EverythingPre reports Palm is working on a performance patch for its webOS operating system:
One of the frustrating parts of using Palm’s webOS is the lack of speed when accessing menus and in general the UI at times feels sluggish. With hardware on par with Apple’s iPhone 3GS, the speed of the UI just doesn’t feel as fast as it should given the hardware. Longtime Linux (and webOS) developer Jamie Zawinski left the Pre citing performance as one of the reasons. While the speed has been improved with the last few updates, the good news is that speed of the UI is definitely on Palm’s radar. At a webOS Developer Event in London, Palm’s dynamic duo Ben and Dion spoke about the issue.
