NachtVorst's Nocturnal Vagaries

Just read the announcement by Aaron Seigo, one of the most respected KDE developers, that the Spark will be released soon for €200. It will be the first tablet computer running completely on Free software!

The device will have the Plasma Active interface (KDE for mobile devices and TVs) running on an open Linux stack on unlocked hardware. The device is probably an A9 Zenithink ZT-280 C71, a pretty decent little tablet for the price with the following features:

  • 1 GHz ARMv7 (Cortex A9)  processor with Mali-400 GPU
  • 7″, 800 x 480, 5-point multi-touch capacitive display
  • 512 MB RAM, 4 GB Flash, micro-sd slot
  • WiFi and 3G
  • 1080p HDMI output
  • 335 grams

I’m using a similarly type of tablet (slightly bigger and faster) and it’s good enough for most things you’d want to do on a tablet, but I really do miss an HDMI output on mine…
