    This is not exactly fresh news, but i did not see a post about it.
    The guys at Cyanogen mods basically confirmed that CM9 aka ICS is coming to touchpads.

    "The first devices (besides the Nexus S, which you can already get from Koush’s section on ROM Manager) that we’ll have ready will mostly likely be devices based on OMAP4, MSM8660/7X30, and Exynos."

    In fact, we may see it sooner than expected, since its chipset is one of the top priority list - MSM8660.
    I am not a fan of Android 2.3, neither 3.1, but seems like ICS would be a nice alternative to webOS on hour hardware. What do you guys think?

    A mostly stable ICS build will cause me to create an Android partition on my TouchPad. It is the first Android version that has interested me.

    This is the version I have been waiting for. I saw no reason to partition my TP to put a phone's OS on it. Between my TP and iPad 2, I'll have the best from WebOS, iOS and Android! Can't wait for CM9!

    Have CM7 A3 atm.. just working into it's rather 'fragmented' set up etc.. BUT CM9 would hopefully be much improved for Tablet operation.. and therefore a potentially awesome (and free App-rich) dual boot accompanyment to our beloved webOS.. yes!

    Highly unlikely to be out in time for a 2011 Xmas pressy.. although it has I believe, at the time of writing, got as far as a (locked) home screen on the TP!

    I really would like to agree with you. I love webOS (the touchpad is my first devise, never had palm).
    I wish HP or somebody else make webOS bigger, so it gets more attention from developers.
    Actually my only problem with it is the browser (downloads).

    We know it's coming because the team who developed CM7 for the touchpad have been posting from CM9 (ICS) on their touchpad - as you'd expect it's very rough at the moment.

    I'm sorry, but this is all funny stuff. I find it humorous that a buddy of mine will likely have more ICS time logged on his TouchPad than he will on his Galaxy S II by the time AT&T gets him the update......

    Exciting.. but not all 'We' may yet have heard this!
    So is the CM7 work already done, going to directly facilitate the porting of CM9?

    Nice!!! I think ICS will be slightly less of a downgrade user-experience wise from webOS than Android 2.3 (CM7). If only they also worked on a CM9 mod for the Pre3...

    I didn't want to try 2.3 on the touchpad, because I have it on my phone. I had the day off work, was bored so I gave it a try.

    The first thing I did was figure out how to make moboot default to webOS. 2.3 does not work well on tablets, too much scaling of the same content. Not a good experience IMO.

    I'll give ICS a try, or would try honeycomb if I thought anyone would put any work into the older version when it will take just as much work for ICS.

    One of the benefits of putting Android on your Touchpad is (for those who are unfamiliar) to learn about Android.

    Interested to hear how ICS 'compares' anyway.

    A couple of apps work well on the Touchpad too, when I say a couple I mean a lot

    Still enjoying leading the charge then?
    Do you like Touchpads? Do you like Android? Do you hate Android but just need an app or two? Do you just like belonging to forums? Try this: http://forums.webosnation.com/android-touchpad/

    Honeycomb never had its source code released and never will, so hc ports are not very good. I would put an alpha of ics on my tp, new stuff is great.

    Honeycomb source was released on 11/14. Same day as ICS source. That's why I said it would be the same amount of work, because the source for both was released simultaneously, so you could build a source build of 3.2 or 4.0. But no one would take that opportunity to build a version old OS, unless you are LG; perpetually one version behind.

    I am not sure of the hardware requirements for both versions but I could see that if they were in anyway substantial that someone might use the older OS for inferior equipment....which the TP is not.
    Patches from Maverickz:
    Various Virtual KB Patches with WORKING ARROW KEYS - Updated for 3.0.5
    CALENDAR PATCHES - ChooseYourSnooze and SetWeekView8am - Updated for 3.0.5

    I also take custom kb layout requests.
