Earlier this evening, I received an email from Palm announcing an expanded software development kit (SDK), their plans for cloud computing services and integration, and yes, Palm OS emulation is coming to webOS!
“Today at the Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco, Palm announced its webOS Early Access Program for developers. The Mojo SDK, previously available only to a select group of partners, will now be provided to a broader set of interested developers that apply for access at the Palm Developer Network website here: http://developer.palm.com. Initially, access to the program will be limited as the tools and systems continue to be refined and improved, with general availability scheduled for later this year. Additionally, Palm announced its plans for integrating cloud services into the new platform and an application from MotionApps that will allow legacy Palm OS applications to run on webOS devices.”
This is totally awesome! Palm is finally starting to talk about the things that have been driving me nuts since January!
