Nokia n800 vs pepper pad which one is most customizable, easier to use


Well I am still searching for a linux tablet pc or tablet pc like device that runs exclusively on linux.

So far I have only found the Nokia n800 and the Pepper pad.

I found a cool convertible notebook on emperor linux but that is way out of my budget right now.

So I need help in deciding which one is better the Nokia N800 or the Pepper pad.

I have heard that I anything that can be installed on Fedora Core can be installed on the pepper pad, is this true?

it would be great to install openoffice and some sort of digital pad on it.

Well if anyone knows of a worthy tablet PC that comes preinstalled with linux let me know.

Also give me input on the original question.

I've found the N800 to be an extremely flexible device so far. That being said, I have no direct hands on experience with the PepperPad, so I can't compare them. For the N800:
