Add Android OS to HP TouchPad Android Hack


HP TouchPad Android Hack! A race to change the HP TouchPad to the Android Operating System
HP TouchPad Android OS
As many of you know, HP has recently slashed the price of their HP TouchPad. You can now purchase the HP TouchPad 16GB for $99 (Originally $400), and the 32GB Model(Originally $500) for $150. These products have been getting sold out everywhere. Because this product is being discontinued, support for the product will be vanishing as well. Due to the short lifespan of this product before being discontinued (only a few months), the Apps available has been small and now how much longer HP will continue to support and update the device is up in the air.

Geeks all around are looking to get their hands on this nice tablet so that they can put the Android Operating System on it. And why not? The Android OS is already so robust. This operating system change alone could fix several of the woes that plagued the TouchPad during its initial release.

However it is important to note that hacking the TouchPad to use the Android OS is not be an easy task. As we have seen, most mobile device OS ports have been sub-par, or consist of running an OS on top of another one. With such a sudden influx in sales and support ending for this discontinued device, could we see a solid Andorid Operating System port for the HP TouchPad? Only time will tell.

Stay tuned for updates.
