Developers get webOS working on Samsung Galaxy Nexus
| by Shunal Doke |
Android phones are well known for their openness. One simply has to look at the large variety of custom-built ROMs available for Android devices for evidence of the openness of the hardware as well as the software. Developers have achieved great feats such as porting over Linux to Android devices. Recently, according to a post on The Open WebOS Project blog, developers have successfully ported WebOS to the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. The developers have also released a video that demonstrates WebOS running on the Galaxy Nexus.
According to Tom King of webOS-Ports, “The Community has been working right along with HP to make this a reality. With every release of code we have continued to track along and get things working with hardware, as much as possible, till today’s release let us put it all together, Kudos go the WebOS Ports team and especially Morphis, JaMa, and GNUtoo for working to get us to this point.” King has mentioned that the developers are now working on hardware acceleration which will greatly improve the performance and general usability.
Now running WebOS!

We’ve already established that the Lumia 720 is Nokia’s best effort as far as Windows Phone 8 handsets go. This could soon change once the Lumia 925 hits markets, but as it stands now, the Lumia 720 offers the best blend of features and performance, wrapped in a beautiful package that’s quite affordable.
