WebOS by PalmOS – A New way to mobile

I came across this article on the latest product from Palm. These are the same guys who first brought us smartphones that blew the competition out of their shoes.

They have done it again. 

The system promises great usability, and the general why-we-are-better sales pitch. 🙂

What caught my eye was how the system is architected. It is the first truely open platform for mobiles. They call this new platform PR, and it comes with a new operating system called WebOS.

“… all the software running on the device is a combination of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.”

It is attractive for me, being a techie and a developer, because, If i want to, I could build my own from scratch, not just theme it. It is something like what Symbian has for mobile phone manufacturers. There is no such distinction. Also, the platform is based almost exclusivly on Open Standards throughout all the development layers.

Only time will tell if it received wide adaptation from the mobile user community. Perhaps it will be a hot-seller for the tech-savy/hobbiest-developer/serious developer demographic.
