After HP announced that it will no longer provide support for Web OS devices, it was quite uncertain about what will happen to the fate of TouchPad, a half-baked tablet by HP. But a team of coders is now trying to bring back the happiness by loading Android onto HP TouchPad as well.
Three developers and other supporters have launched the TouchDroid project. They have set up a shop on the RootzWikiforums with an objective to port Android on the TouchPad, which has been selling out at huge discounts, $99 for 16 GB and $149 for the 32 GB. The goal behind this TouchDroid project is to first produce a stable beta version by using Android Gingerbread and then moving on by developing a Honeycomb version.
TouchDroid will provide a version of Android OS to run on the TouchPad, thus opening a world of apps that you can use on your TouchPad tablet. The team has put up a Facebook page that will enable you to track the work of the TouchDroid team. Currently, more than 2,000 people are already following the project on Facebook.
For now, the team is working hard to come up with new project plans and activities. You can expect a release of this version only after the team has completed all their activities.
All we can say for now is that once the TouchDroid is in the market, you cannot just stop yourself from buying it.
