Palm to Offer Web-Based Developer Tools for webOS

The platform, called Ares, will feature a drag-and-drop interface and won't require developers to download APIs or other tools. Ares will include debugging tools, the ability to share APIs, and a phone emulator that allows developers to see how their applications look in both landscape and portrait orientations. Ares will work in Safari and Firefox, but not Internet Explorer. It will be available by the end of the year.

Wow... Palm is losing
Looks like no one really cares. You have Blackberry hauling @$$ with AppWorld, Android hauling @$$ with Market, and iphone obviously ruling with there app store and then you have Palm and it's Pre and Pixi. The only way to make the Palm half decent is to homebrew the thing. So much hope fading.
