Build and Display

The BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu shows off solid construction and is protected on the front by durable Asahi Dragontrail glass. It is relatively slim and lightweight at just 8.2 millimetres and 470 grams respectively, making it look like one that will be easy to handle.

The slate crams in a humongous 10.1-inch IPS touch display with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,200 pixels promising nice wide-angle viewing.

Processor and Memory

The tablet is driven by a quad-core MediaTek MT8163A processor which runs along at speeds of up to 1.5 GHz. The CPU is given decent support by 2 GB of RAM that looks capable of supporting enjoyable multitasking and manageably high responsiveness.

However, onboard storage capacity of 16 GB does leave more to be desired. It is a good thing that you will be able to extend storage capacity further by up to 64 GB via a microSD card slot.

All-in-One Tablet

The BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu could be described as an all-in-one slate, thanks to its operating system. Ubuntu lets you run the same apps on different devices – be it a phone, tablet, or computer.

You will be able to convert the tablet into a laptop or desktop PC by just connecting it to an external display or a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse. The Aquaris M10 Ubuntu essentially offers you more for the price of one.

Miscellaneous Specs and Features

You will be able to get the slate only in a Wi-Fi model, based on available information at this time. The BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu supports a Side Stage feature which enables you split its huge screen into two to use different apps simultaneously.

It offers an 8-megapixel rear camera with autofocus and a 5-megapixel selfie camera – impressive for a slate. You will be able to shoot high-resolution Full HD (1080p) videos with the device.

The Aquaris M10 Ubuntu features a micro HDMI slot (for connecting to a monitor) as well as frontal speakers. It is supplied juice by a powerful 7,280mAh Li-Polymer battery.

BQ Aquaris M10 is not yet available in Nigeria. When available, you can buy it at leading online stores in the country. BQ Aquaris M10 Price in Nigeria is expected to range from N50,000 to N90,000 depending on your location in Nigeria.
