Ubuntu Tablet : Canonical Plans

Canonical's CEO Chris Kenyon recently had a discussion surrounding tablets and slate PCs, and this is one of the lines: "The devices world is a really exciting space right now and we're really bullish on it; hats off to the iPad team for doing what they did." Were Ubuntu Linux ported to any device you could name, it wouldn't be much of a surprise, but developer Canonical intends to release a tablet-specific branch of the OS this timeBased on Ubuntu 10.10 "Maverick Meerkat," the tablet version will actually be rolled into Ubuntu Light later on, but right now the company's busy romancing hardware providers -- Freescale, Marvell, and Texas Instruments have all signed deals, and both Intel and Pixel Qi will reportedly bring power-saving tech to the table .

Galaxy Tab is the first Android touch pad of the Korean manufacturer 
 Resolution of 1024 × 600, a processor running at 1 GHz and 512 MB RAM offers valuable resources to use another operating system,The hackers have managed to cover the touch pad Galaxy Tab version of VNC to use the open source operating system Ubuntu Linux based.

The tablet-specific version will be built about v10.10, which is currently code-named Maverick Meerkat in keeping with tradition. There are also plans to merge the tablet and netbook OS into a single
Ubuntu Light, which certainly makes a lot of sense given the move to touch even in the netbook space. It'll be interesting to see how this shakes out; Microsoft seems content with using a full version of Windows 7 even on tablets, while some consumers may prefer a more stripped-down experience. Could this be an opportunity for Linux to leapfrog Windows? Maybe!
