PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Another batch of open source webOS components released - but there's some bad news. "For Open webOS we are aiming for support on future hardware platforms where SoC's support Linux 3.3+ kernel and where open source replacements for proprietary components are integrated. Existing devices cannot be supported because of those many proprietary components, including graphics, networking and lack of drivers for a modern kernel (but of course, there is the Community Edition for those interested in improving the TouchPad)." So, which future hardware platforms? They must have something in mind, right?

While my first preference would be for a Jolla MeeGo device (which I consider a real computer), this would probably be my second choice when my beloved N900 finally dies. I'll settle for Android, though, if neither comes through with an attractive product.


Amen to that. My N900 is still kicking, though for how much longer I don't know, and while I'll take Android over iOS or WP7 any day, I'm really hoping for something more interesting from Jolla or whatever these guys have up their sleeve.
