Pepper Pad 3 is due to be out later this year. I already proved that it can
run Einstein.

It's sporting a smaller form factor and a smaller screen (800x480), and an
AMD Geode CPU (x86 instruction set) and Linux based off of Fedora Core 4.

By all accounts the Geode runs rings around the XScale-based Pad 2 that I
have at home, while running at a 20% lower clock speed and having better 2D
and 3D graphics support out of the box. Oh, and 2 USB 2.0 ports, a 30GB
disk, Bluetooth 2.0, and 802.11g Wi-Fi.

More information

(No I'm not affiliated with Pepper, I just like their product)
