Multitouch Enabled for HP Touchpad Sporting 2.3.5
You may remember a little less than a month ago that the HP Touchpad went on a massive sale world wide. It is loaded with WebOS but at a very attractive $99 to $150 a piece, or I should say it was loaded with WebOS. Yesterday, we got a tip from XDA Senior moderator pulser_g2 that not only did TouchDroid team get multitouch working on the pad, which was based on the original incomplete work on a single-touch driver which was developed by jonpry and green– at Cyanogenmod, but also that it was running the latest iteration of Gingerbread… 2.3.5. The port is still being worked on and there is no release out there yet or ETA, but they did post a video of the device running a rather smooth port of the OS. In this video, the team also showed the device being capable of recognizing multiple touch points.. up to 10. Android devices seem to share several hardware components with this pad, so finishing the port should simply be a matter of time once everything is put in place and all the trees that contain useful bits are lumped together.
Again, keep in mind that the port is in initial stages and it has not even been officially released by the team. However, for you lucky owners of this device, you will likely be getting an early Christmas gift.
