I would try it out for sure but it probably wouldn't be my daily driver. It'll for sure be interesting to see though.

im definitely interested, used to have a palm pre and loved the software but just not enough app development on the platform. it might be nice to dual boot with ics.

If there is one thing that web is does right, it's multi tasking. Could be cool :)

If it were somehow able to be ported, it would probably (and sadly) turn into a drama fest by those that don't understand webos ≠ android os because

1) "zomggg i dont have LTE whyyy????" (because there are no drivers for it and their RIL doesn't support it, duh)
2) "wuttt?? there's no apps for webos!!!" (for proof of such complaining, just have a look at the touchpad forum) (this is also not my personal opinion, just the opinion of the complainers).
3) "My favorite app isn't on webos I hate itttt!"

I like webos (and own 2 touchpads), but in my experience, most on Android users on the forums that tried it, either like it for about a day or two and then they're bored with it and a small minority take it to the forums to complain (making them seem like a majority). Heck, it only took up like 600mb on the touchpad and yet there were people that wanted to remove it completely, despite cyanogen saying they should keep it.

yuck, webOS is not designed for (relatively to overall PC power) slow hardware..
Maybe on a dual core a15 id like webOS..even then... just, why..

I bought a palm pre for my dad awhile ago. After trying to set it up, I promptly returned it for an Android. I would rather have iOS or WinMo than WebOS.

it would make more sense to port the "cards" interface and add nav bar swipe gestures to android

My first smartphone was a Palm Pixi Plus. WebOS was great for a first OS, but now that I'm using Android, which offers so much more, I can't see any reason to go back to WebOS except as a novelty.

It's like putting training wheels back on after you've learned how to ride a bike.

I'm thinking this poll is wrong... Why can't I vote 'no' ? Yesterday & today I get an 'oops something went wrong'. Anyone else get this?

Yep, I think even if you vote "No" you have to select a developer from the bottom still.

EDIT: Yep, just tested it, and that is the case.

He's not in the list....for the love of the 'corn, why??!?!

He almost single-handedly got AOSP on the Fascinate by coding his own RIL. He could probably port WebOS 1.0 (released today in all its.....glory) in his sleep.

If he like, ya know, actually wanted to...and stuff.

Yes, I realize now that I raised this post from the dead...but they released WebOS 1.0 today (http://www.theverge.com/2012/9/28/3424270/open-webos-reaches-version-1-0) so at least it is relevant...
