    The guys of the Cyanogenmod team have progressed further in their quest to cram Android onto the HP Touchpad. Apparently, they have been able to get 3D graphics acceleration to work, as well as both cores of the 1.5GHz Snapdragon CPU. Here's a quote from the SlashGear article with a few more details,
    The modding team's goal is to make the tablet able to dual-boot between Android and webOS. There is no word on a potential time-frame to completion, but they have committed to only release the port when it is finished. Check out the video above of some of the games and HD video in action.

    For what it's worth, he does say in the video the battery driver is working. I thought that meant correct battery reporting?

    That's one of the best videos I've seen demonstrating progress on a device. Must donate immediately!

    The msm8660 is actually rated for 1.5ghz, but HP factory downclocked it to 1.2.
