Spark Linux Tablet – the masses want tablets with Linux!

Spark Linux Tablet - really now >_>

Unfortunately, unlike the operating platform, the Spark Linux Tablet isn’t coming for free, but the price tag is pretty close to that, so you won’t have to start selling your kids or other horrid things like that. In a market which is being over-run by Android based tablets, the Spark seems a little bit out of place, despite the common bloodline.

The Spark Linux based tablet is coming in with a 1GHz single core processor and 512MB of RAM. It will come with two USB ports along with a 3.5mm headphone jack. There will also be a front facing 1.3MP camera on the device, as well as standard issues Wi-Fi connectivity. The first generation of the Spark Linux tablet won’t come with 3G or GPS, however, there’s word that the second generation might just get that. Until then though, these are the specs. The 7 inch display comes with a modest resolution of 800 x 480 pixels and you will also get a micro SD card slot.

The Spark Linux tablet will set you back roughly 200 Euros here and the manufacturer is planning on bringing the tablet stateside however, I don’t know how competitive the tablet can be with apps being developed en-masse for Android and iOS not to mention the specs. You can get a quad-core tablet for that money in the near future, so my advice – if you are a Linux fan (spinning while reading this post) then you might want to give it a look, but other than that, not worth it.
