"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."
