The JIngPad A1 seems to be coming close to release and several prototypes have been sent out. I have to say, it’s looking pretty good! I have ordered one myself and I’d be happy to discuss it further when I get it.
Contrary to the pinephone/pinetab, this device is targeting a wide audience of end users and not just enthusiasts and developers. It uses relatively high end components, but likely as a result it does not have mainline Linux kernel support. (yet?)
Here’s another look from TuxPhones: https://tuxphones.com/jingos-linux-tablet-review-part-1/
I seem to recall that some “le reddit sleuth” decided that this was a complete scam and that they had nothing but photoshopped iPads and many people decided that they were right. (“We did it, reddit!”)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).
Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
