I have been dreaming
of buying a £100 tablet, for installing Sugar, like this in local Maplin


It has: ARM A8 Cortex(tm) 1GHz processor, capacitive multi-touch
screen, 1GB RAM, front camera, Android 4.0, so am thinking it would be a
fine candidate for Fedora-arm / Sugar. I have not seen it discussed, has
it been done already?
