    I got a 32gb for 150 at walmart today. Hoping the guys at XDA get a good port soon.

    WebOS is slick and all, but there's not many apps and no netflix.

    end of line...

    There are a few over on Rootzwiki working on a gingerbread port for now ( since HC isn't released to public yet).

    I read the CM team member who ported it to the nook is working on this as well. I'll take GB for now.

    GB will be fine, and soon enough google will release hc and ics, then I'm sure someone will still be up for the challenge.

    Its good becayse the hp tp runs off linux, so the kernals/bootloader should be a non issue.

    Edit: and most of their stuff is opened up.

    Just picked one up and am excited, paid more than the special but a lot less than the retail price. haha Sad to see this go, theys hould have given it a year or so and just pushed android / product out, they had so much in advertising seems like a waste but hey one mans trash is another hacks....well you get the idea.

    Just heard from a friend there might be more available online soon as the site hasn't unlocked them yet so if you missed out you may still get lucky.

    What exactly is a port though? And how would a port from android be beneficial.

    It would mean successfully installing android operating system and essentially turning the touchpad into an android tablet.

    Would you be able to download apps from the android market as well. I know that's one thing the touchpad is lacking in.

    Thanks for your explanation.

    You would be able to do anything an android device can do. Including using the market.

    To read more on porting go here http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porting . People like android OS better than the webOS. So they will try to port android to the touchpad.

    Amazon had the 32GB for $149 about 20 minutes ago. My second device on its way! One is going to a buddy in Canada.
