    I donít know about Sonyís manufacturing skills, but I would also be interested, especially because NXT series also has phones with small screens! Open webOS just started, so I donít expect positive answer on this soon Ö but hopes are high :-)
    webOS is simply fabulous

    Pretty sure Sony locks down their bootloaders (company wide policy), but I could be wrong on that...

    We know for certain they are hard core about the Playstation line, can't imagine they would have a different policy for mobile.
    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)...

    no, sorry. sony is more open than people are talking about.

    have a look at
    Unlocking the boot loader | Sony Xperia

    the only requirement fo unlock the bootloader is, it must be a unbranded phone.

    i hope webos will booting sometimes on my xperia mini pro. my touchpad 4g feels so lonely since my veer pre2 has gone...

    No Sony is horrible. I took a look at your link and their claim to being open. They only allow you to unlock the bootloader on certain phones with no way to revert your phone back to its original state. Meaning it is a one way road full of risk. If you mess something up there is no way to restart from scratch. They do not support openness at all they just sometimes allow it.

    one of the answer is "Pretty sure Sony locks down their bootloaders (company wide policy), but I could be wrong on that.." and i just said no sorry. i dont get it why you try to blame because of sonys general behavior... are you some kind of "open" police officer?

    Having looked at the link, it's certainly possible. May be worth keeping an eye on XDA to see how far they get along with it as then you can gauge when/if it may be possible to go ahead with porting attempts.

    As for Drahgon's comments, unlocking of the bootloader tends to void warranty regardless, Sony are just being very honest about what may happen, it just means "You may brick your phone and if we can recover it for you, it may not be cheap". So don't be disheartened just yet.

    Wasn't Motorola moving forward with a big open initiative lately? That might be good to turn attention towards.

    Yeah, they're following HTC who are providing the bootloader unlock for devices. Should I mention the HTC Sensation runs virtually the same chipset as the TouchPad? (NB: By virtually I mean there are differences so don't get all uppity on me)

    I wonder if the required drivers for moto stuff are available, and would even be useable for open webos. I think they may just be making binaries available, not the source files.

    if only open webos had a hardware manufacturer that could provide drivers for an open source device... ... ... HP, this is where you get a fully open source device ready to release when noones looking.
