Italian tablet PC runs Ubuntu Linux

Italy-based Ekoore is shipping a tablet PC that runs Ubuntu Linux or Windows on an Intel Atom N270. The Ekoore ET10TA10 offers a 10.2-inch, 1024 x 600 backlit touchscreen, as well as 1GB of RAM, flash expansion, a 160GB hard disk drive (HDD), and WiFi, Bluetooth, Ethernet, and USB connections, says Ekoore.

With the Apple iPad expected to ship this week, other tablet makers are hoping to share some of the glory. In the case of the ET10TA10, Ekoore appears to be aiming primarily at the Italian market with an netbook-like Atom-based platform that has the benefit of being cross platform. The tablet ships with Ubuntu Linux (version unspecified), as well as Windows XP, while supporting other Linux and Windows operating systems.
