HP working on licensing webOS to a number of interested companies
As our loyal readers may point out, the news coincides with the speculations from not long ago that HP could let other manufacturers use its mobile platform in an effort to bring the webOS ecosystem to a higher level. Which smartphone makers are interested in webOS is not exactly clear at this time, but people in the know claim that Samsung is on the list. This comes as a bit of a surprise as the company already has a number of successful Android smartphones in its portfolio while bada OS is surely not leaving the stage anytime soon. Would it make sense if a third platform makes it to Samsung devices?
As HP is still negotiating the licensing details with the undisclosed companies, there is no exact time frame given as to when we might eventually see the first non-HP webOS device hit the market.
