KDE Plasma Active Spark tablet shown off in video

 

KDE Plasma Active's $265 Spark tablet is looking to be one of the better tablets out there; it's a little more expensive than the Kindle Fire and a few other tablets, but the Spark has one special differentiating factor: it runs Linux.

By running linux, the Spark is completely open, meaning that owners can hack, customize, and do whatever they want to the tablet. And the tablet comes with some good specs, too: a 1GHz processor, Mali 400 GPU, 512MB of RAM, and 4GB of internal storage round out the innards. 

The video that was released today shows off how well the tablet performs. It's very reponsive to touch, and the animations look very smooth as well. Hopefully the Spark will ship sometime in May, but there's no guarantee exactly when it will ship. 

When it is released, are you going to pick one up?

    This looks like the return of UMPCs. I wish the device would be pocketable. Just make the screen 1″ smaller and minimize the bezzel.

    Also the HW is a little underpowered. I hope there will be a second version with more powerful HW.

    Or maybe one day I will be able to use plasma active on my Viliv S5.
