iSilo coming to webOS, eventually

iSilo Are you ready for a blast from the past? I doubt it, but here it goes anyway: iSilo is being developed for webOS. Yeah, that just happened. The classic iSilo eBook/document reader from way back in the glory days of Palm OS is currently being worked on for webOS deep inside iSilo headquarters, and according to a posting on the iSilo message boards, is still a few months out from a release date announcement.

For the uninitiated, iSilo’s reader software is able to read PDB files (another blast from the past there), plain text TXT, iSilo-formatted files (full of images and hyperlinks), and can take just about any file stored on the device and display the text within. The highly-customizable interface had found its way onto more than a dozen platforms, with webOS as the only major mobile operating system left untouched at this point.

We’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for future updates from the iSilo front, though we fear the next few months while we await a release announcement are going to be straight up torture.
