PDK Hot Apps program delayed, altered

As Palm's regular Hot Apps program rolls to a close and eager developers await their share of $1 million dollars, it looks like Palm's going to take a small breather before they start their next developer campaign - PDK hot apps, which was previously meant to start tomorrow, will now start on July 15th. We aren't suggesting that the delay is related to the fact that webOS 1.4.5 is still MIA, though, because we don't like to merely 'suggest' things we strongly believe.

Anyhow, this should give developers more time to get their 3D Games going. Palm is also significantly re-jiggering the prize structure, giving the most downloaded app developers an amount that won't be glanced askance at by any but the biggest development houses: $100,000 for the top, $50,000 for the next four, $10,000 for the next 15, and the last 50 getting $1000 in store credit at HP or an HP Envy.

The PDK Hot Apps contest runs through September 30th.
