New KDE Plasma-based Tablet

It has long been argued what is the best graphical interface in the Linux world, opinions aside from what I intend to bring in this article, the truth I always heard that the interface that was best prepared for mobile devices was KDE but until then I had not discovered and unseen any device running KDE Plasma with GUI. Well no more.

Plasma Activate a joint KDE community project, and open basysKom slx. The purpose of this open source project is to provide a fast embedded UX platform. 's for all types of tablets, smartphones and touch devices, such as set – top boxes, smart TVs, home automation and information and entertainment devices used in vehicles.

Spark a fully open tablet cost about 270, which runs the KDE Plasma Active interface.
