PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless It's no secret that the webOS is no speed demon. Sure, it has the most elegant multitasking interface (the fact that it multitasks at all means it bests both Android and iOS), but it's not exactly fast. This is all going to change. Palm held its Developer Day in New York this weekend, and unveiled its new application development framework, set to replace the current Mojo framework. Not only will this new framework, named Enyo, be a lot faster than Mojo, it will also be designed around multiple display resolutions.

Can't Wait, Will the Market?

HP is fully aware it needs new devices to draw the crowds, and the company stated that we'll see a whole bunch of new devices coming early next year. I can't wait.


I just wonder if the market will hold off that long, or if by the time HP decides to put WebOS out there the tablet and smart phone markets will have already been won by Android? The market wants what it wants when it wants it and they won't always wait for best to come along when there is "good enough" available for use now. Even Google is finding this out considering the rate of various Android powered devices coming out despite the company's very public announcements saying current releases do not run well on tablets and were intended for smart phones only.

People don't care, they want tablet computing now and will take what they can get. If HP doesn't get gearing they may find the market already saturated and be stuck playing "me too" to a host of competitors.
