The Official Palm Blog: Mojo SDK available to all: "Mojo SDK available to all
After a successful early access program, Palm’s Mojo Software Development Kit is available to all interested app developers. The SDK can be downloaded from a new developer portal -- Palm webOSdev -- at developer.palm.com. Any interested developer with a valid email address can access the SDK, its associated documentation, and new Mojo developer forums.
The initial response to Palm webOS apps -- from both developers and customers -- has been enthusiastic. Even in its initial beta stage, over 1.8 million apps have been downloaded from the beta App Catalog since Palm Pre was released less than six weeks ago. Thousands of developers have participated in the Mojo SDK early access program since it began in early April. New applications are in the pipeline for the Palm App Catalog, and the App Catalog submission process will be opened to all developers beginning this fall.
Developers interested in exploring Palm webOS and the Mojo SDK further may be interested in these upcoming events:"
This is much more than it appears. The pre re4presents the clear evolution of the handheld into a web appliance. Other OS do this too0, but Web OS is the first time an OS has been developed with its hardware specifically for this purpose. Android might dispute this but the level of integration in my Pre is very different than any other "phone' Basically the line between talk and web is invisible.
Google and MS may want to remember that Palm was founded as an OS company. Their business model wilol be worth watching.
