Just like you don’t install a Mac OS on a Windows computer, it is also not recommended to install the Linux operating system on a device that has Android installed. And why would you do this? The Android devices are among some of the best in the whole world. I know that the Linux operating system is free, but if you get an Android tablet, you pay the money for that tablet, why would you want to change the operating system? I hope you realize that you switch from an operating system for which you paid a certain amount of money to a system that you can get for free from the Internet.
If you want a tablet that runs the Linux system, you should get a tablet that has this system installed from the first moment. It is difficult to change an operating system. It is difficult enough to upgrade an OS, not mentioning changing the entire operating system from a system created by a certain manufacturer to a system created by other manufacturer.
I have seen on this site that there is a tablet that comes with the Linux system installed, for which you will have to pay around $500. The name of this tablet is Shogo and this is a very interesting piece of hardware. First of all, the processor of this tablet is an ARM11 Freescale i.MX37 or an ARM Cortex A8 Freescale i.MX51 (there are two possible models, that have different processors), the LCD touchscreen has 10.1 inches, providing a resolution better than the resolution of some laptops (1024×600 pixels), the DDR RAM has 256 MB and the NAND Flash drive has 4 GB.
Until now, so far, so good. The price is a bit high, but this tablet has been named the potential iPad killer. So you have to expect that a tablet named in this way is powerful enough to make the iPad users to switch from the Apple tablets to Shogo. And a tablet that is considered to “kill” the iPad will have a proper price. You cannot say that the iPad killer will cost $50, because no one will buy that. Only the casing of the tablet is $50. The users know these aspects, you cannot fool them. So, a tablet that could possible bring the end for the iPad tablet must have a price that is comparable to the price of the iPad.
