HP TouchPad spotted with Android

HP TouchPad's are hard to come by at the best of times, imagine how rare a HP TouchPad with Android would be then. Apparently they do exist, and they've been cropping up on eBay.

Reports have come in of several HP TouchPad's that have been found to be running Android 2.2 FroYo, not webOS as was expected. These tablets, which have been bought from eBay, are believed to be prototype testing units.

At present two units have surfaced, both carrying applications and software which points towards them being Qualcomm owned TouchPad's that were being used to presumeably test out the TouchPads capabilities. In a series of videos the two owners run through the features found onboard which includes a vanilla version of Android 2.2 and a series of advanced testing programs designed to test the screen and the processor.

HP's TouchPad has been a runaway success ironically after it was scrapped, with prices reaching as low as £90 for the 16GB version. HP has currently reported that while the tablet is now currently sold out in the UK after what was essentially a firesale, there would be more stock heading to the UK.
