The PepperPad 3 is finally almost here, and Linux aficionados cannot wait for a pre-built tablet PC that runs their favorite flavor of OS.

In case you're not familiar, the PP3 is a tablet that has Bluetooth, QWERTY, WiFi, built-in speakers, and a 20GB hard drive. Advertised as a "Handheld Web Computer", it's half UMPC and half computer-you-put-into-the-kitchen-to-email-while-you-cook. Crunchgear has a preview up and will have a full review soon.
