Next version of webOS targeted for late May or early June; More PDK apps en route

Palm has given developers the heads-up that a "webOS Update [is] Coming Soon" and developers need to be ready to test their apps on the new version. In "early May" there will be an SDK release candidate, giving developers a short week to test their apps, and two to three more "before the update lands on consumer devices."

In other words, Palm looks to be targeting a release of the next version of webOS for late May or early June. The good news is exactly what in-the-know webOS lovers would hope: as predicted, Palm looks to be ramping up native 'PDK' apps for this release. 

The email indicates that this won't be a major update, and that timeframe is probably a little too early for the big, structural changes outline in Palm's Dev Day keynote, but we're excited to see what smaller / indie developers have been cooking up with the PDK.

Thanks to everybody who sent this in!
