    Yeah, I miss a homescreen dearly.

    A useful homescreen (especially one that could be viewed while the phone is locked) is something i miss dearly. I didn't realize how often I used to take my phone out push a button and see the weather, read my calendar and see how many messages I have waiting.

    I could open apps to do this, but that can take a few minutes. and I probably don't have a few minutes when I am preparing for another meeting.

    Okay, I'm rendering it out and uploading soon. I'm open to criticism and suggestions, and I'd like to remind everyone, it's still a rough concept...

    I'm not a fan of widgets, but I suppose this could work. Well done on the animation. I quite like the swipe-the-desktop-down idea.

    With Jason's new Launcher Auto-Popup patch, your Palm Pre can now instantly pop up the Launcher when you turn on your Pre.

    The iPhone-Black-Launcher theme is designed to work with this patch to make your Pre or Pixi turn on with a solid black background like the iPhone. The iPhone-Black-Launcher theme is available through Preware and PreThemer.

    Our old "Homescreens" were before multi-tasking. Now with multi-tasking and this patch you can have the best of both worlds. You get your "Homescreen" Launcher but only if no other apps are running.

    The most common reaction when people see this is to say that they did not know that Apple had released the next generation iPhone.

    Meh, to iPhone for me, but still, a nice option, I may check it out.
    LG Rumor -> HTC Touch -> Palm Pixi -> Palm Pre+ (if they ever bring it to Sprint)

    The only thing I miss about a home screen is having a small area that tells me what today's appointments are / what conference room they are in. I don't care for having to open the Calendar card (since it's irritatingly slow, even with the 1.3.5 update) to check what meetings I have each time.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but couldn't we just create an application sort of like GeekTool (google it, I can't post links because I don't have 10 posts yet ) that can run simple terminal scripts to do all the stuff we want. I feel that widgets could really compliment the Pre, even simple stuff as just having the weather up or calendar appointments. All that stuff would be a pretty simple script to code as long as you have a program like GeekTool to run. I haven't really looked at how anything is coded for the Pre yet, but I'm pretty sure if I do get a Pre or WebOS phone I would definitely look into doing this if someone doesn't do it before me.

    Well, that could be a widget which fits perfectly back with the concept video.

    +1.

    When I bought the Pre... I assumed this would be an easy dev project since everything was "web based" in css, javascript, etc...

    Hi Craig,

    I disagree that multitasking trumps the use/need for a homescreen. There are certain items that I would like to be able to see at a seconds notice (Weather, calendar, email messages). In the current WebOS world, I can open up each app and have them sitting up as cards, but that still takes a few minutes to set up that way.

    I could deal with that if there were some way to see a few of my most needed items through the lock screen.

    Example: I am often in meetings and need info before I head to the next one. I got used to being able to look on my HTC Touch Pro (with Slide2Unlock), push the power button and see a screen with the time, my next appointment, and emails/sms/voicemails and if it looked like I'd be driving to the airport in rain or sunshine. With the current Pre set up, I would have to open the keyboard, type in my password, open the apps (if I forgot to before) and flick to three different screens.

    I guess I got used to the utility of it...

    Very cool concept would hope to see this or some variantion show up on the Pre one day. Maybe even using the down swipe gesture.
