    Oppo is a supurb DVD/BluRay company that in now entering the smartphone world. If their phones are anything like their other products we have a lot to celebrate. Jump on the Oppo forums and rally for WebOs!

    Oh my...

    That's an eye-pleasing piece of hardware

    Most people who know me here would remember me as the only person not impressed with the Samsung Galaxy III (and having a "meh" reaction to large slab phones in general), but the Find 5, i would love to check it out in person...

    Love the design (reminds me a little of my LG VX8700 flip phone ...which was Verizon's "variant" of the LG Shine) and the buttonless "gesture area".. It would indeed be a beautiful new body for openwebOS if a port could be put together without much difficulty.....

    In any case, it'll be keeping an eye on it as the first adopters start filling in the less idealized picture of what it really is...

    chances are, the'd be much too smug to release a dedicated webOS device or to even talk to us of the idea, but on the other hand, they would definitely be a good partner to work with for a custom-order dual-boot variant of one of their phones... if we approach them right

    These guys are high-end and not "hole in the wall" enough to agree to somebody else's terms, so it would be a good gesture on their part to work with webOS homebrew, but not their obligation. Unfortunately we are still "small fish"

    On the other hand, i think there's a possibility of a "kernel compromise", where a build of openwebOS could be downgraded to a slightly older (mixed?) kernel, and since Find 5 runs JellyBean (4.1), that's a newer kernel than some of the earlier Android builds... this way we could adapt to some of the existing drivers and only have to reverse-engineer some stuff. Not ideal, but bearable i think. OpenwebOS is still "open" enough to modify it to run with whatever driver "binary blobs" are be available.

    This isn't my area of expertise, but there's still room to cut corners and have a working device...
