HP Releases Android TouchPad Tablet Kernel Source

HP sold TouchPad tablets like hot cakes back in the time when many changes were made to the company, products and the OS; the tablet (alongside other products) was heavily discounted but HP sent out a couple of TouchPads running an experimental build of Android, to the owners’ surprise.

Of course, HP initially denied and later own admitted to experimenting with the build; as a direct effect, they wouldn’t release the source code since the project should have never seen the light of day. Fast forward to today and we see HP releasing the source code complete with everything, except for the WiFi driver.

It looks like the two builds, webOS and Android, were developed by two different teams inside the company. This might not interest you at the moment but we’re positive that you’ll be interested in an official CyanogenMod 7 or even 9 port for the TouchPad. Hit the source link to find out more.
