I like the effort of trying to advertise your OS, but what does Carbyn offer that my android device or iOS device can't do, what incentive to I have to switch? It looks like a nice idea, but unless you are stuck with a horrible thing like webOS I see no point in using Carbyn.

Thank you for your response but this is not my OS im just simply passing the word, please watch the youtube video or visit the website. This new OS is not intended to replace your OS this is purely browser based and the apps that you can run are IOS, Android, Rim etc all within your browser running through Carbyn, what ever as long as they are HTML5 based. I hope this clears up any confusion and thank you for your response.

What I was trying to say was what can Carbyn do that I can't do with my stock android phone? Why not just use android, which already has a well established market share and a wide assortment of apps? Sure you can use it on all your devices, but Microsoft is going to do the same thing with the upcoming windows 8 and their WP7 lineup.

Its not intended to replace android or any other OS, its purpose is to just be an alternative user experience that's cross platformed. It runs through the browser.

You are in the HP Touchpad thread, what does android or iOS have to do with that? Until android is 100%, 100% of us just have webOS...

Actually, this was posted with his Referral Code, so this is really just spam in channel so that when his spam count gets high enough he gets allowed to get an invite and an account for Carbyn OS.
Did some checking and it is a spam to play.
They even go so far to say things like "Thanks! There's a lot of demand for Carbyn......the more friends you get to signup for Carbyn, the sooner you gain access to Carbyn." then pass you links and referral code id to spam with.

Really, this thread should be locked, or at the very least, his referral code and any links with it stripped from post.

This is not spam thanks for your concern but came upon this an figured it would be something great to explore for the Touchpad, seemingly that all development for the Touchpad has ended. So like I said before this is an alternative so please don't bash this thread its only here for information purposes and not intended to spam so please if that is what you thought my sincerest apologies thank you.

How do you figure that all development for the TP has stopped? Touchdroid quit, but cm7 is chugging along, nearing completion in fact

My name is Mike, and I'm a flashaholic. But thanks to my sponsor, MIUI, I've been clean for weeks.

If it includes referral codes instead of you just putting in the link for the site so that you can gain your access to Carbyn ala "the more friends you get to signup for Carbyn, the sooner you gain access to Carbyn." then it is indeed spam.
The post is still here minus the "self serving" information. This isnt really an alternative os, its a browser based desktop which has been around for years.

Google any of these CloudMe (iCloud), DesktopTwo, eyeOS, G.ho.st, Glide OS, Netvibes, online OS or xOS Webtop for examples.

Thanks for posting information.

Thanks for clearing this up I never knew any of those other browser based desktops existed. Thank you for taking the time to research this referral code has been removed thank you again cheers.

Its a shame this was not explained correctly... This video
or the Lifehacker article explains it well... This does what Google is failing to do, the app store for this will be browser Independent. You will have a cross platform WebOS for your PC/MAC and Mobile devices. I discovered this last night on my iPad II. I look forward to using apps on my HP Touchpad, Android phones (3), Macbook Pro and Ubuntu machine... There are everyday apps that you can not use on all devices. I also like the fact that the HTML5 apps will communicate with one another. For example im playing music and start another app that need sound, it wil turn the music player off...

Thank you so much for clearing this up I knew that it wasn't spam but some people thought other wise and am just gonna leave it at that. And by the way you explained it very well. Thanks again.

This is NOT a webos, it is a browser desktop, you login to a server, you have desktop that is pushed to your browser. You have to be connected. As far as platforms, of course all apps follow it, they are saved on the server you login too, as long as your browser supports it, it shows up. Its the same as logging into your gmail on your device, its all on the server. As far as apps go, you cant have android, ios apps, webos apps and use them on any platform, you have Html 5 apps that were created for the server side, these are the only apps you can use. The only way to have ios, android , webos apps is if developers created html 5 apps of their products, but what possible reason would they, as they would have to give those apps to Carbyn, as they reside on Cabryn servers and it would never sync or be able to communicate with the native apps on those other platforms; i.e. the version found on phones, tablets, desktops, etc. as if they did, they would be ripped and removed from every market or app store for violations and privacy issues. They would literally have to kill and remove their products from the public. I used to help and develop for eyeOS back in 2004, so I understand how the system are setup and function and im sorry, but people are having HUGE blind eyes and not understanding of the massive limitations of Carbyn. it's a fun little plaything and development exercise, but sadly it is not a realistic business model that can function or keep going forward unless some massive wonder feature is thought up and created, which sadly has not been done yet in all the years of people working on these types of fun little experiments. Just dont get your hopes up or have expectations; they will do nothing but disappoint you.
