WebOS' version of the App Store to be called App Catalog
Which apps would you like to see for the Pre?Palm Pre Hands-on
Last week at this time, the public was unaware of the excitement that was about to be unleashed at the CES by Palm. Written off for dead by most cellphone consumers and analysts, the troubled manufacturer has done the impossible by introducing the public to its brand new smartphone, the Pre. The touchscreen device will be the first model to use Palm's new WebOS. The response has been positive and the Palm Pre seems to be on everyone's mind. Just since Thursday's announcement, more than 250 videos about the Pre have been uploaded on YouTube. And of course, there have already been the comparisons between the Pre and that other phone from Apple-the iPhone. In all seriousness, one place where Palm is following in the footsteps of Apple is by having an app store for the Pre. The store for the iPhone is called, simply, the Apple App Store. the new Palm developer site states that the Pre will have the Palm App Catalog. The same report notes that the SDK, now limited to a private pre-release, will eventually get more widespread release as the Pre itself gets closer to getting onto the public's hands.
