Meet The World’s First Ubuntu Tablet (That Is Also a Desktop PC) image/svg+xml

Canonical has officially unveiled the world’s FIRST Ubuntu tablet, the Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition.

Made by Spanish OEM Bq, the 10-inch tablet runs the same core Ubuntu operating system as the Ubuntu Phone but the user experience dynamically adapts based on input and screen size.

This looks super-interesting and I’m really tempted to try and get one. That said, my tablet use is limited and I already have an iPad Air 2, which is a fantastic device. If I did get one, it would purely be to satisfy my curiosity towards the operating system, which is probably not a good enough reason to justify the purchase.

Regardless of my own fanboy curiosity, it’ll be interesting to see how well it’s received by others. By all accounts, tablet sales declined last year, so it’s a tough market to enter. And, with the added friction of not being an iOS or Android device, it will struggle. With that in mind, maybe I should get one, it might be worth some money one day, to a collector of rare tech oddities.

    Would probably work better with CrunchBang.

    Haha. That’s kind of you to say, but no, it really wouldn’t :)
