Black Friday 2010 Linux Tablet Deals

Filed under
Hardware

As many of you know the day after Thanksgiving, known as Black Friday,Black Friday Linux Deals on Netbooks and Tablets is the busiest shopping day of the year in the United States. Shoppers can find all sorts of special deals and discounts especially on technology related merchandise. In past years I’ve got up early and waded through the crowds to save a few bucks on my favorite tech gear. Last year I raved about a few Linux netbooks that caught my attention but this year Linux tablets have made it a whole new ball game. Deals on many different types of Linux netbooks, tablets and other cool gear have got me fine-tuning my Black Friday 2010 strategy and gearing up for some serious competition.

One item on my shopping list this holiday season is a Linux based tablet device. I decided to check the Sunday ad section and put together this list of Black Friday 2010 Linux Tablet Deals.

The key focus here is musl; Java has previously been ported to the standard glibc library, which you can install in Alpine, but the standard Alpine release switched two years ago to musl because it’s much faster and more compact.

Jolla inks exclusive license to kick-start its Android alternative in China

Mobile OS maker Jolla, whose Sailfish platform remains one of the few smartphone alternatives in play these days, has signed an exclusive license to a Chinese consortium to develop a Sailfish-based OS for the country. Jolla says the Chinese consortium will be aiming to invest $250M in developing a Sailfish ecosystem for the country, though it’s not specifying exactly is backing the consortia at this point, nor over what timeframe the investment will happen — beyond saying one of its early investors, a local private equity investor Shan Li, will take a “leading role” in building it up. “There are very big players behind it,” Jolla chairman Antti Saarnio tells TechCrunch, speaking ahead of a press conference held to announce the news here at the Mobile World Congress tradeshow in Barcelona.
