Android CyanogenMod 7 Xron for HP TouchPad

Posted by techhackz-admin Tuesday, November 1, 2011


The latest rumors from HP tells us that WebOS is pretty much dead so it is good to see that some developers are working hard on bringing us Android to the HP TouchPad tablet. While this is only Gingerbread for now, we can expect to see Honeycomb or Ice Cream Sandwich at some point on this device. The CyanogenMod team brought us Android 2.3.7 and now Team Xron released a modified version of CM 7.1 with some tweaks.
