WebOS 2.0: New Screenshots surface

New round of screenshots of the long awaited WebOS 2.0 screenshots emerge. What does this mean to us in India? As you all know Palm is now Hp and Hp has an awesome presence in India which the Palm never had. Palm had a major comeback(before the hp acquisition) with its very important releases, namely the WebOS and Plam Pre which we could never see in the Indian market(Legally). As I mentioned this might have been due to the lack of the market presence or the demand for Palm based devices in India.

Lewis Hamilton in Chennai

An old news it may be, but I decided to publish it anyway. I should have attended this, but owing to some health issues I was at the hospital instead... :-)

Anyway, it was good to know this and to see the merc being rocked by him. He was here in India for a promotional event which is the Indian Grand Prix scheduled for next year at New Delhi(Noida). There were some contests by Vodafone and others of which the winners got a chance to accompany Hamilton's drive on the Madras Motor Race Track. Hit the link for more info
