HP Android

If you were lucky enough to get an HP TouchPad this time last year during their “fire sale” for $99 (16GB) or the $149 (32GB) your Android luck hasn’t run out yet. Remember, Android first came to the HP TouchPad via CM7, Gingerbread. A few months later, Android 4.0 came to the HP TouchPad, bringing a true tablet UI to the 10″ popular slate. The CyanogenMod development community continues to grace the HP TouchPad, this time with Android 4.1.1 Jelly Bean showing up via an unofficial CM10 preview release.

Remember the HP TouchPad tablet? Sure you do, it was HP’s poorly marketed webOS-running iPad-killer wannabe that the company decided to discard soon after launching... it. HP sold the device for very low prices once it decided it has no future with the company – as low as $99 – which made it very appealing to the crowds that wouldn’t have otherwise picked one up.<...

Even the HP Touchpad gets a dose of Ice Cream Sandwich, thanks to CyanogenMod 9. Though still in the Alpha stage, an updated release, Alpha 0.6, includes a number of stability and user interface... additions, such as:

Touchscreen fixes. Ability to hide the combined bar (navigation buttons and clock) for full screen. This uses ICS api so it will require api support but not all apps have been upd...

The Ice Cream Sandwich fever has not subsided yet.  In fact, it is still getting hotter and hotter, with no sign of breaking at all.  So many Android devices are getting their share of the... delicious treat, especially with custom ROMs such as CyanogenMod 9.  One of the latest beneficiaries of the CyanogenMod 9 custom ROM is the HP TouchPad.

Previously, developers were able to pro...

The HP TouchPad has traveled around the wheel of fate. It was an infamous webOS tablet that turned into one of the most sought-after tablets after Android developers were able to tear it apart... and installed Android in its system. With an Ice Cream Sandwich ROM already available for this device, it will surely make consumers regret not having bought such a splendid tablet.

For some time...

Just when you thought that the HP TouchPad would be dead after it lost webOS support from HP, think again. Developers from the Android community have already taken the device for a full spin... with reports showing signs of success running the CyanogenMod 7 ROM based on Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

Now, as users already got a taste of how CM7 works wonders for their device, it’s time to...

Team Xron Honeycomb

Owners of the discontinued HP TouchPad are probably scratching their heads for buying a tablet already dead in the water. Fortunately, mod teams are busy building Android ports to several devices... including the HP TouchPad, for which a pure Android Honeycomb version has been developed by a group called Team Xron.

The team’s port itself is a fork of another port made by another group known a...
