Even with all the exciting news from this week, a lot of questions have been floating around about our plans and how they affect you and our customers. As such, we recognize that we need to do a better job communicating developments in a more timely, detailed and thoughtful way.
For now, we want to address the webOS 2.0 update in particular and what resources we’ll provide to make this transition easier for everyone.
webOS 2.0 Availability
First off, the decision not to release webOS 2.0 for the Pre and Pixi was incredibly tough, knowing that we couldn’t deliver the latest and greatest to people that supported webOS from the very beginning. But, it was a decision that had to be made and we hope our plans for the next generation of webOS will provide the best platform for everyone moving forward. Here are some additional thoughts for your reference.
Supporting the transition to webOS 2.0 and beyond
With the exciting announcement of HP’s all-new Veer, Pre 3 and game-changing TouchPad, we want to give you the resources you need to develop apps for webOS 2.0 and beyond:
- Extending our free Pre 2 program for qualified developers: Contact us at email@example.com – we want to help you test your app on the latest devices.
- Redoubling our resources to support developers: We are actively expanding resources to help you develop for webOS, from how we handle email support via firstname.lastname@example.org to a dedicated team that’s better equipped to help you every step of the way.
- New incentives and promotions: We’ll share more details about how we intend to reward your efforts and support of webOS.
It’s a start. We want to provide the resources you need and deserve every step of the way, whatever it takes. There’s a lot of buzz around the new webOS devices and the future of the platform, which offer a great opportunity for your apps now and in the future. HP is going to provide the strongest support and promotion webOS has ever had – and it all starts with you. Stay tuned!
