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.

Don't understand

Sorry if this is a stupid question but it's Monday morning: how is this possible? I thought ARM Snapdragon has a different instruction set to Intel Pentium?

How can you run a ROM image from an ARM processor on an Intel Pentium without an emulator?

Ok it it's Monday ;) On re-reading, I understand that they used the image from the virutal machine...
