This is a tad off topic for this blog, as it does not directly relate to Python, but rather web developers in general.
Do you recall WebOS and it's promise? It was suppose to make app development, much like developing any website. The only problem, is that it did not support server-side languages, and apps were downloaded to the device. Furthermore, the API to talk to the hardware was non-standard, and apps would only work on WebOS and not be cross-platform.
I hope this is successful, as this will allow me to program apps for a smartphone using Python, and still be-able to take advantage of powerful technologies, like OpenGL graphics, sound, and persistent storage on the device. Python on the server-side that is, however Pyjamas may support B2G in future versions, if it becomes successful.
As a Python developer, are you interested in this type of technology and would this make you develop apps for smartphones?
There has indeed been strides in smartphones and Python, especially with Kivy being recently ported to Android.
