It looks like things are picking up with regard to giving new life to HP’s Touchpad. In the past 24 hours, we reported that Team-Touchpad had worked diligently, and has most recently succesfully enable the touchscreen to reach its full potential, with 10 point multitouch input to their Gingerbread specific build.

Now, today, we have a new video from that has a member of the CyanogenMod team claiming that some of the code used by the TouchDroid group were stolen from from a previous build of Cynanogen Mod 7.

Anyway, it doesn’t really matter. What matters is that multitouch is fully enabled in the latest TouchPad CM7 ROM, as well as hardware graphics acceleration. Unfortunately though, still missing is arguably the most important element: fully functioning WiFi.

The plan is to have the device functioning in a dual-boot mode, so that users can switch between fully functioning versions of WebOS and a hacked version of Android Gingerbread 2.3+. Still, don’t get your hopes up as of yet, as a public build is still not available, and there  still remains a lot of work to be done.

Anyway, check out the video below, and you’ll get a sense of where they are at. Still trying to grab a Touchpad?
