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.

"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?"

Whilst having an established king pin makes it hard to enter a market and have success, it's not impossible. You just have to do it better than the established players.

Some examples:

* XBox came into a market won by Sony and is now the leading console.

* Firefox came into a market won by Microsoft IE as is now a major player.

I'm not saying that Palm will have success, but I do contend that it's not impossible.
