Up til now we’ve only seen screenshots and heard rumors. But LG researcher Hong Sung-pyo confirmed the presentation of their new webOS TV set at CES 2014 in Las Vegas!
With a purported 2.2 GHz dual-core processor and 1.5 GB of RAM this will be the highest spec hardware webOS has ever officially run on. We will see how much LG customized the interface. According to rumors from the beginning of the year they revamped it completely.
That’s what LG called webOS together with their Smart TVs. I’m very exited what this means for webOS, Enyo, and especially for our current devices. Will the TVs use the current App Catalog? It would be great if developers (re)start creating new apps. I can’t wait to see what LG is preparing. What do you think?
Sorry, this one isn’t with pivotCE (although we are always looking for more contributors), but LG are looking for a Staff Software Engineer to work on the Enyo platform. So yes, Enyo and webOS are still very much alive. If you would like to put all your webOS developing skills to good use then head over to the LG link below. If you are lucky enough to get the position at their Silicon Valley Labs in Santa Clara, CA, do come back and tell us what it is they’re up to (NDA permitting)!
As you may (or may not) know, MoDev East is happening this week on the 12th and 13th of December at the Gannett Conference Center in Mclean, VA. The Enyo team are also going to be present so this is a good chance to pose any questions you may have, or just to pop in and see them. What’s more, they are giving away a free pass to any interested Enyo developers. All you have to do is to get in touch with them via Twitter @EnyoJS.
As a parent, Christmas time means I get to hear my 8 year old oggling over every toy commercial she sees. In fact, that’s usually the first indicator that I have to sit her down with a pencil and a piece of paper to get her to write a letter to Santa Claus. Once the letter is done I can remind her that she already wrote to Santa to make the begging lull…a bit.
DeveloperTech interviewed ex-Palm employee, Gray Norton (now LG’s Director of the Enyo Framework and Tools) about LG’s plans for Smart TVs and how Enyo is being incorporated in their development. Among what Gray had to say, there was talk about webOS and how the work LG has done with Enyo for next year’s TVs lends itself to be used with and without webOS attached to it. Hmmmmm…
