I'm a programmer building my own Homeautomationsystem. I'm looking for some sort of tablet which I can mount to a wall and use to display information as well control things. The software I planed to use is a debian system + opera in fullscreen mode.
However I can not find any tablet which is (relatively) good looking, (relatively) fast and cheap. There are a lot of android tablet (starting at around 60€) which would suit, but I do not want to pay the overhead of Android, especially since all I need is a browser. Using a debian I could customize boot screens, tune for a really fast boot and so on.
What I need:
- Some sort of Local Network (either LAN or WLAN, maybe using a USB adapter)
- Screen size (8" - 12")
- Microphone and Speaker
Nice to have:
- Front Camera
- Mobile networking (3G/4G)
- Back Camera (since there is a wall anyway)
- Large storage (8 - 16 GByte should be enough)
- Fancy features (Fingerprint, etc)
Price should be as low as possible, because I need about 10 of these. I have no problem with soldering wires to USB connectors etc or do crazy software stunts to get it working if the tablet is cheap enough.
However is there a tablet which is known to be working with native Linux ? A industrial PC should be ok too but most of them are either really expensive, or lot awkward.
Thanks in advance.
