Around a year ago, webOS’s demise was highly publicized and the culmination of the debacle was the massive fire sale of HP Touchpads as it was decided that webOS would no longer be developed on. Luckily for us, instead of killing off the OS, HP decided to go open source and nothing excites the Android development community then trying to port an OS to a phone that it didn’t originally ship with. That brings us to today, where a port of webOS is being produced for the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

Now before you go looking for a download let me say that developers need only apply here. The guys behind this port have released their code and expect you to put it together yourself. Nevertheless, this could spark some potential interest in porting webOS, which was a unique and very usable OS, to other devices. If you feel like poking through the code, hit the source link below.
