    If hp is going to continue working on the software, but is abandoning hardware, this is exactly what their engineers should be doing. Unfortunately, that would require basic competence at HP.

    Please read all about it, virtual machines are emulators (as I mentioned above).

    Again, I will state unequivocally, you cannot port one operating system to another. (whether you have source code or not).
    That's not saying much --- Android OS is a virtual machine residing on top of the linux kernel (along with a few basic native hardware drivers). Classic Blackberry OS is a java me virtual machine.

    This is not an academic exercise. This is a real life exercise. Google is calling their dalvik virtual machine (bundling on top of the linux kernel with a bunch of native hardware drivers) as the Android OS. Who are you to question whether Google is labelling their "OS" correctly?

    The upper layers of UI abstraction seem to me to be largely independent of the underlying OS.

    That having been said, having spent some time with the Android network source code, I can only hope that Palm and HP spent a little more time under the hood than the Android folks did. Don't even get me started on the VPN stacks in Android.

    Port it to an android phone. You assumed I meant port the is onto another os. No need to be rude. I just find it simpler to say android than android hardware........

    bc webOS is dying and the problem has always been the hardware a better question is why wouldn't you want webOS on say the Motorola photon?

    It's not so much I assumed wrong then you incorrectly stated the question. I probably wouldn't have said anything if I didn't read your cocky statement, "exactly what the title says"

    Since Google doesn't make hardware the only thing that makes something Android is the OS.
