An anonymous reader writes "PengPod, the company who brought the first commercial dual-booting GNU/Linux-Android tablet is now crowd funding a quad core tablet the PengPod1040
PengPod1040. The PengPod1040 can now boot three different OS options from internal memory, select-able with a built in bootloader. This 9.7" high resolution tablet can run Android, GNU/Linux and now Ubuntu Touch . Ubuntu touch is made so one can have the same friendly Ubuntu experience, but is touch friendly, which has the ability to navigate the Ubuntu desktop without having to use a mouse and keyboard.
PengPod has pledged to make all source and tools used to build the images available so users can build their own OS top to bottom and guarantee it free tracking from the NSA or others. The PengPod has previously found some success as a low cost touch platform for industrial/commercial control systems and is partnered with ViewTouch, the original inventors of the graphical POS to offer PengPods as restaurant register systems.
The Crowdfunding goal on Indiegogo is $349,000, with the tablets starting at $249. There is an Early Bird special with some still available for at $220."
