Here's a wild one -- webOS has been revived, and the suitor may surprise you. LG has reportedly lifted the troubled webOS unit from HP's hands, but instead of using it in future smartphones or tablets, it's planning to inject the operating system across its smart TV portfolio -- finally adding a layer of truth to a rumor we first spotted in October of last year. 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.
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.
