BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Tablet and the road to convergence
Yesterday, we published an article to show you guys the first hands-on video review of the BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition tablet, where one of the editors of Xataka, a well-known Spanish technology blog, tested the Ubuntu convergence.
“We’ve won at MWC16! Big thanks to Trusted Reviews for the Best Of MWC award for the BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu tablet,” said Canonical on their Google+, Facebook, and Twitter accounts, the latter being attached at the end of the article.
Of course, the Ubuntu Tablet is not the only winning product of Canonical at MWC 2016, as we believe that the new Meizu PRO 5 Ubuntu Edition smartphone is also a winner, and it’s the best Ubuntu-powered mobile phone to date.
