WebOS Resurrected On Android Devices

Trent Nouveau | TG Daily | October 1, 2012

Hewlett Packard (HP) may have effectively walked away from its (Palm) webOS platform, but the open source OS is finding a new life on Android hardware.

Indeed, an early build of Open webOS 1.0 was recently spotted running on the Samsung Galaxy Nexus smartphone and now a developer by the name of Steven Troughton-Smith is working on a port of Open webOS for the popular Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime tablet.
Obviously, both of the above-mentioned devices ship with Google Android as the default operating system.

However, as Liliputing's Brad Linder points out, the OS can be replaced with alternate software on either the handset or tablet - if you unlock the bootloader.
