    How about a Roomba running webOS? Oh wait, Pixar already did that.
    Sent from my slowly diminishing intellect

    I'm just a soul who's intentions are good...oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood!

    Oh please let this happen! Samsung wouldn't mess around. They'd had the OS optimized like no one's business. C'mon Samsung!

    This would be awesome. Too bad they didn't even reference an anonymous source. I could have written that story with the dreams in my head.

    The fastest way to get webOS back to market would be to incorporate webOS features into the Samsung TouchWiz interface they put over Android.

    That would give the UI of webOS with all the apps and speed of Android.

    HTC and Samsung need a way to better differentiate themselves now that Google bought Motorola.

    I disagree... one thing is one thing, other thing is other thing...

    In the end, continue in Googlerola's hands...

    What makes webOS special is Matias Duarte's User Interface layer on top.

    Android's optimized and compiled code has been faster in our tests doing the same everyday tasks on the same speed processor. Interpreted code like webOS is at a disadvantage against compiled code.

    Overlaying Cards, gestures, and other webOS features as a UI skin on top of Android give you the beauty of webOS with the speed and apps of Android. Instead of Touch-To-Share, we would get the full Near Field Communication standards and USB Host (USB On the Go). The webOS UI on Android seems to be the best of both worlds.

    Three things complicate this.

    First, Samsung already licensed 74 foundational Palm patents on March 7, 2011.

    Second, Samsung makes the 720p 4.5" Nexus Prime due in October, the first ICS phone. Duarte has said that ICS is where he will take his UI to the next level bringing in the Honeycomb cards plus the rest of his ideas. So Samsung would know if webOS will add value.

    Third, two weeks ago, Thisismynext reported that Samsung hires CyanogenMod founder Steve Kondik. As PreCentral reported, Cyanogen has already added gestures, etc. to their own Android ROM.

    Does the fact that Samsung already has the Palm patents make webOS more or less attractive? Is Ice Cream Sandwich the next level of Duarte's UI? Why did Samsung hire Cyanogen's chief architect?

    Samsung already knows all these answer. We will too in a few weeks.

    I agree but to some people on this site it's like saying:

    Once you have the webos patents and 200-300 highly skilled OS engineers (the other 200-300 are hardware engineers) --- and you are as big as Samsung --- you can fork Android.

    Just look at the history of Palm itself --- they bought BeOS --- ditched the OS itself but kept the OS engineers.

    The webos patents and the software engineers are more valuable than the webos source code itself.

    Few weeks before that Samsung approached François Simond (supercurio), creator of Voodoo lagfix, Voodoo sound fix and Voodoo control plus. Lagfix is utility for repartitioning system-data-cache partitions from rfs to more advanced ext# filesystems. But his masterpiece is Voodoo control plus app for Wolfson audio codec improvements. Guy managed to boost audio on GalaxyS, and some other devices with same codec above Ipod/Ipad levels. I've asked him to check Touchpad but he politely said no (maybe now when Android porting is on its way to Touchpad).
    I can only guess Samsung is ready to battle not only Apple, but HTC and moreover Moto-Google.
    I don't know is there a room for webOS in Samsung's plans, but it would be great to see Samsung powered webOS device, armed with some real weapons.
