Cyanogenmod team releasing a new video demonstrating its latest milestone. Both of the TouchPad's 1.5GHz cores can now be used, all of the sound issues have been addressed, and there's some impressive 3D gaming to be had, too. Hardware accelerated video is also now functional, which means smooth playback of 720p HD video locally stored on the tablet itself, as well as high-quality YouTube playback. Obviously there's WiFi support, along with the accelerometer, audio system and more. The intention is still to provide a dual-boot system, capable of loading either Android or the original webOS of the TouchPad. Unfortunately there's no public ROM for owners to try out themselves; that'll be ready when it's ready, the Cyanogenmod team insists. [youtube ApfeSj4Ql6Q]

multitouch support for an Android port, but now we know the CyanogenMod 7 build to be a few steps ahead, nearly ready for a full release! All they've got left to get working, apparently, is Wi-fi support and a few other tinier bugs. Sound like the system for you?
check this story out. Just yesterday Google updated the video app to allow streaming and playback of rented movies on FroYo and Gingerbread devices too. We have good news for those rooted users though.
Android 3.1 officially in Germany and a few other places on July 5. The launch date for the US and many other places has yet to be offered. If you want Android 3.1 on your A500 and you don't want to wait, you can get it right now via two new ROMS. A leaked official Android 3.1 build landed in China last week and has since been put up on XDA Forums.
