While tablets are popular, Linux is still not mainstream enough to expect much in sales from this device.


I don't think that this device even went in production. It should have started shipping in May'14 but even the website is not updated. Dead project perhaps.

CAmera is too less

It good tablet but 1GB is not enough like ram
