Between the tiny PC phenomenon and the growing number of PCs shipping with Linux preloaded over the past year, there's been no shortage of hardware announcements for Linux fans.http://www.pcworld.com/article/2028281/two-linux-tablet-projects-take-a-step-forward.html
It's been a little less active on the tablet front, but just this week two separate announcements emerged about Linux tablets we've been waiting for.
Here's a quick rundown on the basics.
There's no shortage of Android tablets in the marketplace today, but devices that run Ubuntu Linux are still much harder to come by.http://www.pcworld.com/article/2025464/lightweight-kite-tablet-runs-ubuntu-12-04-and-android-4-0.html
Canonical's own mobile plans are still a work in progress, of course, but on Monday an intriguing new contender popped up on Notebook Italia and then Engadget.
Specifically, the new “Nibbio,” or “Kite,” Full-HD tablet from Italian DaVinci Mobile Technology will dual-boot Ubuntu and Android and is due to begin shipping next month.
Looks like we (some one. the devs) is going to have to create an ARM version of PCLOS... eventually.
