Pen Testing: Pwn Pad by Pwnie Express

Update 1/13/15: Link to free software download for those who already have hardware, found in the confusingly labeled IMHO "Community" section of Pwnie Express site


Pwnie Express, the same people that brought us the Pwn Plug or has a new, very cool piece of gear out they are calling the Pwn Pad.

Best review I have seen so far is by Wired, most of the other online reviews seem to be based on Wired's article.

The Pwn Pad is a 7" Android Tablet running Android OS 4.2 and Ubuntu 12.04.

They include some interesting hardware accessories with the Tablet, a OTG cable, so the tablet can have a functioning USB port, which allows you to use the included SENE Parani-UD100 USB Bluetooth dongle.

This isn't typical Bluetooth device, it has a 300 meter range with the standard external antenna included with the Pwn Pad, but with optional patch antenna it had up to a 1000m meter range, a full kilometer!

They also include a TP-LINK TL-WN722N Wireless N150, I am including these links so people can check specs of included accessories.

Also including those links for the DIY people, since according to Digital Trends, "Pwnie Express is also going to release the source code, allowing for hackers to install it onto other Android devices than the Pwn Pad."
