06 TouchDroidIt’s been awhile since we’ve kept you updated on the progress that the TouchDroid team has been making since they managed to get Android to boot on the HP TouchPad. Well it seems that today, the group has managed to get the touchscreen working on the tablet! Previously they were only able to boot Android on the device but now, so the touchscreen – one of the biggest challenges the team had to overcome is now working on the tablet.

In fact, it seems to be working very well – it’s responsive, and it can even support up to 10 simultaneous touch inputs at once, which is pretty exciting. No word on whether the rest of the device will be compatible with Android (i.e. the WiFi radio, GPS, etc) but it looks like the TouchDroid team is making some pretty good progress. Check out the video of it in action:
