I'm looking for kickass open source tablet with the following requirements:
-Linux, or open source equavalent;
-Full HD resolution or something that's not a pathetic 1024*768;
-Something that has the screen size of an iPad (at least not some useless in-between iPad and smartphone size);
-Must be able to develop on in more langauges than just Java (C and C++);
-Costing below 501 dollars/euro's.
Does it even exist? Plug-on keyboard a bonus. nVidia is a no-go.
Doubtful. I expect to see all or nearly all to be locked in with MS's UEFI secure boot without any option of disabling it provided by the manufacturers.
It doesn't nessecarily have to be a Windows 8 tablet; it could also be the ripple through the market that could sparc some more serious full desktop tablets with common x86-64 hardware and Linux ports to be getting upstream ARM Linux kernel support.
There has to be some tablet in there that doesn't get its ass locked. In the worst case scenario only a Linux shop would offer a lock-less UEFI BIOS. PS: Dell with Ubuntu.
