Ubuntu Tablet! Also a PC!

Ubuntu has been teasing a marketing campaign under the logo Reinvent, people have been speculating for days on what could it mean? Now we know there is a Tablet in the works, and it's out very soon!
The tablet is made by Spanish carrier BQ much like Ubuntu Phone, BQ Aquaris M10 will be available all over Europe directly from the manufacturer, unlike Ubuntu phone which was sold in flash sales..

Convergence

One of the killer features of this Tablet is convergence, the ability to turn it into a PC once connected to a wireless mouse and Keyboard, with the ability to work on the tablet at the same time for true multi-tasking! 
This also means that the apps developed for the tablet are the same as the desktop.

Ubuntu Scops

 It's a new concept that allows you to get services without downloading apps on your tablet.


Final word

The Ubuntu tablet could be a true game changer, being the first ever to run the open source OS, with nice specifications and convergence, could it break into the mainstream market and attract attention outside the open source world? Only time will tell!
