Devs working on a webOS port to HTC Hero

In what might be one of the best ports ever attempted, the crew over at XDA-Dev forum are working on porting HP-Palm’s webOS to the HTC Hero. It is not surprising to see this port take place, what is surprising, is why did it take this long with all of the great hardware on the market today? I for one cannot wait to take this puppy for a test drive. If they make this a successful port/build, I might have a to put in a request for a dual-booting webOS/Android HTC EVO4G based build. Maybe HP will now hear the cries of webOS fans all over the world and give us a 4.3″ 1.2 Ghz monster with some serious ROM and RAM.

Looks like the guys over at XDA Dev site put together an app that allows the Samsung TouchWiz UI to load up on your Nexus One. Why someone would want to spoil the pure Android OS is beyond me, but I have to admit that it looks pretty damn nice. It works with both Eclair and Froyo so if you have an hankering for some TouchWiz juice, head on over to their site and check it out.

Nokia N8 final Symbian N Series device? Not so fast

Reports by CNET and others this morning have stated that Nokia’s N8 would be the last of the Symbian operating system. According to the reports, Nokia would switch to the now preferred MeeGo OS for their flagship N series handsets. But the man of the hour, who has held Nokia and other phones in his hands before some of the best gadget sites in the world, Eldar Murtazin, editor-in-chief of Mobile Review, has other things to say. He states that “Nokia N8 is not a final Symbian device in Nseries. Cnet misunderstand Nokia as i see it. It will be at least 3-4 devices more.”

So before everyone starts believing that the N series will not be sporting anymore Symbian here in the next few handsets, you can be sure that Eldar has some pretty decent connects and so far has not led us wrong with his intel.
