UbuTab is a tablet supposedly built to take advantage of both Android and Ubuntu Touch operating systems and promises some great hardware components. The tablets should start shipping mid-April, but there is a problem. Ubuntu developers have no knowledge about the possible implementation of Ubuntu Touch on the tablet.
Cube’s $399, Ubuntu-based “i7-CM” tablet has an Intel Core M CPU and an 11.6-inch HD display. Meanwhile, an Ubuntu-driven “MJ Tech” tablet has broken cover.
A Chinese company called Cube, owned by Ele Technology, has begun selling an Ubuntu Linux-based version of its Windows-based i7 tablet. The Cube i7-CM appears to be one of the first tablets to run the Ubuntu Touch UI extensions.
As first reported by CNGadget, and picked up by Liliputing, the i7-CM starts at just $399 at AliExpress, compared to $581 for the Windows version. The 11.6-inch tablet is notable for running on one of Intel’s new 14-nm fabricated Core M processors. Meanwhile, at least two other Ubuntu tablets are also in the works, including a model from MJ Technology.
Ubuntu for phones has been officially released and it's running on Bq phone in the wild, not to mention the thousands of Nexus 4 devices, but not many people know that it also comes with an integrated default firewall.
