HP Distributing webOS 3.0 SDK to Developers
HP today announced that it is offering a software developer kit (SDK) of webOS 3.0 to those developers registered to its Early Access program. Though webOS 3.0 will initially appear on HP's TouchPad tablet later this year, HP said that some elements seen in the refreshed user interface will eventually trickle down to its smartphones. The webOS 3.0 SDK lets developers use the new Enyo framework, integrate Just Type, Synergy and Exhibition into their apps, as well as find information about designing and structuring apps.
