    Will the 5-6K apps we have work with webOS 2.0? If the developers dont upgrade the code that means, we may be the only platform where apps are actually going down. This brings out the next point, last year it was MOJO, this year it is Enyo, will 2012 or 2014 bring out another new /different way of making apps.

    Will Palm still continue to count apps in app catalog that only works with 1.4.x, even though no hardware is available for 1.4.x?

    Most of them should work with no issues.
    Enyo, on the other hand, would require a code rewrite, but as I've read, they will work under 3.0 in an "emulation mode"

    I'm running 2.0.1 and have no problem running all the apps I had on my Sprint Pre.

    This is what I'm concerned about after reading all the "hate hate hate!!!" threads that are flooding the forums. So the consensus is that webOS 1.4.5 applications will almost all seemlessly work on webOS 2.x devices? If I got a Palm Pre 2 on Verizon, my apps on my Palm Profile would download and work for me?

    It will be just like classics, old apps will work like classic palm OS apps worked in pre minus

    For TouchPad (3.x) it will be more like a small card with an indepent gesture area, for 2.x most apps work with no modifications

    My take is that the only reason they have to run in an emulation window on the TouchPad is due to lack of a gesture area. Again, my opinion, not something from God (or insert deity of choice) to HP to me.

    I wonder if the legacy apps will go classic way, support for a year or two and then no ROM.

    The emulation window was in reference to the TouchPad. Not sure how they will work with the phones.

    I believe the new phones will natively support Mojo apps.

    That's not true.

    It has been discussed many times here that Palm DID lay the groundwork to keep Classic in 2.0. Palm intended to MotionApps to include the ROM in their own app. They needed the extra 10MB of space because 2.0 requires much more space (and the system partition IS limited to just under 500MB, which makes 10MB a BIG difference)

    MotionApps just jumped the gun and made incorrect assumptions without getting all of the facts from their contacts at Palm.

    Most apps will continue to work fine.

    Some apps, however, will need to be redone (at least partially). Nobody can give extensive details yet though, but I know that Palm will inform developers of all of this when the webOS 2.1 SDK goes public (I say 2.1 because that's what Palm announced at the Think Beyond event on Wednesday)
