webOS 1.4.5 gears Pixi for 3D gaming, squeezes extra battery life from Pre

Palm’s latest webOS update is already rolling to Pre’s and Pixi’s out there fixing some bugs and bringing a few enhancements. It optimizes the Pre’s battery usage, while Pixi finally gets the long awaited OpenGL and SDL support.

Thanks to webOS 1.4.5 all the latest Palm devices are ready for 3D gaming. Here is a video showing Need for Speed: Undercover up and running on the Pixi fella.

The game runs pretty well with a reasonable framerate, which proves Pixi is now ready for the serious mobile gaming scene.

Can’t wait to see what webOS 2.0 will be capable of.
