Subject description: for small tablet
 

Only 4.8" screen, but I have a nokia with the same screen.

Puppy would just need the touch screen driver to work well.

Thanks for that link.
It says it has intel Atom CPU that means it
is compatible with the code we already have.

But is it not more like a smartphone look here
"2G - 900/1800/1900 & 3G - 2100" that is a phone spec.

802.11b/g Wi-Fi
2G - 900/1800/1900 & 3G - 2100
2GB SSD + Expandable MicroSD card slot
512MB RAM
4.8” touchscreen
Intel Atom 800MHz processor
Mini USB port
Bluetooth 2.0
2.5mm headphone out
3-axial G-sensor
Red Flag Midinux Linux OS

2.5mm headphone out that is a shame really.

Can I trust that if I attach a USB Hub to that
mini-USB port that I can use USB mouse
and USB keyboard and USB external HD etc?

Then the price is very good.
Red Flag Midinux Linux OS looks promising
maybe it do allow me to be root and to
use puppy too? But 512 MB RAM is small
but usable I know. One only have to adjust
and not open many apps and tabs in browser.

What makes it a tablet and not a smartphone?
What is lacking is the ability to attach a big screen?
