We have talked at length about the HP TouchPad. I think we will all agree that the TouchPad was a miserable failure and there is no real future in the market for the OS on a tablet. Many people have been working to get Android up and running on the TouchPad. Yesterday, we talked about a new way to get Android on the TouchPad.
HP is reportedly investigating allegations made by some TouchPad buyers that the tablets arrived and had Android on them right out of the box. HP claims that it never approved Android to ship on the tablet and says that the tablets did not leave manufacturing with Android onboard.
HP apparently suspects that the tablets were grabbed and Android was installed after they left the manufacturing facility. It seems odd since the TouchPad is dead that HP would go through an investigation. Still, I am sure the company wants to know who changed its products to be sure it happens nowhere else.
