By Posted 4 Jan 2010, 12:27

As most of you will be already aware, webOS has now been updated to 1.3.5 and has been available since last week. As expected, webOS enthusiasts have spent some time with the new version and have revealed that devices such as the Palm Pre could have support for full 3D gaming this year.

As reported from BGR, two new videos have surfaced, showing the Palm Pre running 3D classics such as Doom and Quake, all thanks to the discovery of native application support within the update.

With the inclusion of an SDL (Simple DirectMedia Layer) directory at their disposal, it now means that webOS developers have access to the underlying graphics hardware on the Pre, paving the way for a whole collection of 3D gaming possibilities.

Exciting stuff if you are a Palm Pre owner for sure, let us know your thoughts on this. Check out the videos mentioned in the link above.
