As promised, HP has delivered the first functional version of the Open webOS mobile operating system. And over the weekend, webOS-ports.org developers managed to port it on Google Android 4.x OS running Galaxy Nexus smartphone.

The Open webOS comes with new Enyo 2, a JavaScript app framework, and will let the developers work porting the cross-platform applications to work on this platform. Jim Zemlin, Executive Director of The Linux Foundation, stated that, “By using the build framework for embedded Linux, the Yocto Project with OpenEmbedded-Core, Open webOS is poised to deliver an open source build environment that developers will thrive from. Open webOS continues to hit its milestones, and we expect the community around the project to continue to grow. All the right tools are in place.”

The Open webOS can be ported on number of devices that allow installing open-source based Linux Kernel and the user interface. By early next year we can expect to see the first Open webOS based devices being formally unveiled for the masses.
