Hi people, i"m quite excited at the thought of android on this thing. I wish I knew a bit more about the programing side of things so I could help, I am learning but I doubt I'll be able to have much input. I'm just curious what the predicted speed/useability is of touchdroid? WebOS sucks, obviously, and although clocking to 1.7 helps it's still ridiculous to think these were originally priced so high.

What I'm unsure about is why HP bailed, I've read it was because webOS was an epic fail but then I hear it ran twice as fast on an ipad...which makes me think it's a hardware issue not software? So basically my question is does the touchpad have the capability of running android at a decent speed?

Sorry for the newb question, but research on this stuff has become a little difficult with the massive amount of 'HP firesale' news reports to wade through lol

cheers

There are custom kernels for webOS that have the Touchpad running 1.7GHz on both cores, stable. It can be pushed higher than that, but it gets a bit wonky. For reference, people who overclocked the ASUS Transformer (running Android stock) OC it to 1.6GHz. If the TouchDroid team can get Android on the 'pad, I'm certain it'll run just fine.

Google the F15C kernel for more info.
(Edit: Looks like you already knew about that, sorry).

webOS > Gingerbread as a tablet OS...

We could overclock both cores to 2.0 GHz but Gingerbread still wouldn't be able to handle it properly.. but once we get Honeycomb and the hardware acceleration it brings this tab is going to fly
