Aquarius M10 – Get Your Hands On The First Ubuntu Linux Tablet

If you have been using the Ubuntu Linux operating system on your PC, then you probably enjoy all the freedom that comes with open sourced software. The thought of having such kind of software on your mobile device has probably crossed your mind. Well, the Aquarius M10 is here just for that.

Sure, we have the Android OS from Google, but Linux has been around much longer, and you are already familiar with it especially on the desktop space. A mobile version will be nice and the more OS choices you get in the mobile space, the merrier.

Well, you will be happy to know that BQ is already taking in pre-orders for the Aquarius M10 tablets that come in two variants, the HD ($289) and the full HD ($335).

The Aquarius M10 is the first official Ubuntu tablet in the market, and as the names of the two variants suggest, their prices vary based on the quality of their display. The HD model comes with 1,280×800 resolutions, 1.3GHz Quad-Core MediaTek Processor while the full HD comes with a sharper 1,920×1,200 resolution display and a 1.5GHz processor.

The Aquarius M10 tablet variants are both a far cry from a speedy top tier tablet that would replace your laptop. However, they pack enough punch to get you through the day with the basic mobile computing needs.

They both come with 2GB RAM, 16GB expandable memory and 8MP and 5MP rear- and front-cameras. There are far superior Android, iOS and Windows-based tablets out there, but if you crave for an Ubuntu tablet, then this is the one for you.

You will have to wait until the second week of April to get your hands on one since currently BQ is only taking preorders for the same.
