My new HP Android Touchpad

So my touchpad that I ordered August 21st arrived two days ago. The delay was due to HP running out during the fire sale.

I played with Web OS (the default operating system) for a day. I planned on installing Android ASAP. Lucky for me that day was today!

The install process was extremely easy. The Android ROM flavor (Gingerbread) was made possible by a team known as Cyanogenmod.

I've been using Cyanogenmod ROMS for years.

My first experience with Cyanogenmod was with my T-Mobile G1. I later installed Cyanogenmod on my Nexus One and am patiently waiting to install it on my Thunderbolt.

Android on the Touchpad isn't perfect....but it's pretty good and I am happier using it over Web OS.

The main reason for getting the Touchpad (aside from it being super cheap) was for Natali.

She's been using touch screens since she was 3 months old. She is used to them.

Natali's new game is from Baby First called Peek-A-Boo I See You!

A little baby comes on the screen then hides behind one of three objects. The baby sticks out a hand or foot to give a hint as too where he is. Natali is very good at it.

I truly think when Natali goes to school she will be issued a tablet over a book. Lucky for her she will be used to touch screen and tablets by then.
