For more efficient energy usage, the LG G2 employs Graphic RAM (GRAM) technology. GRAM reduces the display’s energy use by up to 26 percent on a still frame and increases overall usage time on the device by approximately 10 percent. And with a generous 3,000mAh battery that is thoughtfully designed to take maximum advantage of the interior space, the LG G2 is more than ready for a full day’s work or play.

Don't be so quick to judge, unless you have a personal boycott going against the chipmaker... there's a number of Qualcomm powered devices that do have CyanogenMod support, which can be used as a springboard for porting OwOS. So it depends on each parcticular phone, how much success the XDA devs have with it, etc...

those have support only because of qualcomm's own touchpads that came pre-loaded with their own android system stuffed complete with native android drivers which ended up in the hands of the public then CM devs, thats likely why we have touchpad ports but no pre3 etc.

i believe some of those QComm android touchpads got ebay'd for some large quantities of cash.

Agree tho that we cant just expect a port to any latest and greatest device just because its desirable, the drivers/other issues arent an easy wall to climb.

There are phones like the Oppo Find5 that also make use of the Qualcomm chipset, but have CM... the Touchpad was different, and i'm mostly talking about native Android devices...

i just meant in the case of the qualcomm touchpads that got released into users/devs hands, those were native android which is why people tried to snatch them up for their internal androidy goodness.

Yeah, i understand. I was just trying to be clear, that Qualcomm, or not, the thing to look for in porting targets would be third party ROM support (CM, Paranoid Android, etc)... since the webOS port would be making use of OEM Android drivers and the most important thing is being able to compile the kernel.

So mattmers' aversion to Qualcomm hardware is either on ideological grounds, or he simply misunderstood

So... open webOS is based (or at least the webOS-Ports version) on libHybris, which pretty much means that if it can run ICS, it is likely to be able to run open webOS.

BUT! Someone has to put the energy out to connect the dots. We have a community. If you want it, step up.

I am kind of shocked at some of the responses. I would be thrilled to see open webOS survive on ANY device, so I wouldn't really be picky about lack of keyboard or screen being too big. We're just making conversation here anyway. At some point, you have to realize that there's nothing like Pre 3 on the market and there may never be. Best chance is probably a BB10 slider recreation of the Torch, but that's all speculation still and would have no real chance of running any other OS.

I just thought the combination of a Qualcomm krait CPU/GPU with 2GB RAM, a 13MP camera, and a 3,000mAh battery was pretty compelling. Oh, and it's built by the current 'owners' of webOS.

That's pretty encouraging, thanks! If it hasn't been asked before - does that include radio functionality on CDMA devices, or am I stuck living out my webOS dream on unlocked GSM devices?

If it works on Cyanogenmod or Ubuntu Touch it should theoretically also work from what I understood :-)

Look how open-source-friendly Qualcomm is:
Jean-Baptiste Quéru quits AOSP, Qualcomm legal drama could be to blame

Well, I see that people have figured out why I'm quitting AOSP.

There's no point being the maintainer of an Operating System that can't boot to the home screen on its flagship device (the new Nexus 7) for lack of GPU support, especially when I'm getting the blame for something that I don't have authority to fix myself and that I had anticipated and escalated more than 6 months ahead.
As far as I have read Qualcomm doesn't provide open-source drivers (which is quite normal for Qualcomm), but now they won't even provide binary drivers.

LG should hire this Jean-Baptiste Quéru. Put him on the webOS open source team.

LinkedIn says he's a software engineer at Google, so that seems unlikely. Is it TI that makes the open source friendly OMAP cpus?
