    PengPod tablet, what do you say?

    Together with smartphones, tablets are the hottest-selling devices on the planet. And those powered by Android hold top market share. A relatively new name in the tablet-space is PengPod, made by Peacock Imports, a Florida, US-based outfit. The PengPod tablet runs Linux on ARM/Allwinner SoC hardware.Instead of just running a pure Android tablet, you get the option to run your favorite Linux distribution and Android in dual-boot fashion, provided your Linux distribution has an edition for the hardware.The common specs for a PengPod are:

    Allwinner A10 processor


    Support for Linux and Android in dual-boot fashion on SD card


    HDMI port


    1 GB RAM and 8 GB storage

    USB, OTG-WiFi
    Front Camera (1.3M for PengPod700 and 0.3M for the PengPod1000)

    Speakers

    The price is around $120

      Now I am not one that care to much about benchmark scores, but here's a little indication on what you can expect from this PengPod tablet;

      The "GB ram RK3188 devices gets an average of about ~17-17.500 points in AnTuTu v3.3.2.

      My (retail price $120, 2 years ago) old Sony Xperia Mini, with a snapdragon s2 running @ 1GHz - gets an average of 5200 points.

      The Alwinner A10 - averages 2800-2850 points.
      Its an outdated micro-budget SoC. The only reason it can still have a high pricetag, is because its cost (the tablet) from factory was high once - and it does come with a touchscreen attached. For running modern android on a basic-use phone, sure - but This thing is useless for todays multimedia.

      To compare - the RK3188's predecessor - the RK3066 - scored almost triple of the Alwinner A10.

        My point being showing detail beyond the factual point; You're not exactly getting much for those $120. 2 years ago maybe, not now. And as my answer was a reply to a question regarding a comparisment to an 2GB ram RK3188 stick, I hardly think that user have too much use for a screen and battery. Point is that the stick he asked about comparisment to - is 10x the machine in most aspects, at a lower price tag than the represented PengPod tablet.

        Users here on average, are far to specs-conciuos for this pitch. I believe the OP will have better better luck promoting this somewhere else.
