TouchDroid Project for the TouchPad Announced

If you were lucky enough to snag a TouchPad (or two, maybe three) during HP’s fire sale this past weekend, then you might want to check out TouchDroid, the ambitious project to port Android to the forsaken webOS tablet. Since Google has yet to open source Honeycomb, the team is starting with an AOSP Gingerbread build, but will move on to a CyanogenMod based build to speed up development, later upgrading to Ice Cream Sandwich when it is released.

The project is still just an idea at this point, so don’t expect any beta builds for some time, but it’s great to see someone breathing new life into the device.
