KDE Plasma Active unveils $265 Spark tablet


As awesome as Android is, sometimes it's really nice and refreshing to see a device with another open-source platform installed. Today brings us one of those refreshing devices: the Spark tablet. For $265, the Spark will give you a 1GHz processor with a Mali 400 GPU, 512MB of RAM, 4G of internal storage, and a 7-inch capacitive screen.

Of course, the Spark tablet isn't just about its specs. What makes this device stand out from the crowd is its software. Like the title of this posts says, the KDE Plasma Active team is involved with the Spark project, and because of that, the tablet will run Linux with the team's free software distribution platform.

The platform for software distribution is completely community-driven and open. That's more than a few other platforms can say already, and at just $265, I think it's a fantastic deal. It looks unique and also supports open platforms and has a sense of community. I love that in technology, so I am a huge fan of this already.
