The HP TouchPad could have a new life as an Android tablet if a band of dedicated developers pull off their new project. TouchDroid is a plan to port Android to the HP TouchPad and open up the Android Market on the tablet. The team of four (Thomas Sohmers, Frankie F, John Hale and Jacob Bell) has already got a website up touting for donations to the cause and has outlined how they plan to turn the webOS device into a member of the Android army.
To start with, the TouchDroid project is aiming to get Android Gingerbread up and running on the HP TouchPad but has its sights set on jumping to Android Honeycomb soon and even getting Android Ice Cream Sandwich onboard once the combined tablet/smartphone OS emerges.
