Re: Low-Cost Tablet PC suitable for Debian

Forgotten one thing:

It can be also an Open-Frame PanelPC, because I have BIG LiPoly cells
of 6Ah and 12Ah availlable and can also build my own housing.

Adv.:    I have Serial Ports, more USB, can have an attached heating
         element... Direct CD/DVD support...

DisAdv.: Need external USB/Serial GSM/3G Modem and mostly USB-Wifi
         adapter.  Higher Power consumption, but it does not realy
         matter, because I have everywhere 24V DC availlable from
         Solar- and Windenergy...

So I need generally:

1)  2-4 USB ports
2)  Serial RS232/485 port
3)  Ethernet
4)  Wifi
5)  GSM/3G
6)  Touchscreen
7)  Possibel external keyboard
8)  Mouse/Trackball

Note: I can not get my BananaPI (because it has CAN) with
      a big 1920x1280 12" touchscreen Display running ...
      Otherwise it is just perfect for its 38?.
