    I could see a very good reason to port OPEN webOS for use on a Pantech Element.

    It's 7" like the Touchpad GO. Its a 4G LTE tablet device, plus its also waterproof and submersible in case it slips out of your hands while you're relaxing in the jacuzzi.

    I'm sure he means open webOS...anything else would be quite naughty.

    I don't think I'd want to test that theory -- unless Pantech has seriously upped their QC, their phones that I've looked at feel like they are so cheap they'll crumble to bits in your hand if you hold too tight

    +1, I would love to see that happening on Phones too. Shockproof waterproof features will be another area for most OEMS to explore before Apple shows them how to do it,

    Sanyo made at least one model for Sprint that was a CDMA PTT, shockproof and water reisistant. They might've sold a few of them had they not been PlaySkool Blue colored.

    Glad to see I'm not the only one that hates that! Why do manufacturers think that if you want a device that can deal with the splashes and bumps that come from using it in outdoor activities then automatically it should be neon orange or some color like that? After you take it on that weekend camping trip you're still going to have to take it into a meeting on Monday morning for goodness sake...

    There was this disturbing trend that anything that was built for "Sports" was either PlaySkool Blue or School Bus Yellow. yuck.

    Speaking of rugged and/or water resistant/proof smartphones, Casio has the Commando...and they may be coming out with a G'Shock style I think. I noticed a thread over @ the Android side of te house about it. I am looking for a ruggedized phone...but if it has to be Android, I at least want Ice Cream Sandwich on it. Casio so far has Gingerbread.

    I never knew about this Sanyo. But it looks like a beast. I

    How hard it is to make a tough smart phone ? I see the screens cracking and cases breaking for many phones. Its about time someone makes a good looking tough phone.

    Yup,

    Canon makes a tough camera the D10 , which was blue and then they followed it up with a D 20 , another ugly looking one.

    I heard the battery life on that is bad. I am waiting for casio to make great looking rugged phone with good battery life. I think Casio is the only once at this point ahead of everyone.

    There's also the Caterpillar B-10.



    Doesn't look too exciting to me. I think I would still prefer the Casio Commando.

    I'm hopeful that with HP releasing more technology and moving towards a standard Linux foundation that Android uses...it will become easier for those with know how to port webOS to Droid, Pantech, Samsung and otherwise. Would love to see webOS on my Droid Bionic!

    Android ICS Gummy build for the Bionic is nice, but wow I sure miss webOS' interface and simplicity! Sorli...

    they need to mass market water-resistance
    or apple will come out with the first water-resistant phone
