New Mojo SDK screenshots give a glimpse into the little touches, panic

Airplane Mode

In the desert that is Pre news, we’ll take whatever we can get, and courtesy of Palm webOS Blog we’ve done some getting. Even if it is a glimpse of what it looks like when everything goes wrong. But there are some nice touches too, say when you switch into airplane mode, not only does it say Airplane Mode in place of your network, but it also throws a little jet plane into in where your signal strength would otherwise be. Also, it looks like when you start charging your Pre, not only does the battery icon get the little lightning bolt, but you get a notification in the dock that makes sure you’re fully aware of the charging status.


KERNEL PANIC!!!

Palm webOS Blog’s screenshots of the Mojo SDK includes a look at what happens when things go horribly wrong. Being based on Linux, webOS can be tripped up every now and then, and when that happens, you can get what’s called a kernel panic. For Windows users, it’s the equivalent of a Blue Screen of Death, and only pops up when something happens that just does not compute, and forces the system to shut itself down to prevent really bad things happening. Hopefully, we won’t be seeing that screen very often.

Thanks to Evgeny for the tip!
