Palm WebOS Enyo

Finally Palm had outed a new webOS framework called Enyo which promises native hardware acceleration and faster app load times.The new “Enyo” framework is a Javascript app framework with native hardware acceleration with 1 second app load times.

Presented at Palm’s Developer Day, the news about new phones and tablets coming by next year of 2011 will also be flavored with a new webOS version.

The interesting thimg here is that the framework will allow apps in a native scale having the ability to scale into multiple aspect ratios. Think of the native iPhone apps being ported to the iPad without the need or recoding everything to fit a larger screen. There will be a smoother transition between a smaller screen into a larger screen like smartphones going to tablets.

Take a look at the video below.

This is stated to be released by early 2011 (January to April most probably) via developer SDK.
