HP TouchPad app does more multitasking in a single window than certain iDevices can manage all day.
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.
Android living happily with WebOS on the same HP TouchPad, but the developers hadn't released the necessary files to try it out yourself. Rejoice, cheap tablet modders: the indefatigable denizens of XDA-Developers have done it again. You can now download and install an alpha version of the WebOS Android installer, keeping your TouchPad's core software intact.
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]
even HTC buying up the failed OS by HP. We have seen plenty of reports regarding this exact situation and now with the Apple vs Samsung lawsuits and Google buying Motorola the time for Samsung to make a move might be closer than we think.
Cyanogen - and today the worlds most notorious fire-sale-ridden tablet, the HP TouchPad, appears to be booting the best. But wait a second, doesn't the HP TouchPad run webOS? Why, yes it does, but as the $99 sale of said tablet made the entirety of its stock go down to zero after HP announced they were canning their webOS hardware department, Android was a certain next step - and these days, one step after Android equals Cyanogen.
