HP releases Open webOS 1.0, out of beta with video demonstration
This release follows a couple beta updates this summer from HP. In addition to drumming up developer support, HP faces the challenge of seeing Gram, the webOS/Palm spin-off from HP, stand on its own.
HP has put a lot of effort into this Open webOS initiative, even as it looks like they will re-enter the smartphone market, albeit via Android.

Cool stuff. I love open, and hopeful that the Open WebOS community is a good one.

I am happy to see webOS returning back in the field, now only if companies like Sony join in to support webOS, not a very possible scenario at the moment but one can wish.

It's so sad to see such a powerful open source OS reserved for... hotel kiosks.
FFS, iOS should be used on these hotel kiosks. OWebOS should be made into another Android!

That was so boring. They could have at least got a really hot chick to do the presentation.

Looks like an interesting OS but dude, LAG, serious lag in this presentation.
They need to fix that if they want the OS to be comfortable to use, input lag is a serious issue when it comes to touch interfaces, whether it's a hardware or software issue it has to be fixed.

Geez.... Not even talking about a new phone based on their own OS. No problem with HP taking a shot at Android. Gotta get back on the horse. But such a low quality presentation and no enthusiasm and no support from them.
I miss WebOS. What a waste. This is a long shot. Tizen and Firefox are getting more support, and the MeeGo restart is getting more excitement.

It was truly painful to watch. So much potential, yet the dots just couldn't be connected.

It appears to be running in an emulator on Ubuntu or something... that would explain the slowness.
