Ubuntu wants to teach you how to use your BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition


A few minutes ago, on the Ubuntu blog a hand guide to show what uses the new BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition tablet can have for the common user. This device is the first to be a converged device from Canonical and BQ. This means that in addition to be used as a tablet, can also be used as a personal computer.

To do that about BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition, the user needs a keyboard, mouse and connector cable with which to make connections. BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition can work as a desktop computer either by connecting via bluetooth with the keyboard and mouse or through a cable.

BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition offers up to four different ways of use

Another option that Ubuntu Phone and BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition offer the user is to be able to connect the tablet to a monitor and make the tablet the computer that gives all the power to the equipmentIn this case, we can not only use it by connecting the device to a monitor but also by connecting the mouse and keyboard via bluetooth or through a cable that connects to the tablet. In either way, BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition it will work as Ubuntu Desktop or as Ubuntu Phone, two versions in one device.

Personally I think this device is interesting, at least as interesting or more than its competitors, because on the one hand the BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition is cheaper than another device and on the other hand, the BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition you only need one cable to get maximum performance while other devices like Microsoft's Lumia need a gadget that costs $ 50 more. The existence of the BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition is still small but it is sure that in a few months it surpasses other devices such as Microsoft or Apple in sales. What do you think?

    The truth is that you see a very interesting device, it hurts that it comes from the hand of BQ because this company has left me lying with a mobile and a tablet for those who promised to update and have not complied, therefore I do not think to buy anything that comes from them. A shame because the device is very attractive.

      With Ubuntu there will most likely be community updates

    Looks very good. I have tested Ubuntu on the Surface Pro 3 and very well (although unity 8 fails), in this it will also be optimized. For my taste it lacks the compatibility with a stylus (I am more in favor of a galaxy note with spin or another tablet with a stylus, than of a normal tab) and LTE connection to have data without depending on the mobile, since otherwise you drain the battery of the mobile right away.

    Just to tell you that I install Xubuntu 1LTS Xenial Xerus for the first time and I really like its interface a lot. . . even more than Ubuntu 😉
