UBUNTU --
Another week, another Ubuntu Tablet news item... This time there's an unheard of company that's looking to deliver an Ubuntu Tablet inspired by Canonical's failed Ubuntu Edge smartphone.

Inspired by the Ubuntu Edge smartphone that ultimately failed in its crowdfunding campaign, a company known as MJ Technology is looking to deliver the Edge's equivalent in tablet form. MJ Technology is looking to have Ubuntu Tablets in 8.9 and 10.1 inch models.

The initial Ubuntu Tablet from MJ is expected to have a 2.4GHz Intel quad-core CPU, 4GB of DDR3 memory, 64GB of internal storage, microSD slot, two standard USB 2.0 ports, HD IPS display, 5GHz WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI out, and will weigh under 1.5lbs.

Mark Jun, the CEO of MJ Technology, contacted Phoronix to share this information today on this "Ubuntu Tablet comparable to Ubuntu Edge." The company will have out more information on the tablet around the time of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January. Review samples will be out in about one month.

Here's some photos sent over to Phoronix by Mark of the final prototype of the device:
