Welcome, Jon!

Just a quick note that we have today welcomed Jon Hjelle from Louisiana, USA, in our team. Jon completes our development team as engineer for Palm OS and Windows Phone 7. Jon started his career on the Sinclair ZX Spectrum and TRS-80 and will bring in all his deep long-term knowledge of legacy operating systems to the long-promised Palm OS conduit and the new Windows Phone 7 client.

Welcome to DEVONtechnologies, Jon!

Addendum: It seems that we overestimated Jon’s ZX Spectrum and TRS-80 BASIC skills and highly underestimated his iOS skills. So after his first day here on April 1st Jon will take over the iOS development instead.

    What, Palm OS and Windows Phone 7? Any love for Android?

    By Palm OS, do you mean HP (formerly Palm) webOS? The operating system, acquired last year when HP bought Palm, is poised to make an enormous impact on the market in the next year. If so, does DEVONtechnologies have plans for webOS (let it be!) If not, you should.

    Really? You are adding even more devices, even though the ones you currently cover don’t work.

    I’m going to have to agree with pat here. Get syncing and the rest of the clients working properly first before adding more devices.

  5. Would love a Spectrum version. The 5 minute install time and the very handy cassette recorder to carry around. Those were great days 🙂
