This is big news, because WebOS is supposed to be their big SDK, and it's all based on WebKit. This means their JavaScript engine will probably be JavaScriptCore (with the enhancements from the SquirrelFish project).


I'm dying to see a video of this in motion. Their new developer platform appears to be very similar to Dashboard on the Mac; apps are written with CSS, HTML, XML, and presumably JavaScript.


Google's iPhone app has some hidden features. The coolest of all is the live waveform while speaking into the microphone, although the most useful is the ability to open links from within the app itself.

The UI they use to enable the more advanced features is pretty intuitive, too. Just keep scrolling up, and the "Bells and Whistles" row will eventually appear.
