Intermatrix U7 Ubuntu tablet up for pre-order in Australia
Australian tech firm Intermatrix is reportedly now taking pre-orders for its upcoming slate PC, dubbed the U7. Apparently, the company will start shipping “the world’s first Ubuntu tablet” at some point in October of this year, priced at AUD 299 (about USD 307, EUR 236, GBP 204) and there is a 10% discount for the first 50 customers.
The U7 is based on the open-source Ubuntu Touch operating system and is driven by an unspecified Quad-Core processor that incorporates ARM Cortex-A9 cores clocked at 1.5GHz and the Quad Core Vivante GC1000+ GPU. The tablet sports a 7-inch IPS capacitive touch display with a native resolution of 1280-by-800 pixels (≈216 PPI) and weighs 320 grams with its 4000mAh battery.
Intermatrix claims the mobile device measures 11mm thick and benefits from two built-in cameras (2MP RF and VGA FF), 1GB of internal RAM and 16GB of storage, which could be expanded by using the microSD card reader slot. Connectivity features reportedly include one microUSB 2.0 port, an HDMI 1.4 output and a Wireless LAN 802.11 b/g/n adapter. Hit the video after the break to see Ubuntu Touch in action.
