    Technically the company, Pandigital, first began their liquidation bankruptcy proceedings in July of this year, but now the company is truly looking "belly-up." Owners of a Pandigital Android tablet were sent an email recently reminding them that the comapny went bankrupt and will no longer be offering any warranty work or replacements for existing devices. This probably didn't come as a surprise to most, but that doesn't make it any less frustrating. Here's the email,

    This is a bit unfortunate, because Pandigital's products were actually pretty good...

    That is a bit sad but hopefully others will step up their game to fill the void and take the sales that pandigital was getting. Maybe if some of those sales go to the Nexus 7 now it will help Android that much more.

    Very sad indeed but with so many companies in the fray I suspect we'll see more of this from the ones that have all or most of their eggs in the same basket.

    My first "tablet" was the original white Pandigital Novel that I ran on a custom Froyo ROM. It's what got me interested in Android in the first place. Before that, I was just fine with my first generation Kindle. My mom still uses my old WPDN on trips, but it spends the majority of the time unused on her bookshelf.

    Any chance that Pandigital might release the source code for their tablets?

    My first Android tablet was the white Novel. Some clever folks were able to take the original Eclair-based device and upgrade it to Froyo (CM6) and even Gingerbread without the source code.

    Image how Pandigital's products could be improved if the source was readily available.
