True, the Android operating system is based on Linux, but many dyed-in-the-wool Linux users would prefer a tablet running “real” Linux, which is exactly what Peacock Imports is trying to do with its line of PengPod Linux tablets.

The short but sweet product lineup is intriguing and includes the 7-inch PengPod700 and 10-inch PengPod1000 tablets and PengStick mini PC on-a-stick. Both of the tablets run the A10 chip, can dual-boot (yes, dual-boot!) Android 4.0 and Linux 3.0.42, offer 1GB of RAM, 8GB of ROM with up to 32GB of expandable storage, and include USB, WiFi, and HDMI. The PengPod 700’s front camera is 1.3MP, while for some reason the 10-incher’s camera is just 0.3MP. Both tablets have a speaker and a headphone jack.
