A resurgent Palm continues its efforts to take on its competitor Apple

After seeing its once strong position in the PDA/smart phone market crumble, a strong launch for the Pre is a must for Palm if it wants to challenge Apple. Today at San Francisco’s Web 2.0 expo, Palm announced an important move to help set up such a launch — an early release of its “Mojo” software development kit for webOS.

General availability of the Mojo SDK is scheduled for sometime next year, but developers can apply to get an early build. Michael Abbott, senior vice president, Application Software and Services, Palm, Inc., enthusiastically describes, “Developers are an incredibly important part of the webOS ecosystem, and we’re eager to get the SDK into their hands. Now that the SDK will be available to a broader base of developers, we think the enthusiasm for webOS will only grow and accelerate. We’re very excited to work with developers to make this unique development environment even better.”
