I am still not sure why PALM is not releasing their web os to third party developers. They also must know by now that if they have to stand a chance in front of apple, they need to have those APPS. I had applied for the OS on their website about two weeks back, and have not received a acknowledgment as yet.
iPhone has thousands of apps just about to do anything in this world. I cant think of an app which is not there. The one good thing about Palm pre web OS, is it will have a short learning curve, since its OS is mainly web based like java script and so on.
In my view they must release the web development kit at the earliest to undo any further damage.
