The hacker/developer community HackNMod is offering a $1,500 prize if you can figure out a user-friendly way to install Android on HP’s TouchPad.TechCrunch picked up on the contest earlier today, and it has been gaining momentum ever since.
The $1,500 prize is actually broken down into categories:
$450 for a basic Android port, $350 if you can get Wi-Fi to work, $300 if you can get audio to work, $300 if you can get the camera to work, and $100 for functional multitouch.
We’re guessing it’s theoretically possible to win the entire prize if you’re the first to accomplish each category.
