It looks like Epocrates beta is available for the Palm webOS platform. Check out the video below to get the gist for the look and feel of the app.
Unfortunately Palm and the webOS donâ€™t appear to have a good long-term prognosis in the smartphone arena. Iâ€™ve been reading various reports that Palm may be on its way out secondary to the iPhone, BlackBerry and newer android devices. Thatâ€™s really too bad. Iâ€™ve been a big fan of the Palm operating system since its inception back in the 1990â€™s. In fact, I would be using a Palm Pre today if it would have been available through Verizon when I purchased my DROID.
Iâ€™d love to talk with someone at Palm about building an 8-10â€ slate tablet device running webOS. The simplicity of the operating system and the ability to really have multiple applications open at once is very appealing. Consider that you can also run legacy Palm OS software on webOS-based devices via emulator software like Classic from Motionapps, and you really have something to like. I fear that this is only a dream, however, as I havenâ€™t heard a peep about anything from Palm even remotely resembling a tablet device.
So, Palm, if you ever feel the need to build a tablet device please give me a call. I have some ideas for you.
