Palm drops its app developer fee
Previously, app developers had to pay $50 to have the honor of seeing if Palm wanted to accept their apps. Neither the iPhone nor Android platforms have such fees. As Palm's share in the smartphone market has declined steadily, iPhone and Android have climbed.
Both of the latter have extremely healthy app stores (particularly iPhone) and if a developer is going to have to pay a fee to be considered for inclusion in a declining platform or submit for free to the two biggest smartphone platforms out there.
Though Hewlett-Packard has indicated it's not interested in making the Palm a major player in the smartphone market again, this would seem to be a move in that direction. Or, at least, treading water.
