Palm: open-source webOS apps free to make

,----[ Quote ]
| Palm at a special event tonight staked out its 
| differences with Apple by making key changes to its 
| developer program. The smartphone developer is one of 
| the first after Google to foster open development and 
| said it will dismiss its usual $99 app submission fee 
| for any developer whose webOS apps are open-source. Back 
| end data on app downloads and other sales info will also 
| be available to all developers on request.


Palm launch Open Source Developer Program

,----[ Quote ]
| Palm has announced a programme for open source 
| developers wishing to write for Palm's Linux based 
| WebOS. For closed source applications the Palm developer 
| programme requires an upfront fee of $99 (Â62) from 
| developers, with a $50 (Â31) fee for each app that is 
| published through Palm's App Catalogue. For open source 
| developers both the up front fee and the per app fee is 
| waived. Palm's WebOS currently only runs on Palm's Pre 
| and Pixi phones; the Pre is due to be available in the 
| UK from the 16th of October from O2.



Palm Pre Linux-Based Smartphone Reviewed

| Wi-Fi performance-to the extent it's possible to test it-is
| good. The current inability to use Wi-Fi for anything but
| Internet access is unfortunate, but we can hope that Palm
| or some third-party developer will deliver an app in the
| future that adds that capability.


The Pre and Me

,----[ Quote ]
| The Palm Pre is the first real competitor to the iPhone.
| Those who are Apple fanatics will still go with the iPhone,
| I'm sure, but this is definitely a great phone. And if you
| love how Palm approaches things, then you'll love how they
| take things to the next level with this smart phone.
| In the end, it really comes down to what you're interested
| in and what functionality you need. For me? The Pre is the
| answer. Just ignore those awful, awful commercials.


WebOS upgraded as Palm tips more carriers

,----[ Quote ]
| Palm announced WebOS 1.2 for the Palm Pre and Palm Pixi,
| featuring a new App Catalog, LinkedIn support, Amazon MP3
| downloads, and numerous fixes and enhancements. Palm also
| announced that more carriers will offer the Pre smartphone
| late next year, according to an industry report.
