I searched the community and I didn't see anything directly related to porting webOS to another tablet. Would this even be possible? I mean why bother porting android or unbuntu to a tp when it is dead?
Since most of the discussions and reviews, before HP abandoned its hardware, was how webOS was great (I agree wholeheartedly) but the hardware itself was insufficient to run it effectively. I would spend my money on a recent samsung or an asus tablet without blinking if I could run it with webOS!
I know people haven't looked at phones as you would lose the gesture area, amongst other features, but the tp had no such ability, thus one would lose little and potentially have a rocket with which to run webOS.
I was a little anxious after the announcement and returned my $550 tp to my local store, only to find out a couple of days later that instead of preventing returns, as I thought they might, they were price matching. So now I am without a tablet and however hard I scrub the net, I can't find any "reasonably" priced tp anywhere. And now my wife wants one too!! sigh...
So can anyone please help me port webOS onto another tablet!?! Is this possible? Is it even a good idea?
