JingPad A1: Linux-based tablet with an AMOLED display blows through its Indiegogo campaign goal
The JingPad A1 has finally reached Indiegogo, where it has already surpassed its funding target. According to Jingling, its manufacturer, the tablet amassed US$20,000 in funding within 15 minutes of going live on the crowdfunding website. As it stands, Jingling has raised over US$117,000 with 54 days of the campaign left to run.
Jingling still has stock of its early bird pricing though, which it has set to US$549. This price includes an active stylus and a Wi-Fi version of the JingPad A1. The company is also selling a keyboard separately for US$149, or a bundle of the three products for US$699.
To recap, Jingling has equipped the JingPad A1 with an 11-inch AMOLED display that runs at 2,368 x 1,728 pixels. The display has a 4:3 aspect ratio and supports 4,096 pressure levels. Jingling claims that the display reaches 350 nits and is TÜV certified, too.
Additionally, the tablet has a Unisoc Tiger T7510 SoC that integrates four ARM Cortex-A75 cores and four Cortex-A55 ones. Complementing these CPU cores is 8 GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 256 GB of expandable storage. These components power JingOS, a Linux fork optimised for tablets. An 8,000 mAh battery underpins the JingPad A1, for reference.
Jingling hopes to start shipping orders to backers in September 2021. In saying that, please note that backing a crowdfunding campaign is not the same as purchasing a device, and there are risks with doing so.
