angry tapir writes "HP is investigating how several TouchPads reportedly shipped to end users running Android, instead of webOS. Shortly after HP announced it would stop selling TouchPads and began offering the remaining tablets for US$99, reports surfaced from a few users who say they received TouchPads that run Android instead of HP's webOS software. At the same time, developers have been working on porting Android to the TouchPad, since it's uncertain how much support and development HP will dedicate to webOS in the future."

HP investigates Android TouchPads

  • I find it rather disturbing that a company like HP can "accidentally" ship a product running an OS that was never intended for release, if they can ship TouchPads running Android rather than WebOS who's to say they can't accidentally ship PCs or servers with undetected rootkits? If something as obvious as a completely different operating system can slip through the cracks then surely a small rootkit wont have any trouble?
