I can think of two ways this could possibly work. One is to "dual boot" so
that the entire Fedora+Sugar stack lives on a storage medium and the tablet
boots into it. The other is to reuse the Linux part of the Android stack,
but to run a different upper stack like how Ubuntu on Android works (
http://www.ubuntu.com/devices/android). A similar approach is used with
Debian on Android where the Debian system lives in a chroot.
