PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless There are a lot of WebOS fans out there who regret this remarkable operating system got shelved by HP just as Android was swooping in to win the hearts and minds of developers. Is there still hope? WebOSNation reports they've got it running on Google hardware. Surely a little competition for Android isn't a bad thing?

Something to keep in mind

Keep in mind that open webos is at the hardware enablement stage and is very feature incomplete after what proprietary things were stripped out.

Here's a list of what's missing:

What webos really needs(apart from hardware to run) is synergy services for google, yahoo, and the like to sync contacts calendar and mail. Without it, webos is very isolated from the web.
