HP TouchPad tablet. But that thought aside, it looks like we are still seeing ROMs being released. And just recently, it looks like an updated CM9 and an (unofficial) CM10 build have come available for use.
HP is looking to possibly mount a comeback because an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich powered HP Bender smartphone has been spotted in a few benchmarks. HP could be looking to start up right where webOS left off and switch gears to the wonderful world of Android -- just like they should have done years ago.

received TouchPads inexplicably running Android. Apparently the PC manufacturer had been testing Gingerbread builds on its tablet (which runs Palm's WebOS natively). As a show of solidarity to the development community, HP has now released the source code for its own internal version of the Android kernel to the CyanogenMod team. CyanogenMod maintains the most popular TouchPad Android port, CyanogenMod 7 Gingerbread, as well as the new CM9 Ice Cream Sandwich. You can read all the juicy details over at RootzWiki.
HP decided to disperse WebOS as an open source OS, and recent news suggests developers are getting excited. MIUI, an extremely popular visually modified/skinned version of CyanogenMod, has started to make its way over to the HP TouchPad. This is an extremely stable Alpha version, and would suffice for daily use.
available for download at RootzWiki now.
