TouchDroid plans to port Android to HP TouchPad

Hewlett-Packard recently announced the drop in the prices of their latest WebOS device – the HP TouchPad and the new $99 price seems to have gone viral, worldwide. The tablet, sporting a 9.7-inch display, dual-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon processor and 16/32 GB of inbuilt memory is definitely a steal for that price. The only reservations people seemed to have so far, that prevented them from buying the product, was the OS. HP hasn’t clearly mentioned what they are intending to do with the WebOS, but the OS’s future definitely looks bleak as compared to the frontrunners, Google and Apple. However, three developers keen on making the most of this brilliantly priced tablet along with a few supporters have launched the TouchDroid project that will ensure that Google’s Android operating system for tablets will work on the HP TouchPad.

HP hasn’t disclosed if they are planning to launch the $99 tablet in India, anytime soon, but if this happens they will definitely have an upper hand against the competition. Have any of you’ll managed to grab the HP TouchPad for that price? Let us know in the comments section below.
