Realease Shogo Linux tablet now taking pre-orders in Japan

Shogo now available for pre-order in Japan

Remember the Shogo tablet? If not, allow us to refresh your memory. The Shogo is a 10.1-inch 1024 x 600 resolution capacitive multitouch tablet running a Freescale iMX-37 processor with 4GB of SSD storage, 256MB of RAM, and the usual assortment of connection options (WiFi, Bluetooth, 3G). What sets the Shogo apart from the rest is that it’s designed to be a 100% open-source tablet. It runs Linux, supports Flash and HTML5, and can even be loaded with Android.

The Shogo was previously only available for bulk orders from Realease (who crafted the kitchen-centric QOOQ tablet), but now Redstar is selling the tablet at the consumer level in Japan starting today. Those living in the Land of the Rising Sun who wish to order it can for 56,800 yen (roughly $670 U.S.) from Redstar.

  1. I guess open source isn’t cheap…
