"World's first Ubuntu tablet" looks like a bad idea

Ubuntu is a desktop system, and it's good at it. Keep to what you're good at.

Yeah, good thing that Apple and Google kept to what they were good at. Would have sucked if they branched out into new products.

Also, I don't think tablet and phone OS versions are so much of a branching out as a logical next step. Desktops are becoming much less important so portable computing is where you want to be going.

Apple and Google did branch out, what are you talking about? Apple went from the desktop OS to making iOS for phones and tablets, and you have Apple TV. Google has gone from a search engine to making Android, Chome browser, Chrome OS, Google TV, etc.

Preorder a thing that would come in one year is a bit weird...
It's a tablet, not an hand made Pagani !

Please title your article properly... To PA anything order than Android, WP, iphone is a bad idea, seems to me that whatever makes money is good and anything new is not.
Ubuntu is all about flexibility. Ubuntu does not prevent you to release a tablet with whatever version is currently available, we have upgrade options later. we have an ARM version for Ubuntu for about a year now.

agree man, I was a fan of this site earlier, but now a days it seems these guys have lost it completely, or may they are getting paid by Apple. Quality of articles have seriously depreciated, they are focusing more on quantity of articles than quality. I hope these writers are not 16 year olds!

PA can't tolerate a new OS enter to the market, they only worship iOS...

Have you completely ignored all of our other Ubuntu coverage?

Good at least someone other than big players dared to take the lead. This would make others start thinking. Good for Ubuntu. All Ubuntu needs is not APPS but good collection of GAMES to begin with in addition to 10-12 good productivity/office related apps. Have all the popular GAMES and Ubuntu will become popular.

It's not such an issue.
There's Wine and the Steam is taking an initiative
