The product manager seemed to imply that there is current support (I think forum) that provides assistance.

But, I must wait for the HP TouchSmart that I am expecting to purchase soon.

You share that it does not run on these devices and yet he implied that it does. I'll try to contact him for more definitive position of what WebOS (GA version intends and where support questions can be answered.)

Personally I don't know; that was a quote from the review.

Summary of WebOS and its development assistance
AND
Official HP supported site for WebOS

I would recommend that you start with the Summary, above, then progress to the Official site which has comprehensive support (forum) and what experience you can expect.

HP's site showing its progression from Palm to WebOS "Community". Click Community.

BTW/ the review noted the TouchPad isn't supported. They have it running on the their TouchSmart. They're hoping that other developers will include it on mobile devices.

WebOS developers are off and running. See this!

Hope this helps

Everyone, by now, should have seen the "Surface". It has a processor that appears to be able to run a PUP should one want.

Problem: How to root this to allow a different OS to boot?

Also, expect that should you be able to run "full" Windows8 there is virtual host technology that might offers some additional OS options via your Surface.

Off and running. xPads....I should begin to reference these as Xphones and Xpads for what 2013 is leading us toward....the future as our lives are moving to the future as well.

Fellow future dwellers,

Puppy supports x86, now
Woof also is beginning to support ARM
We have Puppy running on 3 (I think it is) different ARM chips
Potentially it could also run on MIPS/Dragon chips being used internally in China
The developments in one woof improve the others.

I am spending practically all my time on an ARM powered pad. I do not expect or even think I want Puppy on it, it would requiring jailbreaking.

However our steam powered desktops will be eventually out of date when pads are cheap, have long battery lives and include a keyboard in the cover. That time is not yet here.

The ARM chip is a wonderfully simple design, ideally suited to running a small innovative OS.
There is a lot still to do. touch screen support. Android app support and a simplified interface that will run on 3 devices:

Desktop
Xpad
and phone

The merger, the gray area between phone and pad is now occurring . . .

I'm not entirely sure this is true. Seems some for TV do not run on Xphones/Xpads and vice-versa.

Just a word of caution.

Don't know how many are aware of one of the latest US regulations.

It allows (makes legal) the "jail-breaking" of your Xphone (cell phone) thru 2015.

BUT, it is now ILLEGAL to "jail-break" your Xpad or your xTV.

Imagine that@#*!

I believe xTV are just apps that run on your device, like XYNO, TED, etc..

Sorry should I have confused anyone.

What I am referring to by placing and "X" in front of Pad/Phone/TV is the reference I make to SMART devices. The SMART devices OSs are Android, iOS, and now Windows8 versions for phone, pads, and touch-screed devices.

Sorry if I caused confusion to any of this thread's readers.

PostPosted: Sun 04 Nov 2012, 21:53    Post subject: 5 new Tocuhsceen vendors  

Assuming dual boot and assuming my prior test with LightHoiuse64 on a HP TouchSmart remain consistent, we now have 5 vendors announcing lastweek TouchScreen Ultrabooks! The Vendors: Acer, ASUS, HP, Sony, Lenovo, and Samsung. WOW!

Take a look for yourselves. I think most of us can envision how these can be used and useful. For starters...BIGGER screens.

PostPosted: Wed 23 Jan 2013, 16:42    Post subject: Same industry information direction - slightly different pkg  

A new hardware information update.
There is a relationship between these 2 announcements. This was really evident at US's CES

Think this shows, indirectly, where the industry is charging toward.
