Exclusive: Leaked Images Reveal Ubuntu Powered Tablet


Merry Christmas Linux and Open source fans! A new Linux powered tablet is on it’s way!

Details and pictures after the jump.

The specs aren’t yet complete but this 10 inch multi-touch tablet running Ubuntu Netbook 10.10 has an Intel Atom 1.6 Ghz CPU, 2 Gb RAM and a 32Gb SSD hard drive. The bugs are still being worked out but initial impressions are good and boot up time is almost instant!

We’ll bring you more news as the tablet develops, but if you’re interested in learning who’s helping with development there’s an Easter egg to be found in the pictures!

Merry Christmas!

    I find Linux on a tablet to be rather amusing and sexy. I hope to see more of this in the future as well as in other people’s homes.

    Mielenkiinnolla voi odottaa edullisia kehittyviä tablet koneita. Siihen ryhmään tämäkin tulee kuulumaan. Vuoden päästä tablet koneen voi saada ehkä jo sadalla eurolla.

    Ubuntu Linux is a good choice, much better than Android. However, if that screen showing the lack of an mp3 plugin is a clue, this tablet will crash ‘n burn for the mainstream user. While Linux purists may demand a pristine, open-source environment, the reality is that these third-party plugins are necessary for the tablet to work properly with the content most mainstream users will drop into it. Find a way to get QuickTime (or its equal) into this tablet and, given a competitive price (when compared to the iPad), it will succeed. However, deliver it to users in a pure, opens-source, friendly-to-geeks-only manner, and you’ve got yet another niche product that will go down in flames. Perhaps Mark Shuttleworth will grow a pair and give us a mini-Steve Jobs.

    as usual linux underwhelms it is still lame
    on a desktop of anything else only the simplest devices with linux buried deep under propriety menus are useful, I feel the same way about iOS . . . the dumbing down of america where no one thinks for themselves . . . yah
