While most of us may never see a brand new HP TouchPad again, those lucky few of you who managed to snag one up for $99 will be glad to know that even if webOS doesn’t receive any official updates in the future, your tablet will be in safe hands. There’s already a port of Android for the tablet that’s in development, and now it looks like it will be able to run MeeGo too.
The folks over at MeeGo Experts recently posted a video online showing the HP TouchPad booting up into what appears to be MeeGo 1.3 Community Edition. While it does look convincing, there are a few points to ponder – the video is short, it basically shows the tablet starting up and the MeeGo 1.3 CE logo appear on screen, and the video ends after that – we don’t even catch a glimpse of the operating system at all.
Now, I’m not outright claiming that the video is a fake or trying to discredit anybody – but judging by the video footage, it might as well have been a video clip of the booting sequence played in fullscreen on the HP TouchPad. There’s really no way to prove its authenticity, but here’s to hoping the port is a successful one and TouchPad users get to enjoy MeeGo goodness on their tablets. Check it out for yourself:
