Anyone else get one of the insanely cheap HP tablets? I got one, didn't really need it, but couldn't resist it for $99. And it does take a load off my computers I use for editing. I like it. The problem is I have had Mac eveything for like a decade so I don't know any tricks or how to install anything (Andriod?) as far as a new OS (HP has no apps). Any wiz kids?

Its actually not Android, its HP's WebOS which they have now completely scrapped. I didnt realize they dropped to $99. I dont know anything else about them though.

I understand the WebOS (I actually kinda like it) but I was talking about homebrew(?), or a third party OS. I guess Android for touchpad is in development. The problem is HP has no apps and is defunct so I want to download something that will still have developers.

I'm not sure if this is kind of like what you had in mind, but maybe this will help until Android is available.
