Linux users will love to have one of those. I will like highers specs , (bigger screen) , more ram, e.t.c. No GPS nor 3g? not good. It it's better for later versions to come out. playbooks have better specs than this O_o + comes with gps.
Another day another tablet, open source sounds cool but they are years too late. There are way too many ios and android developers now.
Good price for this. Linux is a big plus too.
I'll bet that it's gonna have some great perfomance under the hood.
Anything with a mission statement like that has to be firmly rooted in customer appeal and as a result success, the active plasma operating system looks intuitive but a little basic and unfinished in terms of bells and whistles (but I'm guessing that's where they're hoping the open-source nature of Linux and its developers can fill in the gaps)
Either way a neat product and like the article mentioned some good comp and way to get some innovation going for Tablets
By "Blending" does that mean that the device will support iOS or Android at the expense of the warranty?
"Will it blend" is a internet site that blends,..........http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lAl28d6tbko
There is plenty of eye candy in KDE's Plasma Desktop. I've been using it for years and can recognize this as being the same environment, configured for a touch screen. Check out the Plasma themes from kde-look.org. There are hundreds of beautiful themes that can be installed from within the GUI's configuration including ones that mimic popular commercial GUIs.
As to blending, I assume this is about installing other OSs or GUIs. I can see how this would void the warranty as much of the work is probably invested in just getting an ideal configuration built for the touchscreen environment.
Well in my opinion this is really exciting, a niche product, something different than iPad or Android tablets. Would even consider buying one if it does make it to retail :)
Hahahah can't believe I missed that reference, thanks for the clarification realneil
No, i think it won't after watching that video hahahahahaha
