    Recently, i felt as if i weren't giving my hp touchpad enough love, compared to things like my iPad and kindle fire(custom ROM, not stock).
    I want to sue it more often, so i ask of you tempers with a touchpad, What can i do with my Hp touchpad?

    If you prefer the kindle fire, there's not much you can do with an HP Touchpad, except maybe more intensive gaming.
    You have two of the same thing, except one has a bigger screen.

    Ah, I assumed you already had android installed on it. You may like it better than the Kindle fire, it outperforms it and has a bigger screen. Yeah, give it a try! Go for the cm9 nightlies.

    It varies from person to person, I guess. I flash new nightlies as they come and I've never had any problems, but some do. People are saying that the 9/21 build is pretty perfect. (The nightlies aren't even nightlies anymore, they come out whenever there's a important thing changed, which is rare. It's about as good as it can get until camera is fixed.)

    The bugs are that the camera still doesn't work, but dalingrin and the other CM9 developers almost have it fixed.

    Right behind you
    Wow, I can't believe somebody still uses webos :)


    The WiFi works, it can just be a little finnacky. If it doesn't connect, fiddle with your router settings until there's a channel, etc it likes.

    Only app that hasn't worked for me is pac man ce.

    Otherwise, sometimes you have to boot into webos to charge - I've heard this has been fixed lately though, I haven't updated in a while.

    i still love my touchpad, i use it for ebooks, videos, mails and the occasional websearch without standing up to go to the pc.
    and after the cm9 megafail (some hardware like gps and sound not working and some google software always crashing), i removed all android.
    i have to admit, i do miss the android acrobat reader, but that is all.
