PengPod is a new startup funded from its crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, and plans to create a number of Linux-based tablets and stick-based mini-PCs. The tablets offered will be available in 7- and 10-inch variants and will be based on the Allwinner A10 SOC, boasting a 1.2GHz ARM Cortex A8 core, HD video processing, as well as 3D rendering capabilities. The devices will also support HDMI output, and the 7-inch tablet will be provided to users that pledged $99 or more.
The larger 10-inch variant of the tablet will also feature WiFi, a front-facing camera as well as dual-boot capabilities with Android and Linux will be given to those who have made a pledge of $185 or more. The value of the PengPod tablets will give them a great advantage over its competitors and may have the potential to completely overturn the tablet market, but we'll have to wait for the PengPod 1000's release in January next year to see it's impact. Preorders of the tablets can be made through the firm's official website.
