webOS is not dead! HP have decided to keep webOS around and will leverage open source to develop it and then license it for any interested parties. This all sounds good and all, but does HP really know what it means to open source an OS? They may be thinking that they’ll get development for webOS done for free and then turn around and license it to manufacturers. I doubt that’s what is going to happen. But if done right, this could be a revolution in mobile operating systems, watch out Google, they are aiming for Android. Personally, I like webOS, it’s much more polished than Android.
