No ETA on Documents To Go Premium for webOS 138
We heard some big news about Documents To Go Premium today at Mobile World Congress. Big news for other platforms. DocsToGo for iPhone is getting local sync and Google Docs Sync. DocsToGo for Android is getting those sync options and also printing and projector support.
When we asked about an ETA for DocsToGo Premium for webOS, however, DataViz wasn't able to say, nor even confirm that the first half of 2010 (the last delay) is still the target, although DataViz's product page still lists "early 2010" as the expected date.
It's a major bummer, given that Documents To Go Premium is stellar on BlackBerry, iPhone, Android, Windows Mobile, PalmOS, and Symbian (click the image above to expand). DocsToGo Premium is also the number one paid business app on the iPhone App Store and DataViz has sold over 50,000 premium licenses on the Android Market. DataViz wasn't this blunt but we will be: a developer's gotta eat.
Palm simply hasn't sold enough webOS devices to force developers to sit up, take notice, and feel compelled to adjust their schedules and develop for the platform. We can't say for sure that other platform priorities have pushed back work on the webOS version - but it wouldn't shock us and as much as it pains us to say it, you can't blame a developer for working on what's hot.
