Five open source alternatives to the iPad (opensource.com)
[Announcements] Posted Apr 5, 2010 17:36 UTC (Mon) by jake
Opensource.com briefly looks at iPad alternatives, which provide a less locked-down experience than the new tablet from Apple. Several are not yet for sale—or are theoretical like the Google tablet—but they start to give an idea of what will be coming in the free-software-based tablet world. "A 2-pound tablet for 300-400€ with a Linux OS designed specifically for a touchscreen with usability in mind. That's the completely open source iFreeTablet developed at the University of Cordoba in Spain. And you get the Flash support and multitasking you can only dream of with that shiny iPad. It's biggest shortcoming is the mere 2.5 hour battery life."
