Open webOS DOES have it's advantages over Android also because it hasn't been adopted yet by any player as far as we know. Developmemt can go quickly (updating to QT5/WebKit 2), open standards, newer kernel. Trying to use as much open source as possible. It DOES offer possibilities but there are still a large number of hurdles to take... If now only manufacturers would release PROPER open source drivers and source code instead of binary blobs we could see a lot more devices getting Open webOS. Currently this seems to be the limiting factor because most manufacturers only release binary blobs which are compatible with Android ICS, JB etc but are still far behind with regards to kernel (3.0 v.s. 3.3+) for Open webOS
