    I will have fun with it once its here

    I would have bought an Android tablet instead of the touchpad if there was a comparable one for $99, since there isn't a lot of new people with touchpads want options such as the massive library of android applications.

    Not sure what I think about people taking up the limited stock of these to run Android on them when those of us who want webOS are left out in the cold.

    What, that people want an affordable, well specced tablet to run the operating system that they like, that they are sure will have a continuing app ecosystem?

    Maybe you want a Touchpad, sure, but you can't say they're behaving irrationally...

    "Oh, I'd love to get this and see if I can get it to run Android, but I'll bet there are fans of webOS that are out there that want this more than me. Oh well, I guess I'll forget about this interesting idea and pass up a great deal so that people that REALLY wanted this tablet can enjoy it more."

    If you can dual boot and use Android in specific instances I would use Logmein or an RDP program at work, then WebOS at home. We need more software to truly make the Touchpad useable. If the only way to get there is Android, then bring it on. If we get document editting, an improved PDF reader, and remote control programs there would be no reason to dual boot as far as I'm concerned....
    Casio BOSS->Palm Pilot Professional->Palm M500->Treo 600-> Treo 680->Treo Pro (TP) ->HP Veer<->HP TP<->Pre3<>HP TP 4G
    Conn 6H-> Bach 36->Bach 16L (high Bb plays really flat?(fixed thanks to **** Akright))-> New York Bach 6viii
    Scalpel->Scope->Aesop->Hermes->Sidne->Davinci S>Davinci Si

    If something like that makes you mad, you are probably not a very happy person.

    I also want to use Zinio, Hulu+ and a few others, but yeah, that's the point. It would be GREAT for certain instances.

    This is a really cool project.

    You can obtain needed apk files from all over net. I don't know if something have changed, but Google wasn't forbidding unknown devices to access app store so theoretically, any device which runs on android and have market app could access marketplace.

    I want to put together a fund and offer a reward for the first person who ports webOS onto an Android or iOS tablet.

    I first bought this thing because 1. 100/150 is a great steal for a tablet of this caliber and 2. I think Android could be ported.. But after using it for the past couple days.. I absolutely love WebOS as a tablet OS. I think it blows Honeycomb out of the water in usability..

    and having to defend the specs because people think its cheap and low quality because its only $99... seriously..
