Android isn’t the only mobile OS to get a new kit for developers to create some brilliant new apps with, as Palm also has a new Plug-in development kit (PDK) for its new webOS.
Just as with Android’s native development kit (NDK) companion tool for the Android solutions development kit (SDK), Palm has released this PDK as a component of its webOS SDK. Palm states on their developer site that the new kit empowers app developers to “use C and C++ alongside the web technologies that power the SDK, and even mix them seamlessly within a single application.” PDK also adds new functionality to webOS, which includes better 3D graphics capabilities and according to Palm it also allows game developers that made games for other platforms, to easily move their titles to the webOS platform. 
You can download the PDK (20 MB) from Palm’s developer site.
