HP is retaining support responsibility for current webOS devices, so... No, you will not.

They're probably for the last webOS device to die

WebOS is so clearly superior as a smartphone OS that I hope some wider exposure from LC (even on TV) may give it a wider audience
a real tragedy presided by HP

I've been using LG mobile device for last 15 months, LG Optimus 3D. LG is really bad in regards of supporting their own devices. All their android handsets (apart from Nexus 4 - but that's LG oem) where promised updates at some stage which were never filled.

That is a common problem among Android manufacturers with high quantity of headset models. They can keep focus on small group of devices while rest of their headsets are neglected.

Then why did LG say "we will continue to support Palm users"? Sounds like a lie from LG to me then...

LG bought source code... That's Legacy. You don't buy Open Source, you just use it and contribute back to it. Or fork it off and run proprietary after you build up some independent code.

So there is something in Legacy that LG needs to complete their vision of a smart TV.

They own Legacy webOS, right?

Their TV will need Apps. I'm sure they see a revenue stream in placing new Apps in HP's App Cat (HP still owns/controls that) maybe for 3.x at least.

Who knows?

If there is any filter down from LG projects to Legacy devices that would be a) very good news for us and b) very smart of them as it brings current users into the LG camp and builds brand loyalty.

I would guess they plan Apps that will be backward compatible with Legacy, but would not expect any OTA updates to any Legacy Hardware OS from LG...

LG owns legacy webOS and the more-proprietary Open webOS Professional Edition that HP/Gram was working on, as well as stewardship of the Open webOS and Enyo open source projects.
