French Linux Tablet Made For The Kitchen

Sacre bleu! La tablette QOOQ V2, she cleans right up! It's designed for the kitchen; you can use it with dirty hands, spill on it, and it runs Linux.

You would only use a conventional tablet in the kitchen with great care. If you were to spill flour or wine or even just water on it you would probably void the warranty.

The QOOQ is the first tablet not produced in Asia. It is French-made and, in another unconventional twist, runs Linux.

The QOOQ does all the usual tablet things: you can surf the web and listen to music, for example, but it also comes with a lot of kitchen content. Software on the device gives access to more than 3500 recipes. Hubert Bloch, QOOQ's Marketing Director says it's like a digital cooking school
