New Linux tablet aims to make Ubuntu desktop mobile

If you weren't scared off by Jolla's tablet disaster on Indiegogo, another little-known brand wants you to back its Intel-based Ubuntu Linux tablets.

MJ Technology's goal is to build a true x86/x64 tablet, so it can run Ubuntu desktop.

Ubuntu fans thirsty for a tablet running the Linux OS may have a new option on the horizon from US outfit MJ Technology, which is touting four models in a new crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.

Jolla's Sailfish OS tablet fundraiser on Indiegogo didn't pan out too well for backers of the Android alternative, who ultimately weren't left out of pocket but wasted time on a product that for many never arrived.

MJ Technology is hoping that anyone not turned off by that experience will take a punt on its Ubuntu-powered devices.

If MJ Technology reaches its $200,000 target, the company promises to deliver 10.1-inch Mini Tanto for $230 by August. The device is advertised as having a 1.92GHz Intel Atom processor, 2GB, 64GB storage, and HD display at 1,920 x 1,200 pixels.
