- webOS will be completely open source: HP will spin off its webOS team into an open source organization and give it time to succeed.
- There will be new webOS hardware from HP. Most likely tablets, probably not phones. It is not sure whether the hardware will come out in 2012 or later.
Great news that webOS is still alive. Enyo and PhoneGap will be an amazing combo for iPad apps.Furthermore, the mobile world will gain an Android competitor. It’s not yet sure that it will appeal to a major manufacturer, but it could, given that Google has recently increased its control of Android. Quoting the heading of an Ars Technica article: “HP's decision means webOS could end up more open than Android”.
