HP to release WebOS as open source software

HP today announced that it will contribue its webOS software to the open source community. WebOS is a mobile operating system that debuted on the Palm Pre prior to the company being acquired by HP, and also served as the OS for HP’s TouchPad tablet. HP will make the underlying code of webOS available under an open source license, and promises to be an “active participant and investor” in the project going forward, with the ENYO application framework to be released to the community in the “near future”.
