I'm going to try to jump on this when it sold for 99. Is this easy to port Android on? I know how to root phones so hopefully its not too much different.

Not sure but I think it takes a couple of days because they have to deposit money into your bank account to confirm it. IDK, I may be wrong 'tho... only way to find out is to just set it up now.



Also, how the hell do you put the Android on here? I've had mine and just have been waiting (thinking it would be big news when it happened so I'd hear about it) but I've heard nothing about it and just thought that they forgot about the Touchpad.

easy as hell, they have a step by step guide on xda-developers.com or rootzwiki.com

and android works nice, but I honestly prefer webos

I want to dual boot it. Mostly for the apps on android. If I can get this I more than likely will flip it after adding android to it.

HP employees get first go at it and if there are any left they will be on the ebay..So who knows how many there will be.
Hmm...so the sh*t at 7 tomorrow is for the employees? That's what the slickdeal link says...

Says sale will be available to public Monday

So can we get it Sunday or Monday

The product offer will be announced to the general public on Monday morning and is expected to sell-out quickly thereafter, so don't delay.

No and no. There's no restriction on their Ebay site and employees can't buy them any other way than through Ebay, just like everyone else. It doesn't say it will be available to the public on Monday, it says it will be announced to the public on Monday. Only HP employees were supposed to see this e-mail in advance, that's how they intended to give the employees a jump on the public. Obviously, now that the e-mail has leaked, the employees aren't gonna get any jump on the public if HP still goes with their original plan.

Anyone doubting this don't be fu*king stupid, root it and OC it.

The thing is a goddamn beast.

EDIT-

I can't stress this enough, ROOT it and OVERCLOCK it, takes minutes and once overclocked it will be running 1.9ghz, which is almost a ghz faster then the ipad, once rooted you can put whatever the fu*k you want on it.


You won't get them new unless people held on theirs without opening because HP doesn't make these anymore, besides you can get $150-200 on craigslist EASY.


Why would anyone want a camera on a tablet? it's a tablet.. your phone takes pictures and i a.ssume you have a digital camera so why the fu*k would you want it? you gonna pull out a tablet in public to take a picture?

as for the market place.. root it and put the android marketplace on it and it will be a full blown android tablet and OC it, for the average consumer that is computer illiterate there will be minor drawbacks but with anyone that is purchasing one of these with a decent IQ knows to root and OC it, it's 600 cheaper then an ipad and 2x faster.
Any tutorials on how to root and overclock it? Definitely going to be in for at least one, was looking for a laptop for the family for christmas, this may be a better option.
