Just a year after the introduction of Ubuntu based smartphone, Spanish makers Canonical and BQ have now started taking pre-orders for the World’s First Ubuntu Tablets.
The news has sent a wave of happiness among Linux users who want to make the operating system away from the PC. You can book the new tablet from March 28, 2016, and according to latest updates, the devices will start shipping from the second week of April.
This new tablet has been named Aquarius M10, and it is being priced at $278.
Canonical has been talking about mobile-PC convergence for the past couple of years, and finally, they have come out with a product which will provide a switch between touch-based tablet to the ‘Full Ubuntu Desktop Experience’. You can quickly switch on to PC mode, and can use it to perfection after connecting a mouse and keyboard.

This new gadget has a 10.1 Inch Display, and it has an internal memory of 16GB. The tablet is powered with 2GB RAM and 1 GHz quad-core processor. You can pre-order it here.
These features clearly indicate that Aquarius M10 falls in the class of mid-range tablets. Full HD Display Tablet is available if you are ready to spend $313.
As of now, Aquarius M 10 will be available for sale only in Europe, and we are not clear about the date in which it will be launched in the United States.
The market fate of this new gadget is still unpredictable, as customers in the modern world are more used with tablets from Android and Apple.
The price range of Aquarius is also not that attractive, and in all probabilities, this device will be received by enterprise IT customers, and it has fewer chances to impress common men.
