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!

April fools?

I had to think twice when I read this, wondering if it was one of OSNew's clever april fools pranks. ;)

This is the best news I've heard in a while. Crossing my fingers that in the not-to-distant future I'll be able to put webOS on my BB Playbook.

I also hope that webOS is looked at as a liable alternative to the current desktop environments on Linux.

That's spot on. How much time before x86 port? Intel, how come you didn't see this coming?
