    I believe it means factory overclock.

    Wow, I'm coming on this thread again and it's like I missed the product on the first time.
    I think there are many** people that may appreciate the software freedom, and others (overlapping) who want a smartphone with a slide out keyboard, but can't find one anywhere and could use this product instead (if only for using a remote command line, email or other tasks)

    These sorts of people are often adamant about the SD slot and removable battery.

    ** : for an unquantified definition of many. [on a well-known, long running site about tech and open source with "stories" and "comments" that mix rants, high quality comments and toxic trolls]

    I have a feeling it is too cheap (affordable) or is it just what you get from doubling down on the budget of a $100 Windows tablet?
    /edit : that reminds me of the netbooks. Smaller hardware was cheaper and that was a good thing for once.

    Only question : does it boot linux?, or is the bootloader weird.

    Users would have to figure out how to attach a keyboard etc. and make it usable, the blame would be (hopefully) put mostly on Intel for issues.
    Not critical for everyone : it's possible to run debian/ubuntu etc. or unix-like software on Android or even from Windows (multiple ways)

    It has Bluetooth 4.0 and runs Windows 10, so connecting a keyboard and mouse in its default configuration will be easy.

    I'm assuming it should be relatively easy in Linux as well? I guess it'll depend on the Bluetooth chipset used.

    Hi, Pete!
    Our company hopes to have PGS Hardcore units on hand to show off at E3 in June this year. Not earlier than that time.

    I imagine how heated it will be while playing. And for me 5.5 inches is not comfortable for most of this games.
