I don't entirely know what to say about this. Last week, HP announced that they would be creating a webOS-based internal start-up, Gram. An ambitious idea, for sure, trying to breathe new life into Palm's baby through an internal revival. The big question that the announcement left us with was: what about the Open webOS Project?
Not to be outdone, HP's Open webOS Project, the decision to release webOS under the Apache license, made their own announcement. As was the original plan, webOS was to be released in Beta form by the end of August and that commitment was met. This week, the Open webOS Project released Open webOS Beta 1.0 to the masses.
So, what does Open webOS Beta 1.0 contain and how does it differ from the newly announced webOS derivative Gram? Hit the break for more details.
