PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless The announcement says: "The Beta release is comprised of 54 webOS components available as opensource. This brings over 450,000 lines of code released under the Apache 2.0 license, which is one of the most liberal and accepted in the open source community." Now it's time to get this stuff up and running on modern devices. I suggest the Galaxy SII. Not out of self-interest or anything, by the way.

As far as I know, if it run Linux it can run WebOS, if your tablet can run Linux, then go ahead and install it.

As for the GS2/GS3/GNexus, the issue is Xorg. Android use its own graphic layer. The solutions are to run X in android graphic layer (a la Mac OS X) or wait for the OSS drivers to be mature enough. The last solution may be Qt for Android, but once there, it will still probably take quite a lot of effort to go the last mile and make WebOS run on top of it.
