This would not be the first time I have talked about a computer (or similar) that has KDE pre-installed. Once on my old blog KDE4Life talk about Xompu, a computer from Germany that brings KDE installed by default.
Now it is the turn of a tablet called Spark.
Its hardware is somewhat modest, 1GHz AMLogic ARM processor, Mali-400 GPU, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage plus an SD card slot, multitouch system up to 7 ″, in addition to obviously having Wifi.
He is about 200 euros or 265 $ (USD).
But… What is the difference from the rest of the tablets?
On the market is the popular iPad (I reserve my opinion on such a "thing"), several tablets with Android, but this one has Active Plasma (KDE) 😀
In other words, we can no longer only have KDE on our desktop, laptop, now we can also use it on tablets 😉
Advantages of this?
Well, Android as far as I know it does not accept contributions to the code, but with the community development of KDE Yes it is possible to contribute to it.
Some details of KDE for mobile devices, it would be that the consumption would obviously be extremely lower than what we are used to, it would be used Qt / QML (I talked about this in the article: Is this the future of video players for KDE?), "cloud" support, etc 🙂
I don't know about you, but the news is phenomenal to me. Ignoring the issue of the tablet and being able or not to buy it, the fact that KDE Having such an advance in this type of device is undoubtedly something important 😀
