This has already been reported on by every tech news outlet that matters and more than a few that don’t but I’m mentioning it again incase anyone has been sleeping in the audience.
The spark tablet is a fully open Linux stack toting KDE Active plasma enabled gadget for the true FOSS fan who happens to want a tablet. That means you’ll be able to run full blown linux apps on the thing and tinker to your hearts content. Compared to Android you’re looking at a much more open device.
You can get more details over on the Aaron Seigo blog where all of the official info is coming from.
As a Linux/FOSS nerd I’m excited and I think I’ll be picking one up when possible. At $260 the hardware is rather unimpressive, but with support from the community on this initial version I think we could see something truly great from these guys in the future.
