Cyanogenmod Dev team is almost ready with their current project CyanogenMod 9 that is based on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. In a video released by CM Dev team they successfully ported the CM 9 to HP TouchPad. The HP Touch Pad was discontinued because of low sale and HP stops developing the WebOS which is the original OS of the HP tablet.
HP TouchPad found a new life when Android 2.3 Gingerbread was ported to it and Cyanogenmod team started to give support to the dying tablet. The CM 7 update for HP Touchpad was released last September 11, 2011 and users find it satisfactory because of some glitches.
Now, that CM is almost finish with this project, HP TouchPad is given a second life thanks to CM9 though in the test it shows some laggy performance but it is taken and I know that CM Dev team will give their best in improving more Android 4.0 for HP TouchPad. Some of the most important feature is working well like the Wireless and Bluetooth. Games runs smoothly as it runs Angry Bird in the demo. They currently working right on the Video Playback but they are getting there.
When CM say it is coming soon, this means that by couple weeks we can see CM 9 in action not only in TouchPad but in other smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy S II.
So, what do you think HP TouchPad owners are you ready for some Ice Cream Sandwich?
