As somebody who got into this business by covering Palm and webOS, it's safe to say I was at least mildly interested in where LG was going to take webOS. (LG bought webOS)[http://www.webosnation.com/lg-purchasing-hps-webos-division-licensing-webos-smart-tvs] from HP nearly a year ago, but the two had been (working together for months before)[http://www.webosnation.com/gram-working-lg-open-webos-tv] to bring webOS to LG's TV line-up.
Leading up to today it was a little vague on what webOS on TVs would look like, work like, and how far LG was willing to go with their little project. There weren't any indications of what exactly their plans were or how big they planned to go — if you'd asked any pundit leading up to this week what to expect, they likely would have told you to expect webOS to be on maybe a single series (same innards, different screen sizes) of LG TVs. How it would work was a big unknown.
