Palm has decided to give future versions of webOS to developers early so that they can get a head start on verifying the compatibility of their apps. This is a really smart move as we wouldn’t want to have to wait on an app for an update after just updating our handsets.
We are already seeing Palm come through as they have already sent webOS 1.3.1 to a select number of developers. Don’t you wish you could get your hands on an early copy of this firmware as you could with the iPhone? Who knows, the future might prove to be a good one for early adopters of the unfinished firmware.
