PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless The WebOS team has released the code of a "community edition" of the operating system, a development base to get to the Open WebOS image due for September. Also, a WebOS ports team has been set up "to support Open webOS 1.0 on well-documented mobile devices with readily available hardware drivers". Let's hope they are targeting some good Android phones.

"Open webOS 1.0 on well-documented mobile devices with readily available hardware drivers." - I'd like to hear what device do they mean here...

...and a curious question will be "Will the Nexus 7 be one of them?", or will Google hold it tight to the vest as well.

Before Meego was killed, Intel released some Atom-based development platform with a phone form factor. Perhaps that's what they were thinking of.

I can't think of a single ARM SoC in widespread use that matches these criteria.

Sadly it will most likely die, as I don't see any hardware vendor picking it up.
