Nubio/Kite Full HD tablet dual-boots Android and Ubuntu, goes for $413

Remember those Ubuntu articles Michael keeps slipping in? Well, now you can take it for a ride in the form of a top-notch tablet device, which as the cherry on the cake dual-boots it with Android ICS.

The Italians from DaVinci Mobile Technology are now taking preorders for their Nubio Full HD/Kite HD tablet, which boasts a 10.1" display with the respectable 1920x1200 pixels resolution, a 1.4 GHz quad-core Exynos 4412 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage plus a microSD slot, and a 2 MP rear camera. The tablet is also fairly thin at 0.37", and weighs just 19 ounces

Ubuntu's version is 12.04 for ARM processors, and the Wi-Fi version of the Nubio Full HD slate will be going for EUR 309, which is about $413, not shabby at all, and you have to put about 10% down for the preorder.

Gosh, we're getting close to the first true, spectacular all in one device now.
Imagine a Galaxy Note 3 -5.8" full hd display, 20nm 2.0+ ghz octa core processor in the range of high end ultrabook power(5500-6500 in geekbench and ~200GFLOPS GPU), long battery life and great camera - that can dual boot Ubuntu for some serious productivity, document editing and even programming, with the clever implementation of the next generation of S-pen.

It's my dream purchase
