Everyone loves the OS, but it was beaten out by the wide adoption of Android.
The whole reason HP bought palm was for the patent portfolio and the WebOS. Before the HP buyout, palm had release the palm pre, pre plus, pixi, pixi plus, and the pre 2 featuring WebOS.
I still have my modded pre plus for Sprint, as backup. (pre plus was never release on Sprint, for the record.)
I hope this open source move will spur for innovation with the software.
Another interesting development from HP for the tablet that won't die!
I am curious if the WebOS was part of PALM when HP bought them out last year? Still, it is not often that a company gives away a potentially valuable piece of software. Maybe HP wants to see if others can make something out of technology they could not. If anyone picks this up and uses it for something good, I would be interested in hearing what they made and how easy WebOS was to use. There could be hidden value in the software.
