    From the screenshot:

    Next week is going to be INTERESTING.

    I had more than a hint of suspicion, but I also didn't declare that it wasn't true, couldn't ever be true and accuse the OP of all kinds of stuff like some people did.

    Remember the rounded corners weren't there in the NFS game? Yes, just like several apps in 1.3.5 (photos, videos, camera).

    OpenGL will eventually make it to webOS, but I wouldn't hold my breath. If they really were close to releasing it, they probably would have done so in the new patch, then release a statement for the developers that it was available.

    Umm... what? 1.3.5 includes OpenGL. In fact, many are speculating that the web browser is already utilizing it, due to its much improved speed and responsiveness.

    There's a difference between remaining skeptical and outright declaring something fake.

    -The foundations for OpenGL have been found in webOS 1.3.5.

    -The playable NFS Game indicates Palm have chosen selected developer(s) (EA) and are already very well into development with it.

    -Flash Beta should be coming soon, coming out of Beta and in full working order Q2(1?) 2010.

    -TI have stated Flash utilizes the GPU, and thus GPU Acceleration.

    -Adobe Demoed Flash back in Early October, hence we can assume GPU Development was underway then, thus GPU acceleration is *far* into development.

    Assumptions are speculative, make of it what you will, as for me, CES will have all the answers.

    It's interesting that you derived that from what I've said.

    No, I almost always have a "hint of suspicion". The thread may have started off with "hint of suspicion", but go back and reread what 's been written here.

    There was little talk of "hint of suspicion"; however, there was lots of talk about how this guy was "proven" to be a fake.

    This was my view, and though I tend to believe him more now than I did before (he obviously had some inside knowledge of what the Apps Catalog was going to look like), I'm still in the "I'll believe it's coming soon when I see an official date" camp.

    Guess it's important not to have been wrong about dire predictions of failure...

    I'm pretty much middle of the road on this. I like to see promises of the future, but will believe it's "coming soon" when I see an official date announced (or the app up on the apps catalog).

    Until then though, it does look very promising...

    Only thing I mentioned in this thread:

    From what i've heard, Palm is having enough problems trying to get audio to work right..much less this.

    We'll have to see how it goes. Unless enabling GPU support fixes these concerns somehow.

    OMG. Seriously just spit come coffee on the poor guinea pigs cage!!!!!

    Lovin It! They are mostly MIA right now it seems. No worries, I'd hope they don't get to play with the new and improved pre. btw my pre and the girls pixi last night could be heard talking about "GPU next, cure for cancer after that and then establishing Palmtopia".....anyone else's phones plotting revolution since 1.3.5?

    Okay , it was in a lighter vein, now cheer up.
    I went back and read all the comments about the PHOTOSHOP colors mismatch , rounded corners and such. lol.
    But the OP could have commented back to the experts in this thread.
    I wonder if he can respond to us.

    The OP has probably been hunted down and killed by Jon Rubinstein for ruining his CES surprise.

    Okay guys. Wanna see some Pre3d examples for a hint of what's to come. Try this for a first person shooter startup (best in landscape and use wasd to control) and then check out the examples and sample source here. They work better on a Pre than my little laptop.

    No need for me to cheer up, I'm been laughing and smiling more than usual on this one.
    Originally, I figured the OP possibly was offended by the "attack dogs", or possibly was faking it. In light of ... more "recent developments" ... I suspect it's more likely he was sitting back laughing his **** off (with his friend from Palm) at all the "expert opinions" offering "proof".

    Which experts (drips under pressure) would they be? The OP has no need to say a word. It's almost all been said.
