Developers are making progress on the Android - TouchPad front almost daily, and the next major hurdle has been crossed(aside from getting Android to boot, of course) -- the touchscreen. For the past few weeks, devs have been spending countless hours trying to get the multitouch display to work properly with Android, and that feat was achieved earlier today.

Like I said, this is the first of many issues that need to be fixed, but it's a great start nonetheless.

    Great news, thanks for the hard work!

    Still have to get my hands on one of those. I was one of the guys that got caught in the OnSale debacle, and that was after going to four separate retailers and having Best Buy cancel my order online.
