First paid webOS apps land! [Updated: Free Apps Too!]

Air Hockey in the App Catalog

Update 9:54 Eastern: Palm has pulled nearly all of the paid apps (we see only Checkers Pro) while they fix what we understand from the folks at webos-internals to be a critical security bug. We'll update again when we have more.

What a long (but surprisingly quick) road it’s been, but the time is finally here. Welcome to the world of paid webOS applications! Starting at about 4 PM EST today, paid applications made their entry into the App Catalog, starting with the $1.99 Air Hockey from Acceleroto, the same company behind the popular Air Hockey game for the iPhone (though this version appears to be limited to just player-vs-phone for now).

This is the first of what we expect to be many and numerous paid apps for the Pre, but when we’ll see more is anyone’s best guess.
