Default IJS -I Want WebOS 3.0 on duo... - 02-12-2011, 06:12 PM

Well, seeing as HP wants to join the tablet market, It looks like the webOS operating system they bought through engulfing Palm Inc got major upgrades.

In my opinion it is by far the most flexible and adaptive OS out there (not to mention it is also linux born.)

Well here is how I see it:
PALM's SDK had webos 1.4 on a virtual emulator, (a partition that could be used as root on a PC) Evidence here:
webOS up and running on PC hardware | | The #1 Palm Pre and Pixi Community
(required almost no hacking to accomplish)
Granted that is just webos 1.4

Well WebOS 3 is in the works and will be out in the summer semester:
As of 3 days ago:
Skip to 21:20 to see the HP TouchPad with webOS 3.0, Also stay tuned if you want to see a demonstration of it.
See 56:20 to see Dreamworks Opinion for WebOS. (Must see)

So there you have it, Webos3's SDK will be out soon, HP also hints at putting WebOS on their laptops and computers (yes WebOS is that powerful) so yeah.... This is defiantly going on my DUO instead of android.
