I have a concept on paper (file) and when the time is right I will let people know and I will need help from engineering people as well. Once webOS goes Open we will not more as I also have some ides that could or maybe can't be implemented.

I am willing to finance my proto by myself.

Ok, So there is another interesting discussion going on in the Web OS General Discussions area called: WebOS Business Opportunities after Fall 2012.

The person whom made the discussion seems to have already begun making up a business plan/model & has already started to seek out investors.

The next step is a critical stage where I have brought up taking this topic outside of webOS and into a google group-documents & through email. This way we can all be completely on top of each topic. Not only should we all be emailing each other every day but we should be having multiple video conferences & chats so we can begin constructing a road map to deliver a cell phone by the Fall of 2012.

I feel there are plenty of talented people here on this site that are willing to put in a few hours a week to make something like this possible. So, I recommend everyone that is interested in a WebOS device of the future whom is willing to contribute in some way Email member: Lawrence92

If you are one of those that don't believe this is possible and only want to talk down of the idea.. You aren't being any help. I instead ask you to find a way to find a way past the roadblocks you say are to strong to pass.

Hi everyone and thanks Zukny for introducing me in others discussion.

I will be starting a googles group on the recommendation of other members here who ask me to do so.

i believe WebOS is the next generation OS but it need improvement and a Vision.

This is what i have been working on and i am showing at the moment to investors as well as HP board.

I am so happy to see the community react well to this and want to be a part of it.

For those of you who think i am working on giving the community just a phone. i will disappoint you because i believe we can do better than that.

As my ideas are not patent, i can't reveal most of it and i 'm sorry for that. But i have been looking over a lot of discussion and i will be happy to work with people that think that we can provide something else and better for human kind.
We are facing Apple (closed environment)& google (lost privacy & security environment), there is a place for another major actor supported by some manufacturer brand.

In order to get those manufacturer we need to show them a vision & a way to make this market powerfull.

Trying to work on a proof of concept phone is right but working only a phone is wrong. Taking the whole picture, facing what the competitor mades wrong, and we will provide a whole new experience.

I am searching for dev, tech, all people that can help somewhere on WebOS.
Zukny, i have also some work for you ASAP i would love to have beautiful interpretation of my mind using your 3D skills

If you think you want to be part of this new revolution, contact me, give me a summary of your skills and i will provide you with an access to the group.
Some of you might have to sign NDA but i think most of the discussion will be open to the members.

best

S.M

Hi Minipot

You couldn't sell me a WebOS at this stage also. Most of the failure of WebOS i believe is not so much about the hard and the soft. The first official explanation was that it needed a 3 years plan and HP with leo decided to run it in 9 months but i also think the failure was that WebOS did not provide any different experience to the User.

I am an apple user and was an mac addict before, making all my friend but also businesses i was working in switch to mac.
I've always liked WebOS from the beginning, wishing plenty of success because i believed i would probably switch on it if i was disappoint by apple or if that was a real revolution.

It comes to a end, it is a powerful and underestimated platform but she does not provide any different experience. she does not fill the gap people are waiting for.
The platform, the architecture of WebOS is according to me is the smartest one as she offer a different approach and open new possibilities.Enyo & Synergy are likely to be the best add value to the platform but we can make better than that.

I am working on the google group and all people who want to share about webos are invited.

this is the first time i open a group on google and it does not seem to offer plainly of possibility, i maybe plan to install projectfork on a server. still working on it.

As soon as i have you email and the site is finish i will sent you an invitation.

Best

S.M.

maybe they moved it. Long story short. The guy said he made a phone then he got asked for evidence, he wouldn't provide any, finally showed a video that was amazingly dark, Derek started asking questions, a lot of people began to not believe the post eventually the guy stopped posting.

Interspersed where people either saying it's true, it's not true or, I like the phone, I won't buy a phone that size, and the plan is unrealistic. That's the gist of it. Basically the dude got caught making ups stuff and got caught.
