The deal includes the source code for webOS, "related documentation, engineering talent, and related webOS websites." Moreover, LG's procuring HP licenses for use with its webOS wares, not to mention patents that HP had originally gained from Palm. Not surprisingly, dollars and cents aren't being publicly discussed, but we'll be sure to clue you in on any more specifics as we get them.[/size][/font][/color]

I just want more webOS phones/tablets. I loved webOS and it had so much potential. :)

I fear that potential will forever remain unmet.

This is such a waste. So much potential lost. Aside from the fact that I would have never given something like this to LG, they're going to blow it on a TV.

Nice. I don't like current look and feel of Smart TV's (the OS feels cheap). Maybe WebOS will change things?

Sweet! LG sure coming up with phenomenal stuff/innovations. Can't wait to see how they incorporate this in to their TVs.
I wonder if the LG Smart TV Upgrader I ordered will be able to be updated to use this technology.
Would be cool, but no biggy if not. I'll just buy a new LG Smart TV when they have this available.
