I don't see they say that they're picking devices to work on porting open webOS from this tweet. I only see they say that they wonder which devices will be available to run open webOS...

Here's the quick Wiki post from the webOS Internals team announcing their direction with this:

That's a list of devices modded for touchstones...

The link above is a note announcing: "Moving forward to well-documented mobile devices with
readily available hardware drivers using the Open webOS 1.0 release."

I'd think that part in parcel in looking for future hardware is to look (ideally) for those that can also be adapted to TouchStone use (not a necessity - but a feature).

The intersection of those two sets is not empty, but is also not equivalent to the union of those two sets (or either one of the two sets in fact).

Who was that masked man? Gottlob Frege?

I thought about math, and how much I would not want to repeat those courses.

Baby-making would be my psych interpretation of the above.

understood from the inquiry posed in the tweet as one of the likely possibilities and appreciate your added clarification. If I read it correctly, you are not only adding that not all the devices listed in the tweet are being chosen for open webos but also that one or more of the open webos devices are not modded by your group to also include touchstone compatibility. OK to wait to hear all details, its enough now to know we have some hardware choices to look forward to and arenot confined to reading front page stories about planned hardware which was never releasex.

Kinda waiting on a definitive statement about ports before buying a new handset, honestly.

And that is exactly the reason why such statements are not being made.

Until Open webOS is actually released, and attempts at porting it are made, we have no way of knowing whether such ports will be successful or not.

So we don't want people making purchasing decisions based on what can only be purely speculative statements at this point in time.

I ran across one of those throwaway ink jet printers on Taobao. It's an HP Deskjet running webOS and must have been a prototype. Problem is the cost of shipping it to the USA is more than its worth since its description claims its prone to paper jams and its ink jets are clogged with dried up ink. ...

So long as it heats up enough to toast bread it would be worth it.

You should consider porting it to a device most people already own, the PC. The WebOS community would experience a population explosion providing resources and support for future development.

PC would probably be easier to work on (open source drivers and such), but what about the interface? It's all touch driven, so scrollers and other elements would have to be added, plus higher DPI interfaces that doesn't look out of place. Not sure if considering interface work if making a PC build would be faster than a mobile build.

Do we know if the 3.3 kernel for Open webOS will only work on ARM architecture only or will it also work on x86?

The linux kernel is compiled, if one alters the makefile it can be compiled to that modification...

So yes it can be compiled to any chip set provided one alters the configuration.

I would consider buying a TouchSmart PC for my office if this actually happened... Still would be a great OS for an Auto-PC

Bottom line: When you tell me what device(s) it will work on, I will be going to great lengths to get one and put webOS on it. Just help a simple guy by making it not too hard to do... :-)
