How is Google Wave on the Pre?

Rédigé par Robert Werlinger le Mardi 20 Octobre 2009

Our sister site, The iPhone blog, recently posted about Google's new Wave technology and how it worked wonderfully as a WebApp for the iPhone.  Having recently set up my Wave account, one of the first things I did was to see how well it worked through Palm's own WebKit based browser, hoping that a mobile page would be delivered when I visited the site. The result?

Not good as evidenced by the "Memory critical, too many cards!" dialog in the screenshot to the right.  I was served the desktop version, and attempting to load the desktop version caused the Pre's browser to grind to an absolute crawl, which is to be expected of any smartphone currently on the market.

I suspect that a page optimized for the Pre's browser is coming down the pipe sooner than later, but for those who can't wait to get their mobile Wave on, there's a solution: the Pre's browser (using webOS Quick Install from our homebrew section) can be patched to have it report itself as Mobile Safari to any web server, which means you get the very same mobile page that's delivered to the iPhone delivered to the Pre.
