Isn’t the time of multifunctional devices. The customer nowadays wants something more and the plus side is, that the device makers are ready to go all the way and provide the customers with what they want. A perfect example of this trend is Canonical manufactured world’s first Ubuntu tablet, the Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition.
The 10-inch tablet runs on the same core operating system as the Ubuntu Phone but the user experience dynamically adapts based on input and the screen size being used by the user. This means, the device is able to double up both as a tablet and a full on Ubuntu desktop.
The device’s stunning specifications have the capability to bowl any geeky techie’s mind over. The device’s gorgeous 10.1-inch IPS inch IPS touch display is powered by a full HD 1920×1200 pixel resolution at 240 ppi. Further, its Inside has a 64-bit MediaTek MT8163A 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal memory to make it a desire for ever tech enthusiast. In order to increase the storage expansion to up to 64GB, the device comes with a micro SD memory card.
This is not all, the device also comes with an 8-megapixel rear camera with autofocus and dual LED flash, which is capable of recording in full 1080p. Further, it also has a 3-megapixel front facing camera for selfies, video chats and vlogs.
For an astounding sound experience, the device comes with front facing Dolby Atmos speakers. Further, the M10 at 246mm x 171mm x 8.2mm, weighs just 470 grams and is lighter than the Apple iPad Air. Yes, you read it right. In addition to this, its 7280 mAh battery makes sure that people are able to make use of it for 10 hours without any hassle.
The firsts for M10 doesn’t just stop with its unique slate form factor. It also has the honour of being the first device to deliver on Canonical’s vision of the future of computing: convergence.
According to Canonical, idea behind convergence is, that one doesn’t need to distinct, separate devices, each running their own apps and operating system – as one only need one brain to do various functions, similarly one needs only one OS.
Organisations who want to take a tight control over their own systems and avoid any third party access, Ubuntu is the device they were looking for so long.
The M10 Ubuntu tablet global sale can be expected to begin in March. For people wanting to buying the device, they may have to shell up to €250, which we think for such a device is not that bad a deal.
