HP Releases webOS 3 Enyo Beta 30

by Dieter Bohn Wed, 30 Mar 2011 1:48 pm EDT

HP just announced that they are releasing the webOS 3.0 Beta (with Enyo support, natch) today at the webOS CONNECT event in London. Presumably the SDK is only available to Early Access developers, so you'll need to sign up in order to get access. Update: We just heard from HP that yes, only Early Access developers will be able to download the SDK - but from what we hear from plenty of developers it's not difficult to get into the program. HP will have more details soon enough on a new developer portal they're putting up at http://developer.hpwebos.com/, we'll update as soon as we see them.

Developers - it's time to make TouchPad apps!

Breaking... More details as we get them!

SWEET!!! however, i really hope that 3.0 doesn't mark the end of the gesture area altogether!! That is one 'no bueno' I have about the Touchpad!

HP/PALM -KEEP THE FREAKIN' GESTURES!!!!

I had to return an ipad because i kept swiping the bezel and nothing happened.

you might have to return the touchpad for the same reason...

I'm sure one of the first apps out of the gate from WebOS internals is going to be "Add gesture area to bottom of launcher"

I imagine it could be a FloatOver Translucent bar and follow orientation. Interface could look like and kinda work like Launchy for Windows...

We keep hearing of OS updates after OS update while HTC keeps coming out with phone after phone after phone.
Hey! Let's get some hardware out in the field we can use!

With the hundreds of android phones out there, seemingly like 1 new one released per day, they are all the same since they all use the same OS. Until Google makes android 3 on phones, every new release is just rehashing the same thing already out.

welll the different manufacturers have their own UIs implemented on their devices. HTC has 2 diff ones actually. have you seen what Sammy has done with Tocuhwiz 4.0? its actually quite intriguing... i hope HP gets some hardware to market soon cuz my Android envy might take me over haha

htc phones a fairly iterative. often what they call a new phone is just an old phone with a new name. that said, i would be opposed to hp ramping up their release schedule. i'm sure part of the hold up has been about gettin the OS to a point where it can provide an enjoyable experience on a variety of formfactors. i think they'll increase the pace once enyo gets its feet planted.

Yes, they have a bajillion phones, but sooner or later they will top-out the specs, then what? It's all about the software, the hardware can only do so much.

nice to see that they got the sdk out in a fairly timely matter. is it under NDA? i'd like to see them steer clear of the train wreak that has been the 2.0 sdk release...

Yeah. It'll be under NDA.

Who cares how many new phones are released when they all have the same OS on them? I am waiting for a new phone with webOS on it, not android.

Probably the people who want to see WebOS thrive in the smartphone market, not just the printer/toaster market. Every new Android, iOS, or WP7 phone is one more consumer HP is missing out on, especially in this time frame.

With virtually no WebOS 2.0 products on the market, no firm release dates, no pricing or launch carriers, our beloved webOS isn't even in the fight.

Sad but true

the look and feel of Android can differ a decent amount from different Anroid phones made by different manufactures. just so you know... i 2 want a new webos phone. however the first phone to catch my eye when i get my refund check is the one im getting cuz i am using a busted phone atm

waiting to see what this breaking news and more details are...

That doesn't really mean much to those of us who can't even get an "Offical" download of webOS 2.

sweet. when's it gonna 'drop' then?

Coming.....soon

MOST OF US ARE 1.4.5 DON'T EVEN HAVE A CLUE WHAT'S ON 2.O.. NOW 3.O, AND NO HARDWARE?

I BET LOTS OF DEVELOPERS MADE APPS FOR 2.O, AND FOR WHAT? NOW THEY NEED TO WORK ON 3.O? NONESENSE :(

ALL APPS MADE FOR 1.4.5 AND FOR 2.0 WILL ALSO WORK IN 3.0

WHY ARE WE SHOUTING?

BECAUSE IT GETS THEIR POINT ACROSS! EITHER WAY. YOUR NEW HARDWARE HAS BEEN ANNOUNCED, BE PATIENT AND WAIT TILL IT IS RELEASED AND THEN YOU WILL HAVE AN IDEA OF WHATS "ON" WEBOS 2.0/3.0

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO PATIENCE?

patience died when people started to think they're entitled to everything in society.

Agreed. Meanwhile millions of people have lost their homes, their lives, their families all over the world. Be thankful for what you have. Pray for those less fortunate than any of us. God Bless.

yup
no one is ever happy
they're more concerned about a stupid cell phone rather than whats going on around the world, and even their own country

It's always want want want, now now now, and nothing is every good enough.

Well, as I keep telling myself, if someone thinks it's not good enough then please do everyone a favour, submit your resume to Palm/HP i'm sure they'd love to take a look at it if you can make that much of a difference.

VOICE IMMODULATION PROBLEMS, SORRY!

Stacks, Just Type, etc. You have seen it haven't you?

Yay!!! I am excited. HP is in this to win. Great things ahead.

So they have from now til June to crank out the apps. Sweet! We might just be lookin' at a polished, (relatively) app-filled environment on the Touchpad at launch. This is good news!
