The ‘BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition’ (to give the model its full name) is a high-resolution 10-inch tablet — and then some.
Connect a keyboard and mouse and the M10 transforms from a content-consuming Scope wonderland into a content-creating workstation that runs all your favourite desktop apps, like Firefox and LibreOffice.
Exciting news, right? And chances are you have some questions about it, too.
So join us as we give you a deeper look at the device that’s on the lips of open-source gadget fans the world over.
When can I buy the Bq Aquaris M10 Ubuntu tablet?
BQ is yet to pick a precise date (which we’ll let you know of as soon as we do).
‘Unlike last year, there will be no limited-time flash sale’
But you can expect it very soon. Like, next month soon; both BQ and Canonical say the tablet will go on sale in March.
How Much Will It cost?
BQ is yet to settle on a final price, but we can make an educated guess.
The Android version of the M10 (FHD) sells for €259. As both the Bq Aquaris E4.5 and E5 Ubuntu Phones retailed at a similar price to their Android siblings, it’s not unreasonable to expect to pay somewhere around the €250 mark, excluding shipping.
Where Will It Be Sold?
BQ is selling the Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition tablet directly through their global storefront website.
Unlike last year, there is no limited-time flash sales, no invitation to find, and no origami wall to bang your head against.
Will It Ship To My Country?
If you’re in mainland Europe, the UK, or the US the answer is yes, you can buy it. BQ happily ship to most places..
Remember to factor in the cost of shipping and any local import duties that may be applicable.
