Web OS Ported to Galaxy Nexus

While HP only got it to work on a desktop system, some talented developers were able to put out Open Web OS 1.0 on actual mobile hardware, aka the Galaxy Nexus. But of course just like any new software it has its bugs (ahem iOS Maps). Though it has reached basic functionality such as Wi-Fi capability, it hasn't reached the ability to use any cellular capabilities. Another major challenge is getting hardware acceleration working (which is a common issue in porting ICS to Gingerbread devices), which  means there will still be lag. So for now this can't be considered usable, but it goes to show that WebOS isn't dead.
