Recently, we came across a weird story that Android ran on some person’s touchpad out of the box. The person even put it on eBay for sale.
Well,forget that, no need to buy a droidPad now that CyanogenMod has really got Android working on a touchpad already.
This all started with the HP TouchPad firesale that happened the last before weekend. More than 60% of the people who bought it wanted Android running on their TouchPad.
If you are not aware, the CyanogenMod team is responsible for making the most stable Android aftermarket firmwares like the CM7, currently the most popular too. They are the persons responsible for making Android, i mean CyanogenMod 7 ( Based on Gingerbread ) running on the HP touchpad. The OS is in the alpha stage right now.
Major kudos to the team. Apparently they dont want that bounty of 2000$ thats going the rounds. They say ” We are motivated to do it right, not do it fast “. Aren’t they so cool ?
Anyhow, here’s the video of the alpha Android that is a few weeks old, seems they already have a much better version running now. Take a look :
They say they’ll provide a final solution that allows to multi boot our choice of the OS. Sounds great for all you TouchPad power users who would want some of the Green Robot’s vast catalog of apps.
