Pandora on developing for webOS

Palminfocenter has posted an interesting interview with Pandora about developing the Pandora software for webOS.  He expands on the advantages and disadvantages of developing phone apps using web languages:

I think that there is a bit of a trade-off there, in fact I think when they first told us about their approach I was sceptical that you would be able as a developer to get a really great user experience with fluid presentation just using HTML/Javascript/CSS and so on in the Mojo framework... but I think for a certain class of application – when you think about an email application, or the contacts application, or something like Google Maps or Pandora – I think all of these classes of applications are really going to be fantastic to build and deliver on webOS. Anything like a medical encyclopaedia – anything sort of data and presentation-oriented I think will be very very easy to develop and have fantastic user experience characteristics. Even for multimedia applications like Pandora.

He also gushes on the greatness of the Pre hardware.  A nice little inside look from one of the only companies so far to have developed with the mojo toolkit.
