CyanogenMod has come up with a new video which should allay the fears of those eagerly awaiting to see Android taking over their TouchPads. The good news is that there is some positive developments to be seen in that respect. The TouchPad, with some tweaking from CyanogenMod, is now exhibiting much better mannerisms than ever before. Among the TouchPad features that have come alive include Wi-Fi, basic audio, accelerometer, along with some amount of support for the Google Android Market as well.
However, not everything is working to their potential as yet, though the hard work put in by the CyanogenMod team is bearing some fruit at least. One thing that the team is trying hard to achieve is to unleash the power of both the cores of the 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon dual core CPU that the TouchPads come equipped with. At present, only one of the cores is active, while a mediaserver app has been found to be taking up the lions share of the CPU cycles.
We hope to have further good news on this front soon, though TouchPad running the Android OS in all its glory does seem to be quite some way off.
