It. Won’t. Die. While the HTC HD2 made for a terrific developer trick pony, it seems that the HP TouchPad has it beat. It’s an odd sight to witness as we’re getting word that Lenovo may plan on pushing Android Marshmallow on some of its devices Indian in a whole year’s time.
It’s the work of devoted devs, unpaid for side projects like these, to really pull up something interesting like porting Android Marshmallow onto the HP TouchPad, a 2011 tablet that originally ran webOS. It’s been a Cyanogenmod bastion as well as an Android ROM one for [...]

The newest, slimmest tablet beside one of the oldest and clunkiest - and only one of them ever saw daylight. Join us for ep. 46 of our weekly tech podcast!
Nostalgia is a funny thing. Sometimes it creeps up on you, and tickles you at the edge of your senses without you even realizing it. One minute you’re sitting there and you catch of whiff of roast beef mixed with stale beer and blammo, you’re thinking about Cindy Pepperstein who firmly but gently turned you down for the senior prom.
And sometimes nostalgia hits you in the face with a shovel, which is the situation I found myself in not long ago. I started thinking, as I admittedly often do, about webOS. About what could have been.

My Microsoft Surface RT tablet and my Nokia Lumia 920 smartphone run software that looks alike, but each Windows device barely knows the other exists. Read on to see why I think this is wrong.
Woot has the 32GB TouchPad, refurbished, for about $195.
Last week, I showed you how to install the CyanogenMod9-Alpha 0.6 build of Android Ice Cream Sandwich on the HP TouchPad. Seven days worth of using Google’s software on the ill-fated tablet have left me with a few observations to share. As a recovering webOS die-hard who’s carried the TouchPad since launch day, the experience was equal parts surreal and exciting, with one or two dollops of frustration and fear thrown in.
If you’re a fellow webOS expat, or if you’d just like to see what the CM9 experience is like for someone more used to flipping cards [...]
When HP dumped the TouchPad in spectacular fashion with a bargain-basement firesale last fall, hobbyists flocked to eBay, Amazon, and Best Buy to snag their piece of heavily-discounted tablet hardware. Some of these buyers were just looking for a cheap tablet; others were webOS fans hoping to stock up on some long-term backups for their favorite platform; and still others had a different dream. They wanted a cheap but well-specced tablet on which to run Android.
Thanks to the dedicated efforts of the CyanogenMod Team, that dream has finally been willed into reality. And while [...]
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 [...]
