Cordia Tab Is For The Open-source Guys

With the tablet wars raging, it’s no surprise that we’ve got even the open-source guys wanting to jump in.

The planned Cordia Tab is going to be able to run all Linux-based operating systems – this means the everything from the popular Android to the obscure MeeGo. The expected price is $300 – when they finish it.

The geniuses behind this project plan to hack out an already existing tablet to their specifications – then test it out with a Linux kernel and see it optimized. That’s a pretty audacious plan right there. They’ve already got the specs of the tablet they want and they’re starting to experiment.

What we’re supposed to get is a tablet that has the following:

  • 800 MHz Freescale i.MX515 processor
  • 512MB of RAM
  • 7-inch 1024 x 600 pixel capacitive touchscreen display.
  • Connectivity: 802.11b/g WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, 3G
  • Addons: a mini USB port, HDMI port, camera, and headset hack.

It’s not exactly the most impressive tablet – but if you want to tinker around with tablets this maybe the one for you.
