Extra details

I am trying to find an inexpensive tablet for SDR using Dragon OS. This is for field use. It will need at least one preferbly more USB ports. I gather that this is not a typical question normally posted here.

If I was gonna do something like this - I’d probably go for a Surface from Microsoft, e.g. an older one cheap off e-bay or something - e.g. a Surface Pro 3 or 4 - can be wiped and Linux installed inplace of Windows.

I’d steer clear of Android focussed tablets, because many (most) of them won’t let you run a full linux system on them - and - the one solution that looked promising, JingPad with JingOS has “died” i.e. the company folded…

Pine have some solutions, but I had a bad experience with Pine and their initially kickstarter in 2016 - advertising themselves as “world’s first $16 super computer” (they were trying to ride on NTC CHIP’s marketing coattails "World’s first $9 computer), they were anything but “super” - could barely stay online via their USB power port… The HUGE difference between NTC and Pine, was that NTC had amazing support and tech help and managed the O/S, PINE just offered some SHONKY Linux builds leveraged off the Android kernel…
