This will match up with the new revision of the Vivaldi Spark Tablet, codenamed the Flying Squirrel. Also in the pipeline is an iMX6 CPU Card, and the search is also on for a decent FSF-Endorseable option. The Ingenic jz4760 has been temporarily chosen. Once these products are out, progress becomes extremely rapid."

Inside each cufflink, I have a ATTINY45, a Real Time Clock chip, a couple of resistors and three LEDs. Each cufflink can display a normal UK Traffic light Sequence, a normal UK Pelican Crossing Sequence, the current time, date and even the temperature. All the hardware and software is open source."

I just want a tablet that can run as mythtv-client, OpenOffice.org and not a app-market but just good old apt-get. I have a Joggler — which costs £60, I like something like this with batteries for ~£150, with screen size 10.1", at least 802.11g, usb, minimal on board storage, large RAM, battery life less important. So what is the best tablet for running a real GNU/Linux distribution, ideally Debian. Bonus points for the best apt-get-able distribution that works with a tablet.
