webOS Twitter app Carbon coming to Windows Phone and Android

For the few lucky users who used Carbon on their Palm Pre or Pre 2, you’ll appreciate this little bit of news. One of the best Twitter apps on that now-defunct platform is slowly making its way to Android and Windows Phone.

dots & lines, the studio behind the original webOS app, has stated that due to the improvements made to the various SDKs in Android 4.0, they are branching out their existing Windows Phone direction and releasing their much-loved app on both platforms.

According to an email exchanged with the folks at Android Central, Carbon’s UX director Saleh Esmaeili claims:

“It was a little daunting when we first looked at Android SDKs and the lack of fluid UI design in the past, all changes with ICS. We can now benefit from animations and transitions along with lots of UI elements that can make designing a good experience possible on Android.”

Well count us excited. The app is only in its planning phase right now, so the Windows Phone version should reach the market first. Either way, we’re glad to know the fine folks behind Carbon are not slowing down.
