I think this would be a great match. Amazon has the its music, video, and book services to spark the interest of a platform that is too good to let die.

But why buy it when it is available for free? Like WebOS, Tezin is Linux with a HTML5 application layer. As it is supported by Intel and Samsung among other electronic giants, it will be well funded and supported in the future.

I think amazon would be the best company to purchase webOS. They are one of the few companies that would be able to make webOS successful again. I would love to see a future amazon tablet running webOS.

anything is better than seeing it die. Amazon seems to be in the Tablet wars to win the Tablet wars. But I thought that about HP as well. Both had grand plans and deep pockets. Hope this works. Sure will miss the option to have it on a smartphone.
