An ARM-based tablet powered by JingOS - the Linux-based Tablet OS

Ouch. Thanks for that link !


Good to see linux devices, but selling a proper linux tablet with “polished, mac like” will under deliver, I am sorry. People will buy this with the expectation that it’s like an iPad and it won’t be.

That’s not the fault of the device obv, but how it’s marketed.

Also I am not sure I would buy products like this from chinese brands, I know that the mi air notebook was very well speced 3 years ago and had a mac-like beautiful aluminum unibody. But having seen it and used it it was way too expensive for not having a mac like batterylife, cooling solution, display and many more things unfortunately. If they had bought a device for a similar price from any other major brand they would’ve gotten a better attuned device.

Good luck to them still, of course.

Looks nice but what’s the price?

All it says right now is sign up now for 40% off the price. Ok, if the price is $1,000 then I can’t afford it. If the price is $15.00 then I’ll still wait. So what’s the price?

Not sure about the screen with the rounded edges though. It would probably interfere with the UI if you were to run a normal desktop environment. Plus, it looks like it would add expense for at most a stylistic feature.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
