Submission + - Crowdfunding campaign for a new $249 PengPod. (indiegogo.com)

Splintercat writes: You may remember a story from almost a year ago about a Linux tablet called the PengPod. The same people are at it again with a much better tablet that has a 9.7" IPS — 2048 x 1536 display, a 1 Ghz quad-core A31 processor, 2 GB of ram, 16 GB of built in storage with an open micro SD card slot, and can boot into many different distros of Linux as well as Android.

It appears that the tablet hardware already exists and the crowdfunding campaign is for funding software development and support for the device, though of course, backing at a high enough level will get you the tablet and possibly some other goodies.

Unfortunately this campaign has received very little attention so far, though the upshot is that if you're quick, you can snag one of the early bird specials and get one for less than a new Nexus 7, and should have better support for flavors of Linux besides Android.

Also, if you're considering these for your business, ViewTouch has made a deal with the PengPod folks to make their POS available at a discount on 100 Peng Pods.
