PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless What happens when that "new gadget smell" wears off, though? The honeymoon effect with your new, heavily-discounted device wears off and you're left with a tablet that isn't likely to get any better than it is right now unless you do something yourself. The Preware community already has a nice collection of things you can do to play with any WebOS device, but even that has its limits. So, what are you to do with that shiny new tablet? Well, eventually, you'll be able to put Android on it.

Precisely what I had hoped for...

So, this was basically what I was hoping would happen (and why I gambled on the discounted TouchPads).

I'm actually hoping first that WebOS will continue to be maintained - since I gather it's quite nice. I think we'll see a huge influx of developers and software support for WebOS in the very near term.

However, having Android as a fallback solution is everything I hoped for ;)

Bonus points if they figure out how to dual-boot it!

Gingerbread is nice, but hopefully it will soon be even better when/if Google releases Icecream Sandwich to the public as they promised.

What reason would Google have for not releasing the source code to the public?
