J3400 Tablet PC - The rugged, all-in-one device that is the ideal productivity tool
Googling around, I don't get any hits pertaining to this model. I already have a couple Motion Computing LE1700s and an LE1600--both of which run Debian and Ubuntu out-of-box. But there are some issues. The internal bluetooth doesn't work, the LE1600 buttons don't work, the LE1600 audio is weird (it takes some weird messing around to get the built in speakers to work).
Since the J3400 is so different from the LE series, and the LE1700 and LE1600 were also significantly different from each other (in terms of what works/doesn't work in Linux)...
Well, I'm hoping that someone else has tried Linux on a J3400 so I can hear what did or didn't work.
My main interest in the J3400 is as an artist's tool. The LE1700 is a fine tool for drawing with, but the J3400 might be an interesting upgrade for me...it is cooler, has much better battery life, has a better display (albeit lower resolution), and is more rugged. It uses the same stylus, which is really pleasant to draw with--rather responsive to light strokes.

- I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
I'll forward this to my grandson. He does a lot of art tablet stuff both in Windows and Linux - plus he is a genius engineer as well as as artist. Will reply if he lets me know anything useful for you.Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
