That is a specific device issue, check to see if it is still under warranty.
As for putting Ice Cream Sandwich (Android) on it, ignore that too unless you are technical and are happy with alpha versions. Alpha versions have more bugs than beta versions.
The HP Touchpad comes with webOS, which is a ler version of the Palm OS. The software in the device could be five or ten times more useful if the just did ten percent more. It is good to read PDF files except it is inconvenient to go to specific pages.
If you get the HP Touchpad and use it with the webOS then you should install something called Preware; it is called "pre" due to a previous model of phone that used the Palm OS.
I am running CM7 (Android) and do not have issues with going to specific pages on my PDFs with a slider bar, you can also search specific words.
My biggest issue since Android is with battery life... but then again I use it way more now.
I will update to CM9 soon.
Please don't delete this post, I am trying, honest!
