HP Releases Android Kernel For TouchPad

You may remember that during the HP TouchPad fire sale, a few slates slipped out with a primitive Android Froyo build on them. Well, HP doesn’t seem to know how the tablets hit shelves with Android on board, but its decided to release the source code for the OS. Devs had previously called on the company to hand over the code, but the request was refused since HP had never intended for TouchPads to ship them with Android, so they didn´t were obligated to concede by the open-source requirements.

As a gesture of goodwill to the community, I would say more for a certain amount of pressure from it, Hewlett Packard webOS has reversed course and let the TouchPad specific kernel to appear on the Internet for Devs to play with making their lives easier when developing for that device.

You may remember our previous articles regarding the Touchpad, when it was on sale for a cheap price, then when we discussed about WebOS future and later on when the first Android ports arrived. Long before this announcement thanks to XDA Devs a lot of work has been done and you can even enjoy of a CyanogenMod on it.

Do you have a Touchpad?, if so would you install this kernel on it?, please leave your comments and thanks for reading.

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too.
