I have Complete Linux Installer v2 on my Android 4.1.1 Samsung Note2, you can have install different distros ( Ubuntu 10, 12 ) Backtrack, Debian, ArchLinux, Fedora17 and openSuse 12.

as far as tablet goes, I am waiting on my Linux Tablet to arrive this week from http://pengpod.com/products/pengpod1000 (they just had finished their fund raising to start the project ).

When I get it I will try to install a voip client and I will let you know.


cheers,
