Cisco working on a Atom-powered Ubuntu Linux tablet

 

Looks like the business Android-based Cius wasn’t the only tablet out of Cisco (CSCO) this week, the company’s also announced a countertop unit built for home energy management that comes with a 7-inch WVGA capacitive touch screen with 800 x 480 resolution. The Tablet Runs on a Ubuntu Linux operating system and is powered by a 1.1GHz Intel Atom chip and comes with 512MB of RAM, 1.5GB of flash storage.  The Cisco Linux tablet is designed to be a “Home Energy Controller” that connects to smart thermostats and appliances over 802.11n WiFi or gigabit ethernet using protocols including ZigBee. It’s designed to help you cut down and keep an eye on your electricity usage, and suggests ways you could improve it.

I think the latest verison of Ubuntu on a tablet is the way to go. It’s just to bad that it would never have the app store that the Apple iPad and Android tablets have.

Nice, since this is a counter top model I guess battery power won’t really matter.

Cisco should expand its Ubuntu tablet range.

I can’t wait to see some more Linux tablets be released.
