The kit contains everything you need to get your homebrewed tablet off the ground: a 4.3-inch 480x272 OLED resistive touchscreen, a mainboard with a 720MHz ARM-Cortex A8 processor (the same chip found in the Droid and Pre smartphones), 2GB of NAND and an SD card slot with a 4GB card containing Angstrom Linux, and a 2600mAh battery module that can sustain the mainboard for "at least" 6.5 hours.
Sure, it isn't the most attractive slate around, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder right? At $393.61 (or $413.61 preassembled), the Beagle DIY tablet is well within the reach of anyone looking to break out the elbow grease – although there are some cheaper development kits around.
