    I was wondering if some of you folks lives in Las Vegas. I don`t see Derek around at all. Is he still working for Mobile Nations???

    I sent him an e-mail to the webosnation Inbox offering to volunteer to write about these LG webOS matters, but not answer at all ????? He usually answered before emails. That is why I am concerned about his job.

    But akitayo, if you're serious about your resolution, we'll take you - especially if you're going to CES!

    As someone else mentioned, that's the UI definition "must be usable from 10 feet away".

    I think that the only qwerty phones left in the Android world are Sprint specific, and I think that the last few people at Sprint demanding keyboard phones are no longer there, so I think we're going to see the keyboard phones completely disappear off the face of the planet over the next couple years. I could be wrong on that, though.

    Imagine if you took a TouchPad, inflated it to 30 inches plus, and then tried to control that interface using a standard TV remote from 10 feet away. You'd hate it.

    He didn’t elaborate on the features of the operating system, but said it would retain the “cards” system, or a stack of pop-ups that allows users to navigate multiple applications, originally used in the webOS mobile devices launched by H-P.

    The person didn’t comment on the company’s plans to market the webOS-powered TVs but said the operating system may be developed and later adopted for LG’s other consumer electronics, including smartphones.

    LG, the world’s second-largest TV market after Samsung Electronics Co., has been busy churning out new premium TV models this year to spark interest in a segment that accounts for nearly 40% of its revenue. The company is also set to showcase a whopping 105-inch curved-screen television at CES, with a similar model expected from Samsung..."

    panty-wetter for sure! I am so excited for the prospect of new hardware since I still have the original Sprint Pre and its about to turn to dust in my hands from all the wear and tear

    Well LG is certainly laying low on this product,

    The only links I can find so far are the WSJ and the Korean version of CNET (no new information).

    The blog for the open webos site linked on the lgsvl website has not been updated since early last year and the enyo site similarly does not look that up to date.

    I really hope LG has done a good job on the product and does a good job on the publicity with refreshed websites.

    Actually it's on Verizon... the LG Enact, that just came out. Cousin model which will become the F3Q on T-Mobile.
    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLIÉ T650C -> Sony TJ-37 -> Palm TX -> Palm Centro -> Palm Pre Bell -> Palm Pre Plus Bell/Verizon Hybrid -> HP Veer -> HP Pre 3 NA -> BlackBerry Classic -> BlackBerry Priv

    It's a Late Goodbye, such a Late Goodbye.

    Yes, LG has kept a very low profile and the enyo/Lg open webos team has clearly been kept silent on their projects until recently. Wonder if Derek and Dieter will get to do a reunion interview at CES? Of course, they work at different blogs now. I'm looking forward to hearing something really positive.

    LG is now tipping its hand on importance of webOS--see this thread

    A stranger at the MRT here in Manila once asked me about my HP Veer. He must have seen me swiping cards on this tiny gadget that he couldn't help asking what kind of phone it was.

    I gave him a brief webOS intro and demo and explained that since HP already canceled it, we in the Philippines could only buy it online or with help from friends and relatives in the US.

    Meanwhile, a co-worker got interested in buying one after seeing how small it is and how cool the Touchstone is.

    Not many people were given the chance to experience webOS' Synergy, multitasking cards, Touchstone, gestures, and unobtrusive notifications. I hope it will be successful on smart TVs and that LG will give it another chance on smartphones.

    what is encouraging is that LG has given this a lot of thought and they have been working on home communication devices since at least 2006 meaning they have the resources to think long term unlike US companies which have to exist quarter to quarter.

    If LG succeeds here, this could be big. And would it be the first time that a non-US software company has such a big stake in the living room?

    Don't forget, LG purchased legacy code. I doubt a new smartphone from them which utilizes webOS would be from the open source fork.

    Nah, some people on here already convinced me earlier on that LG wouldn't build a webOS phone so I'm sticking to that because they were 200% sure about it.

    Your people may have been right a year ago but LG's plans could have developed more as the tv took shape and all their other alliances started coming together (see my other thread: http://forums.webosnation.com/open-w...e-control.html).

    Apparently there is an LG press conference on Monday so we shall hear more then.

    In any case: if the phones are gonna run a webOS that looks like or similiar to the webOS on that leaked TV image, I ain't buying any of their webOS phones. I don't mind a redesign, but I do mind a redesign that diminishes the whole concept webOS was built on.
    (Eel would've been a terrific redesign by Palm though!)

    To be fair, that leaked image is only one static shot. You've not seen the UI in action. And it's a "leaked image" which may or may not have any resemblance to reality.

    Prejudge much???

    Why not hold off until the LG presentation at CES and see what the real deal is???

    I think that what works on handheld things is not at all what works on giant displays that are feet away from you, and vice versa.
