Palm has unveiled its plans for the WebOS developer program, which is scheduled to officially launch in December. It will enable third-party developers to broadly distribute their own software applications for Palm's Linux-based mobile platform.

Palm's WebOS application platform takes advantage of standards-based Web technologies, making it possible for developers to build complete applications with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Underlying device functionality is exposed through specialized JavaScript APIs and HTML 5 features are used to support graphics programming and video capabilities. This model lowers the barrier to entry and allows Web developers to transfer their existing skills to the WebOS platform.
