Today at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Palm announced that it is bringing the ability to record and edit videos to webOS.At today's press conference, Palm talked a lot about developers' tools, apps, services, discoverability. That's all well and good, but it also announced a real new feature for webOS.

Palm will be pushing out and over-the-air update to all webOS devices (Pre and Pixi) that will enable video recording and editing without the need to purchase additional hardware. This is a feature that has been sorely lacking on webOS.

The recording feature works nearly identically to that of the iPhone's on-device video editing tool. It lets users crop a video and reduce the size of the clip. Users can then upload to sites such as YouTube, Facebook, and MySpace with a single tap. Uploads will occur the background. Once uploaded, webOS will alert the user and give then the opportunity to send SMS links or MMS messages to the video to their friends.

The update will be free and will be available in February.
