Spanish manufacturer BQ - which last year became the first company to launch an Ubuntu-powered smartphone - has unveiled a tablet running Ubuntu at the ongoing Mobile World Congress.

Dubbed BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition, the device is powered by a MediaTek MT8163A chipset with 1.5GHz quad-core processor, and sports a 10.1-inch (1920 x 1200 pixel resolution) display which is protected by Asahi's Dragontrail glass.

The tablet comes with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal memory which can be further expanded up to 200GB via microSD. It packs in a large 7,280mAh battery. In terms of camera, the device features an 8MP rear unit and a 5MP front shooter.

Measuring 246 x 171 x 8.2mm and weighing in at 470g, the Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition runs Ubuntu 15:04. While there's no word on the pricing yet, it will reportedly be available for purchase in the coming weeks.

Here's a 'hands-on' video of the device (in Spanish):

Current iPads have 2 gb of RAM (except the Pro), and Ubuntu is light enough so it isn't gonna need a whole bunch. This isn't a hog like Android

2GB's of ram? This isn't 2012 people, come on. 4GB should be the base model by now.
