    Pretty interesting article. Everyone always knew hardware pricing would drop low, but those prices are stunning.

    Maybe HP can buy those tablets and resell them for 99 bucks with WebOS on them.

    A good read, thanks for bringing it here, mtiberio...

    Fascinating that the branding is just gone. That is a huge part of price as eluded to in the article. That is more an Eastern philosophy I think. Hard to imagine Western Conglomerates embracing that sort of model.

    very interesting... thanks for sharing
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    You know when I brought this up a couple of months ago, folks here chastised me for it. I was looking for the components to put together a tablet on Google. I noticed that for less than the price of a screen you could get the whole tablet at one of the major Chinese electronics exporters. I mentioned that we did not really need a major hardware maker to adopt open webOS to still enjoy it. We could just install it on one of these cheap tablets. That didn't go over well here...

    Just remember, just because someone or a few someones are vocal, doesn't mean the majority agree with them...

    So, let me get this straight, Open webOS is so ahead of its time that it won't run on any of this new, but cheap hardware coming out of China? Seems like we can have them build us each one and we slap on Open webOS on them and all of webOS Nation will be giddy! Am I right?

    they mention reference design in the article, but I have no idea if it is built around a standard like the raspberry pi or beagle board. As usual, the devils in the drivers...

    While they may be cheaper could be a nice business case to start buying and selling these things.

    Any ideas on which phones and tablets would accept WebOS? Just curious.
    BlackBerry or WebOS!!! NEVER ANDROID!!!
