What you see above is definitely very different and removed from everyday reality. In fact, we are talking about the Google Nexus 7 which obviously, being a Google product, will run on the Android mobile operating system and nothing else. Well, the folks over at WebOS Ports have been rather naughty, porting over webOS to the Google Nexus 7. This is definitely not the first Android-powered device to receive the webOS port ever since Open webOS v1.0 was released, and it definitely will not be the last.
This labor of love took Simon Busch a week with WebOS Ports to translate the build from the Galaxy Nexus over to the Nexus 7, and it can even run without having to hook it up to a computer. You will still need a tether during the boot-up process, but once done, you are able to unplug it from the desktop. Bear in mind that this is an early alpha build, so there are bound to have its fair share of bugs and glitches. We do hope to see more work as well as progress on this webOS port, as it certainly breathes new life into the Google Nexus 7 hardware and offers some more variety.Related articles:
