Pre Rumors: Palm to release webOS 1.2 next week; paid App Catalog coming September 24thAaron Baker - Editor-in-Chief
In this industry, it's all about rumors, and thanks to information obtained by PreCentral, webOS is in the spotlight today. Reports of a paid App Catalog have been circulating for some time now, and thanks to a tipster, September 24th looks like the date to mark on the calendar. Through the new option, you'll be able to give your credit card information to Palm directly, rather than individual vendors. As if that wasn't good enough, tips are also pouring in about webOS 1.2 landing sometime next week (which, as I previously reported, was accidentally leaked - and subsequently pulled the same day).
From my standpoint, I see the entry of paid apps into the App Catalog as a positive sign of growth, but I'd love to hear from you - is it a sign of good things to come, or yet another way to dent your change purse?
