Just to add more gasoline to the fire, there is a new slew of WebOS
touchpads being dumped by HP into the retail market for between USD $99 and
$149. Rumor is that they can be hacked to take Android 4 (there is an Alpha
of 2.3 already available).

Screen rotation needs to be fixed specifically for the iPhone. I don't have
a dev license anymore, so someone else will have to do that.

The speed increase was already applied to the iOS code.

The backlight already works on iOS IIRC

Package installation already works on iOS with the added benefit of the nice
iTunes interface.
