DaVinci Kite Tablet Android 4.0 and Ubuntu 12.04: Specs, Price, Release Date


The Naples-based electronics company – DaVinci Mobile Technology – has officially announced the availability of its Kite tablet that runs on Android 4.0 and Ubuntu 12.04, and it will initially roll out exclusively on pre-order arrangement. This lightweight Ubuntu/Android gadget boasts of a definition that is higher by 10 percent compared to the Full-HD handsets that are available in the market today. While we are not experiencing supply shortage when it comes to handsets that run on Android OS, it is obviously a different story when we talk of gadgets that operate on Ubuntu Linux. This welcome news comes while the mobile plans by Canonical are still up in the air.

This sleek 10.1-inch slate touts a set of standard specs and features. The Naples-based electronics company outfitted the handset with an IPS multi-touch capacitive display panel with a 1,920 x 1,200p resolution. It comes out of the box with a 1.4GHz Exynos quad-core processor from Samsung and backed up by 2GB RAM. It also has 32GB internal storage and features a 2MP snapper on the rear and a VGA front-facing camera for regular video chat.

This 10.1-inch Kite tablet supports Bluetooth 4.0 and WiFi b/g/n, USB mouse and keyboard, gyroscope and GPS. The device weighs about 539 grams and has a 258.3 x 164 x 9.5mm footprint. And with its dual OS, this Kite tablet provides users access to over 700,000 apps which are available through Google Play Store and over a million on the Linux side through the Software Center of Ubuntu.

The gadget will be selling for $410 or €309 and will offer a 3-year warranty. It will debut in Italian markets by mid-February, although there are no firm plans yet for an international release.
