    This could still be the same mistake, meaning a "Web based OS" instead of "WebOS based" ... ZTE is as we all know the partner of Mozilla with their Firefox OS which IS a web based OS ...

    But yes, I would like it very much if WebOS would have a new hardwareplatform as home base. I just don't believe it before I see it

    This news comes from Digitimes China web site on a post with more information about Samsung to launch Tizen devices in the near future.

    But in the last line of that post, they say:

    [I]In additional news, China-based ZTE has also recently decided to start developing webOS operating system.

    Brand new article but its my guess they are just quoting the miss information earlier disussed.

    Hillarious question
    ... *looks over the shoulder* ... doesn't seem, that the queue isn't that long. *scrub is blown trough the room, crickets are noisy*


    Strange, there seems to be no one terribly interested, and that after HP spent so much on marketing ... oh wait ... I think that is the part they SHOULD have done ... sorry, my fault.

    SCNR, but you started it with that question.

    IIRC they wanted to release it with openWebOS. As there is no openWebOS out yet (only a betaversion for desktop/Ubuntu and another one for mobile phones but without GUI) I would think it is reasonable to guess, that OpenMobile knows about as much as we do...

    Is this a real product or vaperware? The website looks like a shell and it contains lots of promises to lots of people but no sign of any delivery.

    Until there's a product, it's vaporware. They haven't even held up their commitment to the first platforms they promised their ACL to, so I have no reason to believe webOS is going to get it, either. Furthermore, they claimed a Q3 release and 1) haven't delivered, and 2) aren't responding to webOS users that have been writing in as of late for a status update.

    +1 for evaporating claims. Or maybe it should be -1.

    Is there some kind of webOS similar operating system. I mean a web OS not webOS as we know it ?

    FirefoxOS, but the phones it'll be released on aren't out there yet and both the underlying approach and browser core are fundamentally incompatible with webOS and Webkit despite some people around here saying things to the contrary.

    FirefoxOS uses the WebAPI they've created for their app development approach; it's something they want to standardize with the W3C, in fact.

    Firefox uses the Gecko core, while webOS uses Webkit. Apples and oranges, just like you can't slap a Ford engine in a Chevy and expect it to do anything.

    Pssst.... you CAN slap a Ford engine in a Chevy. You could slap one in a Hundai if you wanted to... Wrong analogy?

    I doubt that will ever happen, but stranger things have happened in the past...

    This is interesting. I saw this today on Google News. Apparently the U.S. House Intelligence committee issued a report Monday that declared ZTE and Huawai as national security threats related to spying on the U.S. And they are recommending banning their products from the U.S. They also recommended against the merger. So i think even if they made a webos phone it wouldn't get in the country. Also people here contemplating the possibility of buying cheap hardware from them to hack open web os onto it may have to look to other possible hardware options.

    Wow this is amazing to hear.. where have I been all of this time? Anything further on this? I've never tried ZTE, but this alone would make me buy one of their devices (regardless if I had to import or not, I'd get it).

    There is a market for more OS, great!

    Erm... Not to spoil the party, but some time ago, everything was made clear that this was simply a mistake: There was an interview with one of these chinese companies boss, who said they were about to make a phone with a web-based os. Somehow, the translator assumed it was webOS. It happens to be Firefox OS.

    Which I consider a poor joke compared to webOS, but who knows, they are supposed to have money.

    Or am I completely wrong on the mistake affair?
