Yet again, the webOS tablet, which sold in droves after it was pronounced dead and buried, has become the subject of Internet talks, this time due to the impending support for Ice Cream Sandwich.
It was not unknown that people were working on an unofficial Android 4.0 port for HP's TouchPad tablet, which run webOS by default.
Still, since the CyanogenMod team actually got far enough that they were able to put up a promo video, it was obvious that some attention would be drawn.
CyanogenMod 9 is a customized version of the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system that Google released last year.
Android 4.0 was especially optimized for tablets that lack all the standard Android buttons, even more so than Android 3.0 (Honeycomb).
That said, the new promo video shows the koi live wallpaper, Wi-Fi and even the Angry Birds game demo working just fine.
What's more, video playback is reportedly
working as well, even though the video says it still doesn't (the breakthrough was achieved after the teaser was released).
One thing that still doesn't work is the front-facing camera, but it shouldn't be long before this, and all other hurdles and bugs, were overcome.
For those interested in some background, the TouchPad webOS tablet form HP was officially in the tablet game for six weeks.
After that, it was sacked along with most other webOS projects, but the tale of the undying slate did not end there.
The company's decision to get rid of its existing supply by selling TouchPads at super-low prices
ended up putting the item in the lead of the non-iPad tablet segment
Now that there are thousands of TouchPads out there, people are doing their best to replace webOS with Android, hence the diligence of the CyanogenMod team.
Watch the video below for a glimpse of what is to come.
