Video: Open webOS is running pretty smoothly on a Google Nexus 7
Now, we get to see it in action again, this time on a Google Nexus 7. There are two things that stand out about this particular port, the first is that it only took Simon Busch with WebOS Ports a week to translate the build from the Galaxy Nexus to the Nexus 7, the second is that Open webOS is able to run without being connected to a PC. Boot-up still requires a tether, but after that, the tablet can be unplugged from the desktop.

Great. I would always prefer no more than 20-25% share for any mobile platform so that customers really remain the "KING" and for tablets best day would be the day UBUNTU is formally released for tablets

No surprise here as you can practically anything on an Android device.

hahaha, I'm not rooted too. I'm more interested in Cyanogenmod than this. But some inner voice tells me not to root and I don't know why. :)

Do you know the meaning of "ALPHA BUILDS" ??????
It's clearly mentioned in the video's title and description ...

compare this with bb10 alpha build and go bang your head to the wall!

When did you see BB10 ported to nexus 7 ????
Check your facts, child...

you said alpha builds.....it reffers to the software...i didn't know that there are alpha builds for hardware too....and btw, the nexus 7 has a lot of guts when it comes to hardware. the conclusion is: webos is s**tty!

Yes it's laggy, but you have to understand that in order for it to work smoothly, all low level OS stuff like kernel, drivers, etc. have to be re written to work with the OS and hardware. It is NOT easy.
It was actually running very smooth on the home page and multitasking. Only the apps looked laggy to me. This is a very early development on an OS that is not written for this hardware. If you can do better, get in there and help them write the code to smooth it out!
