android over webos?

Has anyone successfully done this? my sister has an hp touchpad abd wants me to install android as a dual boot. after reading about it im honestly scared to do it. I consider myself a skilled rooter and rom installer, but i have only worked with android. never webos.

So i ask, it it easy? what are the options if I brick? how easy is it to brick and recover? I would like to get it done for her, but I dont want to break her stuff in the process.

Downloading Music?

How is it possible to download music on the damn WebKit browser?I try holding the Orange key and clicking the link but it gives me 3 options, Open New Card, Share Link, & Open In New Browser. I have plenty of songs in my email that I cant download onto the phone & this is really annoying.Sometimes I wish I stayed with the 850 Palm Pro, atleast it has Microsoft Word & a PDF viewer/editor, plus the ability to download **** when I wanna download ****.

Thanks to the amazing people at Webosinternals, we can now play doom on our palm pre! Just DL the plugin, and webos 1.3.5, and you're set!. If it's THAT easy for the phone to run script, I wonder if the ported version of FCEUX that requires atleast 10 minutes of nerd work just to run (which negates even having it...if I've got 30 min to kill, I don't wanna spend half of that running scripts via terminal, and I just wanna play some mario)Then we compile the scripts and use a deamon to run those scripts...if that would work and finally have a functional and easy emulator for the pre. ANYWAY, if anyone wants to work with me to try and port fceux (an nes emulator) to the palm pre, PLEASE let me know. Thanks

A flexible keyboard is a surprising creation being x'mas gift

A flexible keyboard is a surprising creation being x'mas gift, yet it's more practical than you think. A flexible keyboard is a perfect gift for someone who spends a lot of time on the Internet, especially people who enjoy online games. People tend to eat and drink a lot in front of their computers, and naturally, spills and accidents tend to happen. With a flexible keyboard, the cleanup is super easy and safe.i bought one from sinamalls,This thing is dirt cheap. And I particularly like using it at night,because without making a noise when i type.

Verizon's America's Choice Plan--i think i was tricked. Can i get back on it?

I had America's Choice from 2003-2009. At the beginning of 2009 I did not upgrade my phone, but I received an offer for the Nationwide plan. I asked the CSR if what is the difference and he said, nothing really. In fact it's better, data is now $1.99/MB. I rarely used data on my Kyocera 7135, but under AC I think I had data coming out of my minutes of use. Well, recently, my kid was playing with my phone and clicked onto the data and come to find out that I'm being charged $0.015/kb (or, $15.36/MB when you factor $0.015 x 1024 kb = 1 MB @ $15.36).

I called VZW and they said that since I have a PDA phone, I cannot receive the $1.99/MB rate. I feel totally duped!

What can I do? Is there any way to get back on the America's Choice calling...

Enable dev mode

So the palm team went old school when throwing the palm into dev mode. It's all over the web, so I wanted to make sure phonescoopers have it too. simply type upupdowndownleftrightleftrightbastart and it enables dev mode. Through this you can use email to dl apps to the pre and to your classic emulator so you can do things like tether and create your own apps. Just be careful when rooting, cause if you brick the're sol. Unless you have webos dr. and then you're good to go! Cool

Palm pre

I watched the video on the new products that apple presented today and if i was a iphone owner i will be upset the prices keep changing constantly from 600,300 to now 99 for a phone i just purchased. But anyway 3G S sounds corny but its the same exact phone as the 3G just with an S for slower than the pre. A voice recg how long has that been out okayyy,video rec hmm i guess after 3 phones u think and what i always wanted a compass WOW really apple and guess what its still on ATT that sucks.To all my iphone users stop hating on the pre yeah it may not have as much apps as the iphone but how long has it been out i thought so and Sprint has the most exceptional plans and more bang for your BUCK service so to all my fellow Pre holders ignore the...

TRE 755P, worke great with Palm GPS car kit

I have been reading about problems with Palm GPS car kit 3262NA .
I tried before with Treo 700wx but it did not work. When I got my new phone, I did not expect it to work because it is not listed in the Kit papers but I was surprised it worked right away without any problems.

Just thought it might be good to let others know.

Need help with Treo 755P before I get it activated

Hello everyone,
I just joined this great forum and look forward to get help and to be helpful as well.
Currently I have Treo 700wx active and just got the 755P and starting exploring it before I get it activated. It has its pluses and negatives compared to 700 and the annoying thing that it does not have a browser and still I am not sure about email.
Can some help me to find if it can be used for email and messaging w/o a data plan? If so I will go ahead and activate it because I cannot buy a data plan.
Your help and advice will be greatly appreciated
