Juno Computers Announces New Tablet for Preorder

Oct 17, 2022

Juno Computers brings to market one of the first commercial Linux tablets that could be consumer-friendly and a viable option for those wanting an open source mobile device.

The promise of a Linux tablet has been one so many in the community have been holding their breath over. Every so often a company will make a promise, only to fail on the delivery. If Juno Computers has anything to say about it, that all changes with a Debian-based, Mobian Linux/KDE Plasma device.

The new tablet has a 10.1", full HD touchscreen that also has an optional stylus pen, which is an extra $22. The new tablet is powered by an Intel Celeron N5100 4 Core CPU that runs at 1.1 GHz and includes a 2.8GHz turbo and 8GB LPDDR4 RAM. Internal storage is 256 GB and is upgradeable to 1TB. The display features a 60HZ refresh rate and an FHD IPS touchscreen at 1920 x1200.

You can stick with the default Mobian OS or go with Plasma Mobile or Phosh (both of which are based on Manjaro). Also featured are a 3200 mAh 7.6 battery, a 5MP rear and 1MP front camera, a built-in microphone, and stereo speakers.

You can now pre-order the tablet, which starts at $429.00. One thing to keep in mind is that, according to the Juno Computers website, "Juno Tablet is a Beta product – overall the tablet works well but it is still facing some bugs that need to be fixed."

Pre-order your tablet on the official Juno Computers site.
