Everyone needs affirmation from time to time, and there were questions raised concerning HP’s support of homebrew webOS development – what with the TouchPad being ready to rock and roll. Some quarters have seen the move of shutting down the open feeds as a stand against the homebrew community, but you now know HP’s true colors as they decided to show their support for continued homebrew development from WebOS Internals – HP engineers actually assisted homebrew developers in porting their apps over to the TouchPad at the recent workshops that were held around the globe.
Not only that, HP also decided to hand over a few of the leading WebOS Internals developers (Rod Whitby included ) pre-release TouchPads so that they can play around with their homebrew work. This 9.7″ tablet that runs on webOS 3.0 will launch in a couple of weeks’ time, and we’re all stoked up for it.
