Vixtel Unity Tries To Be An Android + Ubuntu Tablet

Vixtel Unity is an Australian, corporate-focused effort to ship a tablet loaded with Ubuntu and Android to try to takeover where Canonical didn't with some of their tablet endeavors.

The reported Vixtel Unity tablet is to be a 10.1-inch Retina tablet, dual boots to Ubuntu and Android, supports keyboard connections, is backed by a quad-core processor, boasts 2GB of RAM, and provides 64GB of storage. The company informed us of their existence after we recently wrote on Phoronix about Canonical not actively working on Ubuntu for Android.

Given Vixtel Unity isn't a company we've heard much about and that they haven't sent over any products to be tested at Phoronix, we can't say much more about the product for the time being; in fact, it's not clear the product is even shipping at this time. Those wanting to learn more about this dual-booting Ubuntu + Android quad-core retina tablet can visit VixtelUnity.com.
