Making the world safe for Open Source

eRacks is set to begin testing a Linux Ubuntu based tablet. The 7 inch tablet would retail for around $200 and would include several key features missing from the Kindle Fire: including a micro SD slot, a built in camera, HDMI out and GPS support.  If you’re in the market for a tablet, you may want to keep an eye on the eRacks website. An upcoming software update would make it possible for the tablet install and run Android apps.

    Would pay more for capacitive. But really been looking forward to a tablet with ubuntu.

    With Ubuntu, I’d be able to setup the apps, like a browser to a home-based server, to auto-start-up on power.
    With tablets near every room, it would have a startrek vibe.
    I’d be able to stream music, voice to every tablet in every room.
    Come-on Beta Testing!

    Hey there! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when browsing from my iphone4. I’m trying
    to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem.
    If you have any recommendations, please share. Thank
    you!
