The Auraslate 1026 tablet has undergone not only an unboxing experience, but has had its innards removed as well, where it was found out that the 7″ and 10″ Android-powered tablets are hacker friendly, thanks to the use of open source software. If you love tweaking around with the source code of hardware, then you would surely love the Auraslate 1026 as it comes with a disc that contains all the source code you need. A hacker known as AdamOutler did post a video featuring the Auraslate 1026, where he disassembled the entire tablet while showing off just how one is supposed to hook up the system board to a computer in order to run some diagnostics, and checking out just what makes the Auraslate 1026 tick in the process. Hardware specifications include a 10″ touchscreen display at 1024 x 768 pixel resolution, 512MB RAM, 4GB of internal memory, a 1GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich as the operating system of choice. You will have to fork out $199 for the Auraslate 1026 if you are interested.
