After trying (at this moment !) an Android ARM architecture, (Nexus 7, which seems quite nice)
I really wish I could get another x86 tablet with good battery life, like Surface Pro 3 maybe. (but 3 USB ports - not ONE !)
Android hardware is a complete and steaming dribbling pile of wasted time and effort.
UBUNTU Touch or whatever they call it this week or next week is an utterly hopeless mangle.
I am running Sabayon XFCE on a strange tablet I got shipped direct from the factory in China (no manual, etc)http://hiton.en.alibaba.com/product/157 ... et_pc.html
on which absolutely everything works (wifi, GSM, sd reader, 3 usb 2.0 ports - everything works no need NDIS or shims)
but the battery is a horrible 3.5 hours max. The screen is a bit cramped, I loathe capacitive screens as well.
You must replace SLIM or lightdm with METACITY (google for how people do that)
so the touchscreen works properly - and implement your onscreen keyboard in a sane manner.
And be sure to crank up the ram to 2gb, or it slurs quite a bit.
And don't bother trying KDE or GNOME - they use entirely too much resources (LXDE might work).
Enlightenment works well (E17) but I was prepping this for linux-phobic colleagues.
I have caveats for trying anything on LENOVO given they have had weird drivers on stuff in tpasthe
Aside from the battery
this piece of junk is ORDERS - OF - MAGNITUDE - BETTER than _ANY_ android crippleware
and leaves UBUNTU TOUCH wishing it were a real OS.
(UT will never be a real Operating System, given the way that team keeps discarding goalposts)
[ P.S. - it is running 64bit
I have fotos but nowhere to post them so they remain in posterity]
