Palm Pulls Back the Curtain on webOS Technical Details

Palm has released the first chapter of a book that details its new webOS. It answers some of the questions people had about developing applications for the new platform. “You can think of webOS applications as native applications, but built from the same standard HTML, CSS and JavaScript that you’d use to develop web applications. Palm has extended the standard web development environment through a JavaScript framework that gives standardized UI widgets, and access to selected device hardware and services. The user experience is optimized for launching and managing multiple applications at once. WebOS is designed around multi-tasking, and makes it utterly simple to run background applications, to switch between applications in a single step, and to easily handle interruptions and events without losing context.” Ars has more.
