    CM Delivers 10-Point Multitouch to the HP TouchPad


    Team-Touchdroid has put the “touch” back in TouchPad with the creation of a set of Android drivers delivering 10-point multitouch to the bargain basement tablet. Though efforts have been earnest in getting a fully functional Android port over to the slate, the introduction of functional multitouch marks a significant advancement for those wishing to replace the abandoned webOS software found on the TouchPad with something a bit more green. We’re still waiting for the whole thing to be neatly packaged into an easily installable ROM, but progress takes time

    The CyanogenMod team says they took credit for code CM wrote. As far as I can tell the cm team doesn't seem like they would lie about something like that.

    I dont really care who wrote the code - I just want a working port for my TP.
    It's great news that they have the touchscreen drivers working... hopefully they sort out the power issues real soon and get something resembling a true alpha out to testers by the weekend.

    Jeez, more of a reason for me wanting one. Too bad they're sold out everywhere I go!

    I knew I shouldn't have listened to my wife when she said we didn't need one.

    Sadly, HP sent out emails saying that the orders they couldn't reach before are the first to get them from the new batch that's coming up.

    I know that Engadget isn't going to update their post- but we should at least. This isn't "Team Touchdroid"s work, it's the CM team. Someone fix this post?
