by Adam Marks Mon, 22 Nov 2010 10:08 am EST

Day 2 of webOS Developer Day started off strong with the keynote address by Ben & Dion, Phil McKinney and Joe Hayashi, and ended by dropping a huge bomb (in a good way) with a sneak peak of Enyo, the next generation webOSframework that will really propel webOS capabilities and development to the next level. And in between, there was a long, fun filled day of presentations, demonstrations, Pre 2 giveaways, extreme hackery and just a whole lot of fun. As with Friday's sessions, all of the videos have been uploaded to Palm's YouTube site, but we have summarized all for you them below.
