    In WebOS mode I feel overclocking makes more of an impact. On the Android side I don't see any real difference, then again I've only been running for a little under a day....

    I didn't really comment on bugs other than my panic when I thought I had bricked it. My negative impression was based on not liking the Android interface as well as WebOS. I found it less intuitive. It had nothing to do with bugs. I knew the risk and I couldn't care less about the minor bugs I have seen. Had I bricked it I would have been mad at MYSELF and no one else.

    Yeah, Androids runs pretty fast so it's not as huge of a difference. In particular, Opera Mobile is lightning after using the sluggish WebOS browser.

    Anyone having problems with flash? There seems to be a problem with the new update. It's not being recognized.

    Installed yesterday using the great instructions here: How to install Google Android on the HP TouchPad (with CyanogenMod7) - Liliputing. Having absolutely no problems. Most everything seems to work fine. Not sure why it's called an Alpha release as it definitely is worthy of Beta rating. Thanks CM7 team!!!

    I imagine he's talking about the way webOS lets you overscroll beyond the edges of the webpage for no discernible reason. So for example, your trying to scroll down a page reading text, and instead of a clean up/down scroll, it's moving side to side a bit as well. When you let go, boing, the screen snaps back to center, as if a rubber band was attached.

    It's annoying, at times.

    For example, trying to play machinima on webOS is nearly impossible. The flash element keeps losing "full focus" and suddenly your rubber-banding it around instead of moving your little robot. Highly annoying.

    It's amazing to me how much faster everything feels. Even downloading apps on wifi, browsing around. Using ADW EX to help with my habit of swiping up to launch the app tray. Just great. Working on optimizing the look of my homescreen.

    hmmm. The problem seems to be Opera mini browser. Flash isn't playing in it, but works fine with android browser.

    Just messing around with widgets and stuff. Netflix streams smoothly. Random glitches in some apps.

    No random pauses at all.

    I'm loving Dolphin hd btw. Beautiful browsing experience. Torn between it and opera, but it really is worth trying.

    The gesture button is awesome too. I tap it and draw a quick g and poof, and google loads up.

    Yeah, I love Dolphin HD's interface but it's a shame that it uses the same renderer as stock.

    this is pretty much exactly like my phone except everything fits on one screen lol. i dont think ill be using webos at all anymore. even with with sometimes not being able to wake up from sleep and other little problems here and there, i enjoy the experience way better than webos. but im biased since ive been using android for a year and a half now.

    Definitely nothing wrong with the stock renderer (the WebOS one actually has some problems like how text can randomly have a split in it).

    Opera simply performs a lot better being GPU accelerated =)


    Interestingly enough, since I can put icons on my homescreen and have a quicklaunch bar that's always there, task switching is actually just as fast on Android compared to WebOS.

    With widgets, I don't really need cardview either and holding home to bring up a quickswitch screen isn't any slower than pressing the home button then swiping around.

    Flinging cards away is really neat (and I never get tired of the Angry Birds sound easter egg) but never having to close any apps is actually even nicer.

    No reports of bricks and much fun to be had, my installation fingers are getting twitchy.

    Opera feels faster and smoother. I love the preview tabs.

    I posted this fix in the main "other tablets" forum, but, the "sleep of death" bug seems to be fixed by changing your minimum CPU speed to at least 384 mhz or higher.

    For some reason android on touchpad is having a hard time waking up from 192mhz. Make the change, save it, and you're golden . I've been running awhile with sleep and wake cycles with no issues. Prior to making this fix, I must have hard booted my touchpad half a dozen times thanks to this bug this morning. CPU master free can adjust it (and can crank up your max speed as well, if you feel like overclocking).


    As for browser discussion, yes, Opera -is- a bit faster than dolphin. Really I like them both, they are extremely nice. Opera mobile does score a bit better on sunspider, and a stopwatch test shows it doing the job a bit faster. I'm not complaining either way though - both of these browsers are better than the stock touchpad webOS browser that can't even DISPLAY text properly, let alone reflow it .

    Nah, no worries about bricking - it's basically impossible on the touchpad (there's essentially nothing you can do that a trip to webos doctor can't fix).

    Give it a go - but at least for this alpha version do remember to crank the cpu min-speed up a hair in android or you'll experience the "sleep of death" which certainly feels like bricking (the touchpad becomes unresponsive, black screened, and you have to do a hard reset by holding power/home for a long time then tapping power a second time - highly annoying).

    I actually ran the PinballHD game for Tegra devices and it works really well.

    BTW, care to give a walkthrough of how exactly you reach this end-result home screen? It's busy but I like the way it looks - what apps are you using? A basic list of steps for those of us new to android?

    Do it dude, don't be afraid.

    I told myself I would wait until a more stable release came out, then I figured what the hell.
