HP webOS 3.0 SDK released to developers

HP managed to keep webOS 3.0 pretty well off the radar until the Think Beyond event, when it was in full display on the company's new TouchPad tablet. Now that the new OS has been outed, it's time for HP to get developers involved. Developers who are members of the formerly-Palm Early Access channel can now download the webOS 3.0 SDK (codenamed 'Enyo'). You'll need to email pdc@palm.com to get your hands on it, though.

Interestingly, Enyo is totally resolution-independent -- meaning developers can use it to create apps for the lilliputian Veer or the big, beefy TouchPad. There will be a bit of a learning curve for those who have developed with Palm's Mojo SDK, but HP did state that older Mojo-based apps will still be supported in the new SDK.

Enyo also has hardware acceleration chops, which should allow devs to deliver plenty of great apps. Now we'll just have to wait and see whether or not HP can get them interested enough to code for the platform.
