Vivaldi Tablet Is A Re-designed Spark Linux Slate
After facing trademark issues, the Spark Linux tablet from KDE will now be known as the Vivaldi. The tablet now takes its name from the famous Italian Baroque music composer from the 18th century called Antonio Vivaldi. Following this development, there are now plans to name future devices after popular musicians.
The Vivaldi tablet was designed to have an open-source software that is based on the KDE Plasma Active UI. Linux was chosen instead of Google Android, which is the more popular choice for similar tablets.
Its specifications have caused some to believe that the device is a repackaged Zenithink Android tablet but this time running on KDE Plasma Active. This tablet is powered by a 1 GHz AMLogic ARM central processing unit alongside a Mali 400 GPU, 512 MB of RAM, and 4 GB of storage capacity.
Its capacitive display measures 7 inches. It is also equipped with integrated WiFi, two mini USB ports, and HDMI output.
It is expected to be available in May, although the trademark issues might stall the selling for some time. The tablet had been available for pre-order since February, but these had been stopped in favor of sign-ups that express interest in the new device.
The Vivaldi tablet will sell for $270.
