    I know its not an announced feature, but for those at precentral.net who have access to the pre 2, does webOS 2.0 have hardware acceleration. ie, do the launcher pages/browser scroll super smooth like the iOS

    What qualifies as css transitions? Isn't the launcher (as well as most of webos gui) just html and css and javascript?

    I, too, would like to know this, the videos weren't very enlightening... It's really something you can only properly see in person.

    The word was always that the choppiness of UI-level animations would be ameliorated by hardware accelleration.

    All I know is that the engadget review noted how zippy and fluid everything was, "neck-to-neck with iOS4". That may be an indication that those fabled CSS transforms have finally arrived.

    css transitions is exactly what it sounds like

    anytime an animation is playing like a card opening or the launcher opening is hardware accelerated.

    Anything like scrolling I think is not.

    But with 1ghz its not needed.

    Disagree. Anything that takes load off the CPU is a good thing...

    Indeed. Use of the GPU should help save battery life too.

    So, does it perform better at the initial rendering of long lists?

    I got confused so does the palm pre 2 have GPU??? I mean good one like the one in the n8 forexample ???

    I'm curious about this as well. I have the beta, but it's so snappy on a PC it's hard to tell, and the virtual box wouldn't have the same video hardware emulation.

    According to Palm it has the same crappy battery life as the first line of Pres. The lack of battery life in these phones is embarrassing.

    Even with 1ghz, i still frequently get lag. Sometimes it will just freeze for around 3 -5 seconds. Its really annoying.

    at that point try doing a restart. I've noticed that happens sometimes when I add or remove a patch and it doesn't request a restart. so I do a restart anyway. it seems to have cleared that up.

    According to Engadget the Pre2 has better battery life on their pre-release device.

    Then we'll have to wait and see what the general consensus is from it's actual users on multiple networks. That's just silly, mixed information.
