HP extends free developer Pre 2 program to all qualified developers

HP clearly wants to make sure as many webOS apps are developer as possible in the coming months until the Veer, Pre 3, and TouchPad are finally released. To that end, they’ve elected to expand their free developer Pre 2 program to all qualified developers, not just those first 100 that Palm selected. In a post on the Developer Center Blog, HP pushes very hard that Enyo is the future of webOS apps and that developers should give serious consideration to developing in it instead of Mojo, saying that “you should factor in the effort that will be required to rebuild these apps in Enyo.”

Considering the ease of drag-and-drop Enyo development we saw at the Think Beyond developer event, that doesn’t sound like a bad idea. Of course, in the meantime you’ll be left developing apps that nobody can buy until devices like the Veer land with webOS 2.X (or if/when 2.X gets pushed to the Pre 2). Are you a developer interested in finding out whether or not you meet the criteria that define “qualified”? You’ll find directions at the source link below.
