Linux Tablet 'PineTab' With Ubuntu Touch Is Now Available For Preorder

Do you wish for a Linux-compatible tablet to get full freedom and control of your system? Then, you must check out the latest state-of-the-art PineTab Tablet by Linux hardware vendor, PINE64.

As announced earlier, PINE64 has now started to receive the Preorders for its Linux Tablet PineTab. It is based on an open-source ARM64 architecture that comes with UBport’s Ubuntu Touch OS by default. However, PineTab also supports several mainline Linux-based operating systems such as Manjaro Linux and GNOME 3.36.

If you want to know everything about PineTab, read our article here that contains full technical and hardware details. For a quick overview, here I’m listing the key specifications of PineTab:

  • Allwinner A64 Quad Core System on chip (SoC)
  • 2GB LPDDR3 RAM and 64GB eMMC
  • 10-inch 720p Capacitive LCD
  • 2MP front and 5MP rear camera
  • 6000mAh battery
  • Bootable micro SD Slot and HD Digital Video Out
  • USB 2.0 and Micro USB 2.0 OTG

Besides up to the mark specs, another reason that might convince you to look for PineTab is the special expansion adapter board. PineTab allows you to add extra functionality such as LTE, LoRa, and SATA SSD by installing multiple expansions onto its adapter board.
