WebOS tablet shown running Android 2.3.5
Hobbyist developers from Team-TouchDroid claim to have overcome touchscreen incompatibilities that had prevented HP's webOS-based TouchPad tablet from running usable Android builds. The group has reportedly configured touchscreen drivers that enable full multitouch support using the TouchPad's display and Android 2.3.5.
Several groups quickly began working to bring Android to the TouchPad, after HP discontinued the tablet and dropped the price to just $100. The CyanogenMod team recently demonstrated support for 2D graphics acceleration and an interface geared for tablets.
The current firmware hacks are based on Gingerbread builds, though it remains unclear if the projects will eventually achieve similar results using Honeycomb.
