We finally have on our hands a decent solution for bringing Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to the HP TouchPad and one that works pretty well, as proved by the video below. I’m talking about the already famous CyanogenMod 9, that was recently demoed on the HP tablet that was seen as deceased last autumn by many.
Part of a fire sale with a price tag of $100 and canceled as a product line, the TouchPad was still deemed viable by most people who played with it, especially if it had some other OS on board. In the video below we see Android 4.0 blooming on the slate, with everything working just fine. Only the video playback and camera have issues right now, but I can see that games such as Angry Birds are working, the general UI is fine and there’s even a live wallpaper that functions perfectly.
I’m still expecting a public release of CyanogenMod 9 for the TouchPad, so that the people who bought this slate can finally take advantage of their toys to the full extent. Would you still buy one now?
