    Thanks Andi! 🙂 Is the front on the tablet platic or glass, is the windows button still there, how is the battery life (honestly). Thanks!

      I’ve not had the time to try and run it down, but I’d hazard a guess at around 3 hours. If I don’t get my M9 later today I’ll have time to play with the tablet and see how long it can really last.
      Oh, the front is plastic, but seem tough and has a great smooth feel to it. The Windows button is still there:(

    Is this going to ship with the Unity GUI or the standard desktop one? I’d prefer bigger buttons and a bigger keyboard (like the iPad) so there’s no fiddling about in the corners trying to close windows.
    Actually, loads of Unity touch gestures would be best.

    @Paul, I figure it will ship with Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal. If the tablet’s video hardware is capable enough, then Unity will be the standard GUI. Keep in mind that a 2D version of Unity is scheduled to be included in Ubuntu 11.10 which is rumored to be codenamed “Oscillating Ocelot”.

    I have the same tablet, and many people I know also have it.
    We have tried to put Linux on it, with no luck.

    It requires two fingers to touch the screen in order to work.

    How did you get it working?
