    Hey!

    I truly love WebOs and all the benefits it has as an Operating System. Nevertheless, when I found myself in the edge of buying a tablet to pair with my dear Pre Plus, I came to realize that our new HP-cough-Palm-cough hardware option was not enough for me, especially if it was missing USB Ports.

    Thats why Im thinking to go for a cheap Android Tablet, until something better comes up.....but....im seriously concerned to think that I might not be able to use WebOs Quick Install anymore if I do so, for as far as I know it only works with Windows...anbody can think of an option to install .ipk files using Android?

    If what you're talking about is a tablet device that'll replace the current function of a full size computer in the WebOS Quick Install scenario, forget it (unless you get a Windows tablet, which is basically a computer without a keyboard). Certainly you've got no chance of running WebOS Quick Install from an Android device pushing to a Pre - never going to happen. Android doesn't run desktop Java apps (such as WebOS Quick Install) so unless something changes then Android isn't your platform.

    Is there a reason why you do the computer-based install thing? Why not do everything from your Pre via Preware?

    But what about using VMware to emulate Windows on Android? Will it then be able to recognize the Palm Pre attached by USB?

    I am looking for a way to do this through a computer/tablet because each time I run an IPK internally from Internalz or Preware it never installs. Have tried with multiple ones

    Thanks a lot!
