Android, Windows and Linux coexist peacefully on this 11.6-inch tablet

Now that's the kind of device we don't get to hear about every day. At a glance, this contraption may seem like a typical hybrid device – a tablet that transforms into a laptop when paired with a docking station. However, the Ekoore Python S3 is different for three operating systems can coexist independently on it, namely Windows, Ubuntu, and Android...

IT is ok but 1.1GHZ dual-core is tooo little for andriod and price too high

No, it's a x86 "Sandy Bridge" Intel CPU, nothing to do with ARM and it will handle perfectly Android and Windows 8 Pro.

Bollocks. You're comparing apples to oranges. Yes, there are 'only' two cores running at 1.1GHz inside this Celeron. But they are Sandy Bridge x86 cores. In GeekBench, for example, it scores as good as Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 Pro. Moreover, the Intel HD Graphics on it puts Adreno 320 to shame.
This tablet is indeed no benchmark top grabber, but it does the job nicely.

You want a cookie for a bloody desktop GPU outperforming a smartphone's GPU? Goodness the depth of depravity, that should be a given as it's a desktop processor no real power savings nor heat dissipation to worry about when you have a desk to house the thing. How about those Intel Atom chips, that would be a little fairer comparison versus Qualcomms Snapdragon chips wouldn't it?

"depth of depravity" ...going overboard much?
18. YuLeven (Posts: 50; Member since: 14 May 2013)
Right you are, it's not fair to compare both designs. They're essentially different as the Celeron isn't suited for small tablets nor smartphones and Krait is. The whole point of my reply was the simple fact that this tablet performs as good as four Krait cores and outperforms Qualcomm's SoC easily when it comes to GPU. For that matter, battery life is quite decent too. So, the dog-in-the-corner chap's comment has absolutely no point.

It's used in a Samsung Chromebook and proved to be much better than Exynos 5250

Awesome tablet. Man this is an awesome time for tablets.

I'd buy it IMMEDIATELY if it came with Linux and Android! But I don't want to pay for a Windows license I'd never use.

i do not like this sort of thing, if you're constantly in a situation where you actually need to boot to an alternative OS regularly on a tablet surely you're doing something wrong?

What's is the point of this tablet?
If you have windows 8 pro, you can run android through bluestack, and run ubunto on a virtual machine. why i need a triple boot?!!

LOVE the concept. Just wish a company like Asus makes one of these. I'd buy it immediately!
11. MorePhonesThanNeeded (Posts: 645; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
It's going to need a bigger hard disk, if that's full fat windows 8 on there. Crappy specs and high price make this a pass, why buy this at all?

I'm glad to see they've consider Ubuntu. Right now I'm using Xubuntu 13.04. Linux is my primary OS then comes Windows 8.
14. Bilpocalypse (Posts: 301; Member since: 13 Oct 2012)
I personally would rather run Linux Mint or Bohdi Linux on it. Haven't liked Ubuntu since they changed the UI.
16. Bluesky02 (Posts: 1439; Member since: 05 Dec 2011)
Yeah that's why I'm not using Ubuntu Official, I'm waiting for Linux Mint 15 which is supposed to be release by end of this month.
20. Bilpocalypse (Posts: 301; Member since: 13 Oct 2012)
I still hope Ubuntu does well though, since everybody seems to use their repository these days.
21. Bluesky02 (Posts: 1439; Member since: 05 Dec 2011)
Yeah I think it will do very well. You know since Valve (Developer of Half Life, Counter Strike) announced Steam development for Linux, Ubuntu got some serious popularity. Valve want to create a Steam Box that will have Ubuntu as default O. So we'll have some good games on Linux. Now there are even High End PC Model of Alienware with Ubuntu as default OS. I think this is just the beginning. You can check these following sites.

Linux Mint user here.
I don't like it. Its instability is really annoying. I'm going to switch pretty soon. First it was laziness, now it's holding out to see how Mageia 3 looks.

You dont HAVE to use unity you know.... that said I too prefer mint though lol
