No firm plans yet and we have to get Android and Blackberry completed first. We'd certainly like to support WebOS and the Pre if possible. The actual development would be fairly straightforward for us. The two big questions are a) will Palm move enough WebOS phones for the numbers to make sense to us; and b) Will Palm allow anyone to install our low-level driver out-of-the-box without needing to hack/root/jailbreak the phone?
Our software driver is too complex to be written in the current WebOS Mojo SDK fashion, so we'd have to have much lower level access and also wouldn't write our driver using the Web standards-based method that current Pre developers can use. Palm doesn't give developers that kind of access now, nor do they give customers a way to install that type of app through the Palm App Catalog.
It's promising for us that MotionApps Classic is available because it looks pretty clear that Palm gave them lower level access compared to your typical Mojo developer. However, we may need even lower-level access than MotionApps received in order to develop a REDFLY driver so all bets are off.
We've been amazingly impressed with the Pre and would love to support WebOS.
Feedback from our customers will certainly help us make a decision too so please speak out if you'd like to see WebOS support.
Thanks for the thoughtful, informative reply Colin, I too have been "been amazingly impressed with the Pre". And that's saying something for a confirmed WinMo aficionado like myself. I went down to the Sprint store Saturday, and was told not only are they sold out, but there's a waiting list.
I'm not sure they will transfer my SERO plan to a Pre though, so all bets may be off!
Sorry bioart, still no news on the Pre. As soon as we get BlackBerry, WM 6.5 and Android we would like to work more on the Pre but to date none of the issues above have been really addressed in a way that would help us out.
