Submission + - WebOS: An Open Source Phoenix? (nytimes.com)

Whiteox writes: "More info on the demise of the HP Touchpad and why WebOS was abandoned. HP wanted to get onto the tablet bandwagon and the easiest way of doing this was the purchase of Palm. However old hardware and the choice of Webkit which proved to be too slow were not the only reasons. Other factors like the loss of developer talent and poor app programming choices killed it.
Is there still life for WebOS? According to new CEO Meg Whitman, there is but I think she is hoping that the open source community will fix the issues, ready for a new HP tablet in 2013."
