No, if it was figured out, you would have seen it by now. Maybe after it goes FULLY Open Source, scheduled for September.

It is not possible at all. HP touch pad is not compatible even with Android so webOS will not work on any apple or android gadget.

The above post is not necessarily 100% true and correct, since anyone that currently has access to what will be open webOS would be under NDA at this point.

Maybe it was just rumors, but wasn't webOS put on an iPad2 to show that it ran much faster with Apple's hardware than HP's TouchPad? I thought it was done somewhere behind the scenes that contributed to HP's decision to stop sales of the TouchPad.

Someone was able to figue out how to install a dual boot program so you can switch between webOS and Android. Why not a dual boot between webOS and iOS?

I believe this is accurate. One of the Palm folks posted on Twitter in response to a question (can't remember who -- but I think Matt McNulty) that consumers haven't seen anything yet, regarding how good webOS could be, and speaking of putting it on an iPad.

Edit: He may have just been speaking of Enyo, can't remember.

Ah ha HP tested webOS on an iPad. It ran over twice as fast as the TouchPad. - The Next Web
