    It would be uber cool if the Z10 could be rooted to allow installation of Cyanogenmod 10.1. It'd be one of the most powerful Androids on the block!

    Although that would be cool, it wouldnt be anywhere near the "most powerful androids on the block"

    And you would lose all function of your device even if you managed to load it since it's completely coded for the hardware of Android devices. I used to do nightly builds of software for Android and needless to say it's quite pointless to even dream of putting a android optimized OS on another platform.

    The Z10's specs put it in the same class as the HTC One X, some Samsung Galaxy S III's, Sony Xperia V, and the Motorola RAZR MAXX HD.
    It wouldn't be THE most powerful but it would be pretty damned good!

    That's cool. How did they get it on the HP TouchPad? Did it just happen to have compatible architecture?

    Yes it did and while the Z10 uses practically the same internals as a S3, it's the little things about it like the kernel and such that would make laying a android OS into a Z10 difficult.

    One would either need to build the OS compatible with QNX or build a new kernel ground up for the Z10
