does anyone know if there is any sort of app that can run SL as either text or other on the HP Touchpad?

i think there is a text only app called Mobile Grid Client by Schlager. But it costs something like 400 lidens a month. Not bad though, i used it to stay in touch on my recent trip.

Well, there is a workaround for the HP tablet - HP has abandoned it so there are no WebOS updates, most likely.
But the CynogenModders have a beta out, which works so-so, and are still hard working guys so you get Android on your HP.

Do a google at "HP android cynogen".

I hope you didn't pay a fortune for the Touchpad......once the announcement that they were no longer going to be developed/supported was made, they were being sold for less than £100.00 over here. I hope you got a cheap one.

May or may not ever happen. HP just laid-off most of the WebOS team (503 people, the team is 550).

Even at $99 the HP Touchpad became DOA as soon as HP announced they were dropping it like a hot potato. Great deal for hackers and whackers, but if you're just an "average Joe" - would have been better to save the other $400 and just got an iPad.

only ajaxlife will work, but have to compile it from source and set your own server
