WebOS project heading to Kickstarter

Posted on Tuesday, December 11 2012 @ 15:09:13 CET by


The Tech Report writes a company by the name of Phoenix International Communications wants to bring the now open-source WebOS operating system to market with custom smartphone hardware via a call for crowdfunding on Kickstarter.
Open WebOS, as it's called these days, has been ported to some existing devices already. There's even a version that runs as an Android app. However, Phoenix wants to produce its own hardware using a manufacturer in China. The firm's leader, Matthew Zakutny, told Technology Review that the plan is to start with lower-end devices and slowly move upmarket. Phoenix will reportedly seek funding via Kickstarter, which could be a fertile resource given WebOS's old-school Palm roots. Kickstarter projects seem to do well when there's a hint of nostalgia involved.
