So lately I’ve been using my HP Touchpad more and more. I bought the touchpad back when my work got some stock and was selling it exclusively to us the employees at the firesale price of 99.99. We only had limited quantity per store so basically it was a draw to see who can buy one. Obviously, I won 🙂
Anyway, it was running WebOS 3.2 but it was very limited in the amount of apps it add. The HP app store didn’t have a wide selection of apps that were worth buying.
A couple weeks ago I learned that they released Ice Cream Sandwich for the Touchpad. Ice Cream Sandwich is also known as Android 4.0 released by Google and ported over to the HP Touchpad by the talented folks at Cyaogenmod. They had released Cyaogenmod 7. Gingerbread based OS to the touchpad already but since it’s not optimized for tablets, I didn’t bother. ICS is more optimized for tablet being the successor of Honeycomb.
Now I’m running my HP Touchpad with CM9 Alpha 2 and with Hardware accelerated video I can finally use emit to stream videos on the 10″ tablet. It is not useful again 🙂
