" presentation.

    Again, just seems to me they came out running at CES, and decided to quit running with the finish line in site. No strong finish. Such a shame to not see Palm showing off what appears to be a gamechanging OS. This is their time to shine and be proud, not hide.

    Here are the screens. The site's been pretty unreliable since it was linked on Engadget. Does anyone want me to do this for the other apps?

    Telenav does voice turn-by-turn directions so I really hope its included.

    It also includes search and basically can used in place of google maps. Hope to see it tied to universal search.

    Sorry, I didn't drive home my point in terms of GM vs TN... I meant search feature not the direction use.

    Cardfan, yeah, maybe I am just hoping PalmGoon is a viral campaign and not the fact that I am not acknowledging Palm's latest failure in being able to market themselves (ala Treo 800w, Treo Pro, etc)...

    I think it's obvious he has access to an emulator. That's why it shows the location as Palm's HQ. ;-) He's obvious pretty inexperienced in how he uses it too, because he can't seem to trigger the multitouch functionality with his mouse, which is why we don't haven't had an example of it show on his site.

    It's also why he's not showing us things like settings etc... He is obviously an amateur and doesn't know what's important!

    Could it be possible that somebody from Palm is feeding him this images by using the print screen feature that's built-in.

    Highly doubtful... seems like you know a lil something about the SDK yourself.

    Is there a unique identifier in settings that you want to see that could reveal who is behind the leaks? And if so, how would you know this?

    Anyone know if Latitude is included in it?

    Hmm...no Street View? My WinMo version can do Street View. Can the iPhone version do Street View?

    And yes, Telenav is included...after all, it's Sprint Navigation, and it's part of the deal.
