From Android Community.  I wonder if this means that the Kindle software could be used with the tablet:

An Android port for the TouchPad has already started and is picking up huge traction over the last 24-48 hours. With it now selling for $99 or $149 at we now have a game of “The Price is Right” and all we need is the Android OS. Over at RootzWiki the project has about 90 pages of interest after a day and a half, they are calling it TouchDroid. While some reports have claimed the hardware was to blame and not the webOS we all are still left wondering. Once we get Android 2.3 Gingerbread, CM7, and eventually Honeycomb running on this thing we’ll really know for sure.

While almost everything that has hit the market as of late has had a few geeks trying to port Android over, the TouchPad is in a much better position because so many have it and that price is just so stellar.
