I was digging through my storage unit and found my good Ol' Samsung Q1-UMPC and remembered how hamstrung this machine is.It doesn't have bad specs:
1.33GHz Core Solo Express 945 chipset
90g SD Drive
Graphics Media accelerator
Blue tooth module
2 USB ports
All touch screen, with a small bisected key-board on the case. A stylus, forward and backward facing camera's, etc. But.....the Windows XP and extra programs (finger print reader, virtual keyboard, other Samsung based programs) really bog this small system down. So I was thinking about putting a Linux distro or Android on it. Some factors I am seeing...
Proven on computers
Works perfectly on computers no matter the specs (can find a version for your requirements)
Easy to adjust for your specs
Works well on touch screen
Proven on small machines.
Each has good and bad for the application I am looking at using it on. Linux is easy to tweak to your settings but I have yet to find a good touch screen distro and have only found one instance of a Samsung having Linux on it. Android has touch screen but might not recognize the wireless keyboard and mouse I use with the machine.
I won't be gaming (much) on this tablet. My plan is to hook this up to the HD T.V we have and use it for Netflix and browsing, Would be cool to have Android and use the market place but I know that Linux is limitless in what you want to do with it.
So I'm asking for some advice and input from the knowledgeable and experienced posters on NBF.
Thanks for any and all help guys.
