Smart watches have been on the verge of exploding for the last two years, at least if you listen to analysts.

By Andrew Kameka on Friday September 14, 2012

By Andrew Kameka on Friday August 31, 2012

The Open webOS project has taken another step towards fulfilling HP's pledge to keep webOS alive. Following a promise to release webOS under an open source license, HP released a beta version of the code today. The code and development tools are the first step towards making the software that powered the Palm Pre and HP Touchpad useable for developers looking to put the software on other devices. HP has dropped efforts to build consumer products using webOS software, but the company has made 54 components and 450,000 lines of code available to developers. The final release of Open webOS is expected next month.
