CyanogenMod 9 Alpha 0 Makes Its Way to the HP TouchPad

Despite the incorporation of tablet tweaks into CyanogenMod 7, the Android 2.3 Gingerbread-based ROM simply isn't ideal for use with the larger and higher-resolution screens seen on tablets. That's why deep down, we've all been pining for the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich goods to make their way to the HP TouchPad tablet for quite...

Moving Forward with Hewlett Packard’s GPL Violation

The last time we talked about HP, I presented more evidence that the four known Touchpad devices purchased running Android 2.2 came directly from HP’s production line.  Since then, Green, a kernel developer for the Cyanogenmod Touchpad team, was busy working with Ben Maskell of the law firm Roetzel & Andress.  Ben Maskell contacted us...

Rumors are flying about HP and their potential GPL violation by not releasing the source code of the Android kernel sold on three Touchpads so far.  Many of them are speculation, much of it over-hyped, but the fact that we speculate points to how many questions go unanswered and how much interest there is in...

Congratulations HP! You Broke the Code (GPL,That Is)!

There were tons of mixed emotions when HP returned to the mobile scene with their latest installment by their newly acquired partner in crime, Palm. The HP Touchpad, which comes loaded with webOS may appeal to some people due to certain features such as the $99 price tag that it came with. However, the biggest...

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...
