The developers behind the Open webOS project have brought the mobile operating system to Google's Nexus 7 tablet.

Open webOS developers have ported the Linux operating system that was effectively abandoned by Hewlett-Packard to run on the popular Nexus 7 tablet. This webOS port comes after Ubuntu was made to run on the Nexus 7 along with Chromium OS and other Linux distributions for those not liking Google Android that ships on the tablet.

Below is a video of Open webOS in action on the Google Nexus 7 tablet, which is powered by a NVIDIA Tegra 3 SoC.
