Interesting Idea from Palm

Palm is certainly working on interesting ideas. WebOS, although lacking, is certainly interesting since you can write applications using standard web development tools. Well Palm has a new tool to make development easy.

Ares is a web based WebOS development tools. Apparently it’s supposed to make already easy development (seriously WebOS is dead simple to write applications for) process easier.

There aren’t many details on the new tool but Palm did give a live demonstration at this year’s Open Mobile Summit. From that it’s known that nothing needs to be installed on the machine you’re developing with (everybody runs in a web browser) and apparently things are all drag-and-droppy.

Anyways I just thought it was something interesting to bring up.
