Magic happens with the Ubuntu tablet – TechRepublic

Jack Wallen reviews the bq Aquaris M10 tablet and he’s impressed. If you’ve been on the fence about Ubuntu Touch, this might just assuage those unpleasant feelings.

Canonical tried to do this with their last attempt to crowdsource their Ubuntu phone, but it didn’t make enough money. This one looks pretty good too. Now I wonder if I could run Android apps on there too. :D

GfxTablet

GfxTablet (Graphic Tablet) is a project that consists of two parts — one is Linux input driver, and the other is an Android app. It turns your Android device into a graphics tablet and you can control your Linux machine with your tablet. There is no screen output on the android device and stylus/finger motion is transmitted to the Linux box.

The only downside is there’s no option for “lefty” mode for people like me. :(

It will be interesting to see how well I can use this.
