PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "HP today began executing its plan to deliver an open webOS by committing to a schedule for making the platform's source code available under an open source license. The company aims to complete this milestone in its entirety by September. HP also announced it is releasing version 2.0 of webOS's innovative developer tool, Enyo. Enyo 2.0 enables developers to write a single application that works across mobile devices and desktop web browsers, from the webOS, iOS and Android platforms to the Internet Explorer and Firefox browsers - and more. The source code for Enyo is available today, giving the open source community immediate access to the acclaimed application framework for webOS."

Spent the last day or so playing with Enyo 2 for the first time... I'm really impressed! Enyo is a really well designed framework and I'm very happy that HP has freed it - I would have never seen it otherwise...

ps. For the developers out there Enyo 2 is not a WebOS thing - it no longer has any dependencies on WebOS, webkit, or HP hardware devices. It now works on all the major browsers (even IE). It is a simple and elegant application development framework for building HTML5 apps in JavaScript. It's also tightly namespaced, so you can use it along with other frameworks (jQuery, Prototype, Mojo, whatever). Highly recommend giving it a look.
