    HP TouchPad Gets More Green With Latest Cyanogenmod Fixes.

    HP TouchPad Gets More Green With Latest Cyanogenmod Fixes.

    The race to get the TouchPad up and running with the latest and greatest version of Android and fully functional to boot got another couple of checkboxes marked off this weekend. The talented Cyanogenmod developers whipped up a video showcasing the TouchPad’s newly added features compliments of Cyanogenmod 7: unctional WiFi, access to the Android Market, audio (albeit a bit fast) and an operational accelerometer.

    Can't wait till ICS is out.
    HTC Sensation, HP TouchPad, iPod touch 4th generation ...

    they might better hurry. The longer I use my TP, the less I feel a need to change (or dual boot)

    If you feel that way now, I sure hope ICS bring some killer features, as 3.0 was ok, droid maybe does but TP multitasks like a pro.

    Once you get used to the TP swipe multitasking and effortless switching for me droid didn't lol, I should ad I had a Xoom.

    Even the poor old iPad 2 has been gathering dust....

    I have no intention of usjng android on my TP. This os with the card system, gestures and multitasking is so much better. This comes from a galaxy tab owner/user which has not been turned on since I got my TP.

    All I want is swype on the WebOS and I'm happy. No need for Android.
    Rnp and Typo Lad like this.

    I'm getting fed up of trying to swipe up from the bottom on my SGS we need card functionality in android.

    but yeah I would love SWYPE on webOS

    Cyanogenmod is a whole different animal than stock Android. While I would easily pick webOS over ICS, Cyanogenmod does stuff with gestures and mutli-tasking that make installing it (at least as a double boot) a no brainier to me.

    Has anyone seen ICS running on a tablet? I looked for some videos or otherwise and there really isn't much for me to get excited about. Actually, I guess that is my problem with Android...not much to get excited about. Android has some interesting hardware optimization, but I still get the impression it was slapped together configuration wise and not quite done OS wise. Maybe ICS will fix this and I can only hope it gets better. Sorli...

    What gestures? My Droid with ADW EX has more gestures going than my TouchPad.

    Beating a dead horse...

    People confuse multitasking with task switching. Yes, cards are a pretty nice way to have a visual of currently running apps. But not every card is actually at work. No loading websites in the background for example.

    Some people will say: the card is loading the website, just not rendering it. Than what's the point of the card?

    I can backup my SMS in the background while surfing around on my phone. Which is not to say that you can't do this with webOS. The point is that you can on Android.

    Regardless, looking forward to this on the TP. It looks like it'll be super fast. Kind of hoping for dual boot. Seems like it'd be safer that way.

    what really impresses me is that video is done on a single core which itself is being tied up by an audio bug - once they get both cores running (which I believe they already have) and other bugs straight... this is going to be one fast android device...

    Yes, it's kind of amazing how far they've come in such little time. I imagine that ICS will take even less time once they get CM7 worked out.

    No need for Android.
    I agree!

    As an Android "nub", what is ICS, and how does it differ from Cynogenmod?

    I am just not seeing the whole Android appeal vs WebOS vs Apple. There is large app market. That would be cool and Netflix. Besides that..... What is the appeal?

    Ummm CM7's multitasking is no different to stock Android aka ugly as sin.

    Well, a web browser that works better, a PDF reader that is usable, a *lot* more options, settings and customisations possible, a future, ... Etc ...

    I assume we're talking about switching between tasks here, rather than applications running in parallel, but I agree in that one of the interesting things I've found since getting the Touchpad is that although switching is actually quicker on Android (a hold and a tap vs a swipe, another couple of swipes perhaps, and a tap) it's far more satisfying and intuitive on the Touchpad.

    It would be great, though, if we could use a gesture to swipe sideways between running apps on the Touchpad.

    You used to be able to do this on webOS 2.* and below, but with the removal of the gesture area from the Touchpad...it went away.
