They have been extremely kind to the open source community, and have provided everything you need in order to build the port for the Galaxy Nexus." I would be so delighted if it is ported to the Galaxy SII.

I hope it's not sluggish as it was on the last video i saw. The port they shown some days ago was a pain in the ass...

Yeah, but that was an early alpha with no hardware acceleration. Really it was more a proof of concept rather than a working demo.

So things should / will get better as the project matures.

webOS runs really nicely on the Pre 3. If webOS in general ran like it did in the video, theres no way I would still use it as my only phone ;)

I'm sure it'll improve.
