“Contrary to recent rumors, Team TouchDroid is still united and moving forward in achieving its goal of bringing the Android operating system to the HP TouchPad. The group of developers is in the early processes of the project, with many of its members still acquiring their devices.
As devices arrive and the developers begin to formulate a plan of action, disgruntled ex-members seeking to publicize the development process for profit have targeted TouchDroid in order to gain exposure and discredit the original team. However, Team TouchDroid reaffirms that in spite of false claims and slander, it will continue its plans to port Android to the HP TouchPad for the benefit of device owners.
Due to the collaborative, equal-footing nature of the project and its members, an ex-member was found to have claimed himself as the leader through public channels on more than one occasion. Criticized in group discussion for acting contrary to Team TouchDroid’s best interests and claiming more credit than
due, the ex-member chose to publicly slander a TouchDroid member and spread false rumors of the group’s disbanding. He has since been ousted from the group and removed from the team’s development process.
Team TouchDroid united in its cause during the massive buying period caused by HP’s announcement of liquidation prices for the HP TouchPad. Seeing the value of porting the successful Android operating system to the discontinued device, the group of developers began brainstorming and discussion. Initial
plans are to utilize Android 2.3.5 for the beta and, once complete, move on to Honeycomb or its successor at the time of the beta’s completion.
“Team TouchDroid is all about community and bringing out the value of an abandoned product, not about inflating one’s own ego. We will continue this project together as a group because it is worth it, and credit will be given where credit is due,” stated an anonymous Team TouchDroid member.”
