Developers: webOS Lives Up to the Hype

by Jonathan Downer Tue, 21 Apr 2009 2:05 pm EDT

We’re admittedly a little late to the game on this one, but we’re none-the-less happy to report that early developer feedback is pointing toward webOS living up to the hype. John Cox from Network World has written up an excellent article covering some of the early work done with webOS, as well as a great explanation of what makes up the webOS operating system.

Cox does a great job of hitting the key points such as multi-tasking, web integration (Synergy), and the use of pre-existing programming languages. He also offers up one of the better explanations of how Pre applications will run, that I’ve seen. I highly recommend jumping over and giving the article a read, if you haven’t already.

Do we have any developers out there that have had a chance to work with webOS? Is the article spot on, or are they too biased in one direction or another? Give us your thoughts in the comments (even if you aren’t a developer)!

Thanks to everybody that sent this in!
