    has anyone had any experience with this device or is able to help me out,?

    im relatively new to WebOS and although i have liked it, the lack of apps is forcing me to want dual boot with android.

    considering virtually no1 has one then im guessing the general public at large here wont be of much use, same applies to the android forums.

    My advice is don't put ICS on it - it's a collectors item. Just appreciate it for what it is, or sell it to someone who will (hint hint!)

    can't help with the dual boot, but would be interested in purchasing! :-)

    PM me if interested. Thanks!

    Get straight onto 'God' Whitby or TopTongueBarry here.. I think they've both been tweaking and messing around with getting 'GO's' recognised by HP/Palm as webOS 'devices' at least??

    And beware everyone trying to get you to SELL it to them instead!!

    Unless you port the kernel yourself, you won't get ics on it.

    I'd suggest you sell it to someone here who wants to run webOS on it.

    It's tempting at the idea of buying it from you, a 7 inch device with back camera(want one of those!) However, the smaller size kind of tablet isn't not much interest in me particularly. Instead will be more interesting to purchase will be to get my hands on, on the mystical White TouchPad with the 64GB capacity model and faster processor speed. Unfortunately, HP cancelled all WebOS hardware right when that model suppose to come to the public market a few months later after the black TouchPad went on sale.

    I think the 'faster processor speed' of the white 64Gb TP is merely an unchoked version of the 16 & 32Gb Black version's Qualcom unit. In other words the 'slower' processor was only an undersclocked version of the same unit, essentially allowing HP to offer an apparent UPgrade for more $'s!!
    I also think we will see the smaller 'fits in your pocket' format Tablet/Phones becoming more and more popular as screen resolution improves and as they are truly more 'portable'.
