There are Android tablets from 2013 which will never see the KitKat update and then there is our beloved TouchPad from 2011, and you know what? It can run KitKat!

In posts released yesterday from Phoenix International Communications on their facebook and twitter accounts it seems ACL for webOS’ public release is imminent. It’s a quick blurb but at this point, those hungry for ACL for webOS release news will take the smallest morsels to satisfy their need.
Unless you’re just coming back to webOS from another platform or you’ve been hiding under a mobile-tech rock, you are aware that Phoenix International Communications has partnered with OpenMobile to create the Android Compatibility Layer for the HP Touchpad. This impressive undertaking theoretically brings the (almost) entirety of the Android app catalog to webOS. I say almost because it is based off of Android 2.3 so apps requiring Android 3+ won’t work…yet.
