The Eee Tablet will run a Linux OS, but not Google's Android mobile operating system, which has long been the rumor.
The Linux distribution on board was developed by Asustek, said Jerry Shen, CEO of Asustek, speaking with reporters after the conference.
It is not an ordinary tablet though. It has no back light. They decided to skip that because it is aimed at those who want something more that just a book reader and to look into a light is tiring for the eyes so e-ink would be a good thing but they are slow in response so not good to use browsing the internet.
I am not a good reader. Do they really say it is B/W and not color? Wow that is different. And they don't say how it handle Flash either.
Now the main reason me write here is that it is linux and not android.
Okay a special distro of limux but still linux.
Android is not really ordinary linux. They have proprietary code that makes android not totally compatible if I get it. I only guess. _________________ I use Google Search on Puppy Forum
