    Android gaming on the HP TouchPad – video - Liliputing

    The team of developers working to bring Android to the HP TouchPad tablet have come a long way in just a few weeks. Heck, they’ve come a long way in just a few days. Last time we heard from CyanogenMod, the developers had managed to get WiFi working when you use Android on the HP TouchPad, and audio was still a work in progress.

    There are some people working on that over at XDA, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

    Also, this is looking amazing already. I am giddy waiting for them to release CM7 and cannot wait to see how quickly they port ICS after it drops.

    Ah, I missed that. Someone associated with the game on reddit said that would be fixed on the next update.

    According to Cypress the Touchpad screen manufacturer, HP and Qualcomm were using Android to load WebOS onto the Touchpad. They then deleted the Android partition. Weird, questionable, but possibly true.

    Android on TouchPad is a double edged sword.

    With the door open to use Android apps on the TouchPad it'll be the death-knell to native TouchPad apps. As users flock to buy Android apps, TP apps will be ignored - devs will leave webOS and it will die.

    The TP doesn't need HP to kill it - the users will.

    Bigger issue is it looked like there was a button(s) cut off too.

    The missing parts of the screen is because of the resolution. The Touchpad has a lower resolution than most Android tabs, which usually run 1200*800 instead of the 1024*768 on the Touchpad. It's not a huge deal, most Android games support a resolution of 800*480, so it can always be knocked down or tweaked...

    I'm not blaming anyone - it's natural selection at work

    I'm not concerned about a dwindling developer base, as a developer I'm concerned about a dwindling user base.

    True, but a properly coded Android app should be able to cope with a change in screen resolution like this. Google is putting a real big push into getting apps properly set up for when ICS drops:

    I doubt that the number of Touchpad users geeky and knowledgeable enough to a) want to install Android and b) willing to jump through the hoops will be even a sizeable minority.

    I really don't see the majority of Touchpad users 'flocking' to buy Android apps. You'll see a lot of it here on the forums of course, but most people will be perfectly happy with their Touchpads as supplied.

    It's that majority you need to target with new webOS developments.

    Also, surely a dual boot into Android can be compared to providing a SCUMM virtual machine, or n64 emulation or an Infocom interpreter, particularly if we're talking about games as in this thread? It's threatening because it's on a grander scale, but essentially you're just extending the capabilities of the device. Nobody is decrying the efforts to provide those other emulators.

    Cool. Good to know.
