Like many out there
, I jumped at the chance to get my hands on an HP TouchPad during its initial $99 fire sale specifically for the purpose of running Android on it. It's a very similar motive for when I bought a Barnes & Noble Nook Color
, though in this case, I got a whole lot more tablet for the money. Like the Nook Color, the best (but not the first) option for running a full version of Android is the venerated CyanogenMod
, now on its seventh version. I've spent the last week or so installing, customizing and generally playing with the one-two hardware and software combination - here are my impressions.
