    It's worth mentioning that crowdfunding is supposed to bea means for funding, as opposed to preordering. When a project is crowdfunded, there is no guarantee that you will get the final product.

    Their "pengstick" is just an mk802. I imagine their tablet could be the same, buying hardware off the chinese market, putting a new OS on it, and rebranding it. This would concern me deeply as it means they have no control over things like quality control and hardware consistency.

    I have put in order for the 7" tablet. I have been waiting for a linux tablet for awhile, and although they are much talked about this is as close as I have come to seeing one.

    I wanted to show support for a linux tablet and for the price even if I get burned (trail and error hardware/software) I still feel more comfortable giving to the idea of a linux tablet.

    I will post my feedback when I get hold of it.
