With the gazillion Android-powered tablets out there in the market trying to jostle with the Apple iPad for supremacy in the tablet market, sometimes an alternative could prove to be rather refreshing. Case in point, the Spark tablet which runs off a Linux-based operating system. First of all, let us delve into the specifications of the Spark tablet – it will come with a 1GHz processor alongside a Mali GPU, feature 512MB RAM, 4GB of internal memory, and a 7″ capacitive touchscreen display, all in exchange for $265.
Since software will make or break even amazing hardware, we are well pleased to discover that the Spark tablet does have its fair share of hits in terms of software. Since the KDE Plasma Active team is involved with the Spark project, you can be sure that the Spark tablet will run Linux, coupled with the team’s free software distribution platform. Since software distribution is wholly community-driven and open, you can be sure that enthusiasts who jump aboard the Spark tablet bandwagon will be on the lookout for some fun apps, and if none are available, I am quite sure that several of them will get down to code amazing software in due time – what do you think?
