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.
