"The tablet arena already includes countless contenders featuring Linux-based Android, but a company currently seeking funding on Indiegogo (http://www.indiegogo.com/pengpod) aims to produce a new line of what it calls “true Linux” devices. We've already seen Linux-powered tablets including the Vivaldi and the rugged Trimble Yuma, of course, but the new PengPod (http://www.pengpod.com) line from Peacock Imports includes both 7- and 10-inch tablet models as well as a mini PC, all running the free and open source operating system. “Our goal is to build a powerful, True Linux Tablet, one free of Android's restrictions, at a reasonable price,” the company explains. All three devices in the PengPod line feature the Allwinner A10 system on a chip and come with the user's choice of Linux or Android 4.0." story url http://www.pcworld.com/article/2014263/meet-the-pengpod-a-true-linux-tablet-starting-at-120.html"
