PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "There was a piece of news that didn't happen to get mentioned at last night's developer event. HP has made a donation to a charity on behalf of the WebOS Internals homebrew group that is valued at over $10,000. A few weeks ago, it became clear that future growth in webOS would outpace the server infrastructure that WebOS Internals currently has in place. They were going to need some beefy hardware to keep up with the demands of acting as the a central repository for webOS homebrew apps, patches, and kernels. So they asked HP's Phil McKinney, who has arranged to donate an HP Proliant DL385 2u server with 32 gigs of RAM and 8 terabytes of disk space. They made the decision a few weeks ago and the server is en route." Very welcome news. Like Palm before it, HP gets it.

I saw something about WebOS apps being QT development capable. If this is true this would bumb up number of third party developed apps in a short time.

Blackberry's up and coming support for Android apps is confirmed. Maybe HP can also do the same.

if WebOs can run native code it should be possible to port Qt to it. I dont' know how easily it would be to make such apps integrate themselves into webos but getting Qt itself running should be in the realm of possibility.

There is an option to install QT from Preware. The link to the developer's web site leads <a href=http://www.griffin.net>here.
