Is there anyway you can get the webtop on the Nexus?

I'm torn between the RAZR and Nexus for my upgrade
If nexus can get Webtop then that's an easy win

It won't work since the Nexus does not have a mini hdmi port.

It would probably be much easier to build something like webtop from the ground up than port it. In either highly unlikely youll see either.

I invented cyberspace. You're trespassing.

HDMI on Nexus
Just a thought all, the Samsung Infuse comes with a Mini USB adapter/connector that outputs to HDMI. Whether or not this could aid in Webtop development for the Nexus I'm not sure. Just a thought! but also agree this may be a lost cause!

Webtop
Hello,
A little birdy told me wait..wait...wait

Also, the Galaxy Nexus has an MHL port, which is a combo of USB-on-the-go, HDMI, and USB charging. You can get a USB/HDMI -> MHL cord for all MHL phones.

is there someone who tried the hdmi functionality?

In any case webtop like will not be possible since you can connect both hdmi and mouse on the same port

You can create something close. Simply get the MHL cable everyone is talking about, a bluetooth keyboard and mouse, connect it all to the nexus and you have one giant tablet-like interface =) Not really too portable since you can't carry around an LCD screen though, lol.

More like netbook+phone. See Atrix, Bionic, etc. Although it's more acceptable than optimal, Moto has a large head start on this type of solution.

For tablet+phone, Asus may have an interesting entry in 1H2012.
