HP TouchPad was once a worthy contender for the tablet market. However, HP’s Leo Apotheker cut it down before it got a chance to prove its worth. Its firesale was a huge success though, and there are plenty of HP TouchPad owner in the market.
HP TouchPad can be converted to Android tablet using CynanogenMod builds. Not perfect, of course. However, with each new iteration, new features are working. Right now, with CynanogenMod 9 and 10, the camera on the HP TouchPad is working.
It’s been a few months since developer Dorregaray released the first custom builds of Android for the HP TouchPad with support for the 9.7 inch tablet’s front-facing camera. Now the camera patch has been incorporated into a number of different versions of Android for the tablet, including a custom build of CyanogenMod 10 (based on Android 4.1) and the official nightly builds of CyanogenMod 9 (Android 4.0).
This is proof that Android is versatile and can be used on other tablets.
