HP Releases Android for TouchPad

In a move that was either kindness or a mistake, it appears that HP has released their own Android Kernel for the HP Touchpad.  Of course, Android has been ported to the TouchPad already, but there have been some bugs and hardware issues.  With the version just released by HP, these are resolved and now with the source code available, you can expect better things from the community in terms of support.  Nicely done.

It's worth noting that releasing this is not something HP had to do - while those that ship Android devices are required by the licensing terms to release the kernel to open source, HP's release was accidental and thus open sourcing was not required - this release can be chalked up to goodwill, even if resulting from being pressured into doing it.
