An Ubuntu-powered tablet is not something that folks would camp out for, but this does not mean we should not pay closer attention to such a tablet. The Intermatrix U7 is an Ubuntu tablet which has been touted to be the “first of its kind in the world”, hailing from Australian manufacturer Intermatrix. Just what kind of hardware does the Intermatrix U7 pack underneath the hood? For starters, it is said to come with a quad-core 1.5GHz Cortex A9 CPU, coupled with a quad-core Vivante GC1000+ GPU, and accompanied by 1GB RAM, 16GB of internal memory, a 7″ IPS capacitive touchscreen display as well as cameras in front and at the back.
Sounds fine and dandy, right? Actually, the answer would be “No”, considering how the bare minimum requirements for an Ubuntu tablet would be 2GB RAM. Considering how the Intermatrix U7 is tipped for an October release, hopefully there will be updates made to the Intermatrix U7 in order to make it more adequately equipped to handle Ubuntu on the go.
