Palm Prē smartphone with Klingon theme
webOS is a mobile operating system introduced by Palm in 2009. It was once declared that "webOS has more Klingon apps than any other mobile platform".

The first webOS enabled device was the Palm Prē which was released in June of 2006. By August 2009, Chris Lipscombe already had pIqaD fonts working on the phone. By January 2010, Michael Roney had developed a pIqaD keyboard app. By April 2010, Michael Roney was contacted to translate the OS into Klingon. Several Klingon language and Klingon-related apps were released for the OS. There were also several developers that added Klingon translations to their existing apps.

William Shatner is a noteable Palm Prē user
