PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Last week, I promised you an outline of the webOS governance model. Today, we're publishing that model and announcing the leaders of the Project Management Committees. As you will see below, we've based the model on the Apache Way." Open governance, something Android decidedly lacks. Too bad nobody (with money and factories) seems to give a toss about webOS. The world's an unfair place.

Will we see WebOS devices shipping end of 2012?
Some Chinese companies maybe?

Did some digging and some think HP will release WebOS devices in 2013 again. Probably old news to some.

Why wait till 2013? Is there predictions that hardware will be price then to profitably sell WebOS devices in 2013 at that magic $200 range where it selled like hotcakes.
Me thinks they are working towards shipping WebOS devices from that same assembly line they plan to use for Windows 8 Arm devices in 2013.

Well, certain parts are proprietary and are being replaced with open source parts. Other parts are pushed upstream and Enyo seems to have been partly rewriten or something.

Their plan is here:

Yes, now that you mention it that probably is the biggest most laborious factor. Getting the proprietory code out.
