HP’s Rahul Sood to Developers: webOS Now!

Rahul Sood, CTO of HP’s gaming business, has some pointed words for developers regarding the right time to start developing webOS applications:

So I’m calling out to all game developers. It’s time you followed the money and looked to the future. Opportunity is in scale. Web OS will have tremendous scale and reach.

You might even think about developing titles exclusively for Web OS in the future, but for now perhaps you should look at taking some of your best titles – and don’t think port – think about taking full advantage of our hardware, cameras, sensors, etc. The possibilities are endless – and while it may take time for new devices to start showing up, you can rest assured that the wait will be worth it.

I guess what I’m saying is rather than trying to stand out in a store with millions of apps in front of you, it’s probably a good time to get in while the getting is good on the ground floor. Feel free to contact me personally for the right contact within Palm.

In other words, start right now.
