[News] Tablets Running GNU/Linux on the Rise

Hash: SHA1

Free software alternative to Apple's tablet

,----[ Quote ]
| Given the fierce competition in the market 
| of the tablets where all the big companies 
| in the sector: Apple, Google and Microsoft 
| have an alternative in the market or in 
| development, a Spanish company presents 
| after Apple a cheapest option, based on free 
| software. 


Google Chrome OS Tablet Demo Video Like a Bolt From The Blue

,----[ Quote ]
| With the Apple iPad buzz going around, there 
| can't be a better time to demonstrate the 
| 'tablet' implications of Google Chrome OS. 
| Google has not yet released this netbook 
| centric OS yet, but they are constantly in 
| the news with updates of their Chrome OS. 
| You may also want to watch this awesome 
| first glimpse video on Chrome OS UI.

| Linux accounted for roughly a third of the 
| 35 million or so netbooks to ship globally 
| last year, according to Jeff Orr, an analyst 
| at ABI Research, and predictions looking 
| ahead are generally rosy as well.
| On smartphones, meanwhile, Android had 
| snatched up 27 percent of the North American 
| market by the end of last year, according to 
| AdMob's December Mobile Metrics report -- 
| and that's surely increasing daily following 
| the launch of Google's (Nasdaq: GOOG) Nexus 
| One.

| Did you know that Google's Chome OS is 
| taking the form of a Tablet? 


Apple, Google and the open alternative

,----[ Quote ]
| True, the concerns and issues around 
| Androidâs openness, or lack thereof, have 
| significant implications. This is further 
| illustration of how Google may be the open 
| alternative juxtaposed against Apple, but by 
| adding its own strings and closures, Google 
| is also leaving the door open for another, 
| more open alternative. Perhaps Palm and its 
| WebOS are an example, but again, it seems no 
| matter what a company or consortium does, 
| they still leave opportunity for a 
| relatively more open alternative.

Chrome OS Concept Tablet Breaks Cover With Demo

,----[ Quote ]
| With all of this iPad buzz stirring up the
| tech world over the past couple of weeks,
| Chrome OS has almost been forgotten. That
| may have something to do with the fact that
| Google has yet to officially release the
| netbook-centric operating system to the
| public, but still, you'd expect a company
| like Google to keep the details flowing
| about a forthcoming operating system.
| Today it seems we're getting exactly what
| you'd expect, in response to all the recent
| tablet fanfare.


Google's Chrome OS Will Be for Tablets, Too

,----[ Quote ]
| When Google announced its Chrome OS last
| year, it intended this operating system to
| be for netbooks. Last week's unveiling of
| the Apple iPad has made tablet computers
| hot, though, and Google is making sure its
| upcoming OS will have this class of devices
| covered, too.


Google's tablet offerings will be very different from the iPad, expert says

,----[ Quote ]
| While Apple's iPad attempts to fill the gap
| between laptops and cell phones with the
| perfect hardware, Google will rely instead
| on a creative framework with its Chrome OS,
| according to CNET's Stephen Shankland.

Eight ways Android and Linux tablets can beat Apple's iPad

,----[ Quote ]
| Apple's newly announced iPad has been touted as "magical," "amazing,"
| and "revolutionary" by company officials. But, key deficiencies in the
| device provide opportunities for competitors, who can craft better tablets
| that run Linux or Android.
