When it comes to tablets people are often faced with the decisions between Windows and iOS operating systems, but that could soon be coming to an end with the first official Ubuntu tablet coming soon.
The Aquarius M10 is the first official tablet that will run Ubuntu, the open source Linux-based operating system. Costing you €259 (around £203) for the HD version of the tablet or for a mere extra 40 euros at €299 (around £235) you can grab the full HD variation of the tablet. Featuring a 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek processor and 1,280 x 800 display for the HD model or a 1.5GHz processor and 1,920 x 1,200 on the Full HD model, the tablets contain relatively common numbers for the modern market.
With 2GB of Ram, 16GB of expandable storage and 8-megapixel and 5-megapixels on the back and front of the tablet respectively it is a perfect little starter for tablets. The key point is that using Canonical’s open source software, the device will switch to a desktop PC when connected to a mouse, keyboard and external screen. Carry round computer anyone?
The device is slated for release in the second week of April and we are sure that some people reading will be more than interested in these tablets.
