PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Heck yes. This is one fine way to toast the weekend, ain't it? HP has just announced it's going to release webOS under an open source license. While the company will cease making hardware for the platform for now, it will continue development on it together with the open source community. Hey Access, you listening? Update: More good news: HP's CEO just told The Verge that HP will be putting webOS on hardware after all - tablets!

Just like Samsung and HTC have found they'll be targets for the Apple patent trolls. While I support patents, how about doing some prior art research first Apple?

I couldn't be happier for WebOS, a more seamless mobile Linux than Android. Very smooth, tasteful, pretty and functional.

Are there places for improvement - yes.
Is it perfect - no, but after using it for a day (and Android for over a year) I can see its a great platform to start from.

HOORAY. Meg is my new hero.
