For those seeing the marriage of the TouchPad and Android as a match made in heaven, the moment has arrived…sort of. The CyanogenMod team has released an alpha build of their Android ROM for the HP slate. That’s the good news. The bad news? The CM7 build will have little use to any but the most hardcore modders out there. Or those who are gluttons for mildly functional software.
Sure, the release has working WiFi, camera, Bluetooth, Netflix, and supports the system’s dual-core CPU, but the list of non-functional assets is so lengthy the folks at Cyanogen didn’t even bother to list them. The above video should give you a taste of what you can expect.
