Keep an eye on the news: the BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition can now be purchased. The first converging tablet on the market could be booked from March 28, but it has not been until today that it has been made available to buy without waiting beyond the time it takes to get home from their comparators. We cannot know exactly how the delivery times are, as it seems that a complete order will need to be placed in order to know when they will arrive home. In any case, it should not take long, but they will probably start arriving from April 21, the day on which Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) will be officially launched.
On the day of its presentation, Ubunlog wrote an article in which we told you what this tablet was BQ and Canonical. There are two versions: a normal edition with HD screen for € 219.90 and one with FHD screen for a price of € 269.90. The screen will be the only difference between the two models, sharing the other components exactly the same, like the 64-bit MediaTek MT8163A processor four-core and a Mali-T720 MP2 GPU or 3D sound.
The Aquaris M10 tablet arrives with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
The BQ Aquaris M10 will come with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, but the tablet version will use a Unity 8, which will not be available in the desktop version until later, possibly in a different distribution than the standard. In any case, the Aquaris M10 will use Ubuntu Touch with Canonical’s next graphical environment.
It must be acknowledged that its price is very competitive. For less than € 300 (buying a wireless keyboard and mouse) we can have a whole desktop computer and a tablet with Ubuntu. The question is: are you going to buy the Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition?
