PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless And here's to the good stuff. When HP bought Palm a few weeks ago, the computer giant made it very clear they are going to put the webOS on a tablet, and maybe even on a netbook. While it has never been a secret that the webOS actually runs just fine on x86, nobody ever tried to actually boot it on real hardware. Until now, that is - and it works, without any modifications.

But ARM based cpu's like tegra 2 offer all the performance we could need on a tablet at much greater energy efficiency; you can never have to much battery life.

I use android, and would love a tablet that runs android on good tegra based hardware in a 10 inch form factor. (the ICD gemini looks good having a more proper screen resolution rather than 1024x600) I can't help but feel that webOS just seems to be perfectly suited for larger tablet style computers. It has a good flow to it and any tablet running webOS with the specs I mentioned has a good chance of getting my money.
