Thanks raffy, thanks guys

I now have an ARM powered Android phone and for the last two days been playing with a new ipad2 (gone back to owner now) Crying or Very sad
. . . very tempted to save up my sardine tins to get one . . .

The Android phone (which I use as a computer) reminds me of facebook. Lots to do most of it trivial or useless. Will take me a while to get used to it

Ipad2 . . . Any good?
Yes. Very good. Very polished. Very pleasant.
Totally cloud based - you really need net connection
Fast, quiet, long battery life 5 hour charging - 10 hour usage
The screen is fabulous
The IOS very straight forward interfacing
Safari browser is OK
Youtube works, there is a free BBC iplayer, Street view in Google maps IS available

Problems. No flash - not such a bad thing
No USB - that is a bad thing . . .
The screen keyboard is very good but the screen cover is
separate prop which Apple overcharges for in its normal outrageous manner
That cover would be much more useful
if it was a blue tooth rubberised rollerable keyboard
Don’t tell me no one thought of that?

Will we ever see Puppy on it?
Not in Puppy's present form - it is just not yet 'touch enabled
BUT that might be supported in the latest kernel options?

This is Ubuntu's plan

It is a good plan.

Must resist
I have the programming ability of
a TV remote with missing batteries
but I want a tablet I can program on. . . .

This is tempting Confused

Must resist - do not bite the Apple

I thought the Ipad3 would have an e-ink screen
- that would have been very cool Cool

Parmlet not available yet . . .

An alternative to the Akash . . .

There are a lot of these potential devices floating about.
E-ink is going to make the difference for me - battery life will shoot up

PostPosted: Thu 25 Oct 2012, 17:57    Post subject: Tablet Puppy via CHROOT  

I am very tempted by the ASUS TF300T. This is a 10 inch display pad computer that comes with a detachable keyboard, becoming an ARM netbook with the keyboard attached. The SOC is a Nvidia Tegra3, which has 4 cortex A9 cores with NEON , plus a 5th low-power one for idling etc. Quite a different scale from the Raspberry Pi, in cost alas! Still cheaper than any Ultrabook I can find in NZ though.

There a a number of fora that report on various ways to install Linux onto the TF300. The easiest way seems to be to chroot from android into a suitable Linux filesystem image. Most of them mention Ubuntu but claim that any processor-suitable Linux image should work.

Can any guru comment on whether this is likely to work for Puppy? I would tend to be looking at using Android for the things that it is good for and Puppy for the essential Linux apps, especially Libre Office. I was considering the Arch-Puppy approach as a possibility. Or is there another Puppy ARM build that could work?

If it looks possible and I do have a go, would there be anyone available to hold my hand as I try?
