BEIJING, April 30, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The company behind JingOS plans to launch a crowdfunding campaign on indiegogo for an ARM-powered tablet preloaded with their JingOS in June 2021, they call it the ‘First Consumer-level Linux Tablet – JingPad A1’.
The pre-launch page for the campaign has been online for almost a week now. People who are interested in this project can now leave an email on the page to get coupons for the product.
Jingling (the company behind JingPad and JingOS) claims that the JingPad A1 will be:
the first Linux tablet with support for the 5G / 4G cellular network and an ARM processor, the only Linux-based device on the market with an 11-inch AMOLED 2K screen (4: 3) ratio, the first device to support a stylus with 4096 pressure levels.
“The specs and materials of JingPad A1 are all consumer-level. 2K+Display/5G/Keyboard/Stylus! It is the first time that you can have a real consumer-level Linux device as your daily driver!” Inspired by iPadOS and iPad Pro, JingPad is defined to be a tablet and a laptop too. JingOS is an Ubuntu-based Linux OS, which is designed to be a tablet first and a ‘laptop-lite’ experience second. Powered by JingOS, JingPad can run mobile apps (Android) and desktop apps (Linux). Check out the video below to learn more about the Linux tablet.
“We love Linux just like anyone else in the open-source world. But we hate running Linux on outdated devices. So we always ask ourselves: why can’t we have a modern device based on open source code?” These are the words of the developer at the opening of the video.
The promotional video released by Jingling gives us a better look at the tablet and its accessories, including a pen with support for 4096 levels of pressure sensitivity and a keyboard with a kickstand and hinge that should provide a laptop-like experience when the tablet is docked.
The tablet has a 2368 x 1728 pixel display with a 4:3 aspect ratio, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage. It also has a cellular modem. Jingling says the tablet supports 4G LTE wireless networks in most countries, but only promises 5G support for “some countries.” A detailed list is expected in June.
