    Unfortunately, you are extremely unlikely to be able to accomplish anything that resembles a tablet... The components tend to be application specific, so you will actually need to buy a tablet and take it apart in order to get the pieces to put together into a tablet.

    i knew i wouldnt be able to get a perfect tablet but i was thinking something based on a via pico motherboard, ssd hard drive, and around a 10" touchscreen. that would all fit into a very small package, the main problem i see would be how to hook up a battery properly.

    extras like 3G and accelerometer can be added on through usb.

    if i was to ever do it my goal would be to have android running on it
