HP TouchPad getting Ice Cream Sandwich soon, courtesy of CyanogenMod
The Android 2.3 Gingerbread port for the HP TouchPad, courtesy of CyanogenMod, breathed some new life into an otherwise dying tablet. It turned it into a fully working Android slate and blessed it with the multitude of apps available on the Android Market. However, team Cyanogen is not done with the HP TouchPad just yet.

What you will see in the video below is a demonstration of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich working on an HP TouchPad. And for an early build, it runs pretty good, we must say. Almost every single one of the tablet's features are in a working state at this time, with the camera functionality and video playback being the only major things that need to be made functional. Once that gets taken care of, we should expect a CyanogenMod 9 release for the HP TouchPad to be made available for download. And the guys are saying that it likely won't be long until that happens.

Feel free to check out the video below, and if you are not yet familiar with the whole Android on the HP TouchPad concept, check out our dedicated article. Also, the comment section below is at your disposal, so do not hesitate to drop a line and tell us what you think about it.
