Codrut Nistor,

Canonical will soon launch its first Ubuntu tablet, the BQ Aquaris M10. This slate has been unveiled at MWC 2016 and will be sold via the BQ Store, but the date when it will hit the market is still unknown. Fortunately, there are no other secrets concerning this Linux-driven tablet powered by a quad-core MediaTek processor.

BQ Aquaris M10 has the following specs and features:

  • Processor: MediaTek MT8163M
  • Memory/Storage: 2 GB RAM; 16 GB internal storage and microSD support
  • Display: 10.1-inch full HD multitouch
  • Cameras: 3 MP front, 8 MP back
  • Connectivity: WiFi, Bluetooth, micro HDMI, GPS
  • Operating system: Ubuntu mobile with X11 apps, including GIMP and Firefox
  • Weight/Thickness: 1.04 pounds; 0.32 inches
  • Battery: 7280 mAh, embedded

According to various sources, Canonical will send test units to the press in April, so the consumers will probably be able to get theirs this spring as well. The price of a unit is $291 USD, and BQ will sell the Aquaris M10 in both Europe and the US.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
