Here is something very interesting. If you are not sure what you are looking at, It’s the code repository of Open-webOS. That’s the code originally released by Hewlett Packard and developed by LG electronics. What it shows is webOS being tested on a Nexus 5.
We’ve already had some excitement with the recent Ports to the Touchpad & Nexus 4 by the webOS-Ports team, but this was submitted by an engineer at LG.
So is this a gift for the team to help with future ports or is it LG’s own project? If LG puts webOS on a Nexus 5 and makes that code available, isn’t that an LG webOS phone? Could this test merely be a prelude to a future project?
We’ll keep you updated on any developments and in the meantime will speculate wildly with the rest of the webOS community.
