"There is a new tablet PC in town that runs Linux, and its name is Shogo. Made by realease, a Hong Kong-based platform provider, this device features a 10-inch capacitive touchscreen and will be available in two models: one has a Freescale i.MX37 (ARM 11) processor; the other model is loaded with a Freescale i.MX51 (ARM Cortex A8) processor.

"The Shogo tablet has tons of cool and useful features making it a potential iPad killer. On the hardware side, it has 1 external USB, 2 internal USB, motion sensor, Ethernet connector, microphone and headphone ports, front-facing web camera (2-Megapixel), ambient light sensor, accelerometer, and more. On the software side, the device is running Linux but we don't have further details about it. It could be Android, or could be a heavily customized Linux distro. However, it's certain that it will rely on HTML5-based applications, it will have Flash support, and it will feature Android-compatible development platform."
