Looking for a kickass open source tablet
I'm looking for kickass open source tablet with the following requirements:
-Linux, or open source equavalent;
-Full HD resolution or something that's not a pathetic 1024*768;
-Something that has the screen size of an iPad (at least not some useless in-between iPad and smartphone size);
-Must be able to develop on in more langauges than just Java (C and C++);
-Costing below 501 dollars/euro's.
Does it even exist? Plug-on keyboard a bonus. nVidia is a no-go.

You could get a Fujitsu Stylistic or any of the other, pre-ipad-era tablets used for that price.
I do want something that doesn't require a stylus and has a battery that lasts longer than 2 hours and doesn't take two minutes to get out of standby...

Doubtful. I expect to see all or nearly all to be locked in with MS's UEFI secure boot without any option of disabling it provided by the manufacturers.
