Submission + - Tablets and eReaders for Hackers, which one? writes: A vast number of the devices I've owned have been things I could hack, mostly bought simply because they were hackable. I've firmware-abused such devices as the WRT54G, NSLU2, Sheeva Plug, Andoird phones, various handhelds, etc and I've yet to regret purchasing a device simply for its ability to be modified in some unblessed-by-the-manufacturer way. As such ARM devices have certainly taken my eye for a number of years and lately both eReaders and Tablets have sparked a fair amount of interest (the combo devices have me really curious to say the least). Now with the sheer volume of devices currently hitting (or about to hit) the market in this area, from a hackers perspective which make you want to rush out and void some warranties?
