I got pretty excited about the iPhone,
and even more about the openness of Android and the G1, and then I
learn that the Palm Pre developer platform is basically just the open
Just after the mobile buzz at Web Directions North and the TAG declared victory on how to build The Self-Describing Web with URI-based Extensibility , I get some details on how Palm is building on the open web platform:
A widget is declared within your HTML as an empty div with an x-mojo-element attribute.<div x-mojo-element="ToggleButton" id="my-toggle"></div>
Oh great; x- tokens… aren’t those passe by now?
Anybody know how frozen the Palm design is? Or if they looked at ARIA, data-* or URI-based namespaces?
